New Contest Coming - Mermaids


Blog Posted:5/28/2014 9:41:00 PM
Hello Dear Soupers.:

I have completed four mixed media collages of mermaids.
I am going to offer three of them as prizes in a Contest
calling for a poem about mermaids.
There will be a prize for
Ist, 2nd and 3rd Place.

After a frustrating 30 minutes I had no luck uploading the images
into this blog, but I have put a link to the Album on my Photobucket.
First Place getter will choose first, 2nd will get the next choice and 3rd will choose between the  two remaining collages.
They measure 4 1/4"x5 1/2".
