One of the most relaxing things I enjoy is creating sea-inspired crafts from items I find in nature. This has been a favorite past time of mine since I was a child growing up spending my summers at the beaches in New Jersey. I find the process of collecting and creating both calming and restorative. For as long as I can remember I have loved seashells and have always been fascinated by mermaids and the legends of lost sunken treasures. In my new Mermaid Sea Treasure Collection of soap and lotion dispensers, I have managed to combine all three. I created the sea glass look with spray paint in solid colors with an overlay of “sand” paint decorated with seashells and embellished my designs with jewel-like sparkly beads and sea glass. To protect the finish I sealed with a clear spray varnish. These dispensers can be used for both soap and lotion and are beautiful accent pieces for ocean themed decor and can be purchased in my SeaweedArt Etsy store.
