altered jar with fish and mermaid inside, top view
altered jar with fish and mermaid inside, side view

This is my second try at making the altered jar with the theme A Child’s Play Thing. This time, I went for an underwater scene complete with mermaid and jumping fish.

For the top of the jar, I glued in place a picture of a puppy and a butterfly. True, these images don’t really match the theme but the colors worked beautifully.

I had some really nice ribbon with flowers on it. I glued that around the border edges of the jar top.

The jumping fish don’t really show up well in the picture, but they are sequins type things. I attached them to the top of the jar using a mobile type decoration made from twisted wire and buttons.  In truth, they are hanging fish not jumping fish, but the wires are not clearly visible.

The mermaid is Microsoft Office Clip Art.

I made waves at the bottom using vellum over scrapbook paper, trimmed with white gesso to make white caps.

You can’t really see this from the pictures, but in real life, the fish swap back and forth when you move the jar. This gives the impression that the mermaid is swimming among fish.

It was a fun project to do.  Altered art is among my favorite things.
