Is a Mermaid a Fish?


at Art Journal Journey.

Our host for this month is 

Mia from Craftartista,

the theme she is challenging us with is....


you will find all the information  about the theme and  our rules here

This journal page has a stencil and mop up background

I also used some die cuts of the crab and mermaid before adding  computer

generated fish images and the words

A photo  before I got adding  to many fish,

 I do wonder about mermaids.....are they fish?

 what language would they speak?

and could even imagine them in various situations.

 Here it would be Heidi thanking Henry the crab for looking  after her fish.

or possibly

Henry its bed time for the fish and they cannot play catch  this late as the fishermen will be about soon.

We hope you will enjoy this theme  and look forward to seeing  your journal pages.


  1. What a fun and clever take on Mia's theme, Yvonne. I was really impressed with the story you told of Henry taking care of Heidi's fish for her. I also enjoyed seeing a mermaid that wasn't exactly traditional. This is a rare and fun entry and a great first entry for Mia's theme at Art Journal Journey.

  2. Nice question. I'd say no but why can't she be included with fish? Nice page for June and our new challenge at AJJ. I hope you have a wonderful month and all goes well. Hugs-Erika

  3. I'm sure Heidi and Henry are great friends because she is definitely half fish - I may well have her other half on my page! I really love seeing how you digitally alter your original page. Hugs, Chrisx

  4. I absolutely love your post, Yvonne! Your page is absolutely beautiful! And your examples of Henry and Heidi's possible situations and so clever! Thanks!! Sharon

  5. A gorgeous page Yvonne! I love the mermaid!

  6. A great page Yvonne and I'm sure Heidi and Henry will get those fish to bed, such fun!

  7. I love the way you have explained the story behind your painting. I think it is definitely the latter.
    Love your mermaid, is it Art by Marlene? A gorgeous shade for the whole page and lovely fish and crab.
