Another fabric ATC

This morning it is cloudy, humid and rainy so I won't be outside to weed my flower beds. Since my sewing machine was still set up; I decided to make another fabric ATC while I was waiting for my laundry to finish.
I love anything to do with the sea, and I love mermaid art so that is where the inspiration came for this new project.
I added some curly fibers to represent seaweed, and then added a little shell, and rubber stamped the word goddess. The mermaid was cut out of a leftover piece of mermaid fabric that I had from a fabric covered lampshade that I made awhile back. See photo below.
I bought this lamp because it had a  base that was scallop shaped, and could be filled . The lamp is filled with shells that I picked off the beaches of Florida. As you can see, I liked the mermaid fabric so much I also made a table topper with the material. Everytime I find mermaid material...I buy it! :-)

Hope you have an artful day.
