Mermaid Collages: Algea Lingerie

For some reason, I have a magazine subscription to Elle that I have no recollection anymore of purchasing.

It's possible that years and years ago, I signed up for one of those random subscriptions that included Elle....but it has never expired.  I feel like they somehow keep renewing the subscription without me knowing.  And how they managed to follow me when I moved from apartment to clue...

But, I used it as an opportunity to collect little clippings and fun ads.  Of course when anything was said or insinuated about mermaids, I would clip that little bit out.  I have tons of little clippings about mermaids, the ocean, or the color green sitting in my journal...waiting for the right time to connect with the glue stick.

"The vocabulary word for this back-to-school month is algeabra- the single biggest lingerie problem facing mermaids."

That little bit makes me giggle to this day.  It's so cheesy!  Even for Elle!

Now, I don't claim to be any artist.  These are just extensions of my mermaid doodles.  But I had fun with them.


  1. Have you ever been to the mermaid parade (or something like that) in Jersey, I think? I saw it online one time and thought it seemed very cool. I'm a maniac for dressing up!

    Saw you commented @ Arnetta's blog. She is a witty woman!

  2. Yes!!! The Mermaid Parade is in Coney Island! :D It's so much fun!

    Arnetta is awesome! I've only been following her for a short while, but I thoroughly enjoy her posts :)


Well, hello there! What's on your mind?
