Hi y'all! I know I've been gone a long long time, but here's a project I've been working on this last month. I started it a long time ago and am probably finished with it. I was going to keep adding on to it until my mom's birthday, but I'm sort of out of room to add things haha. I think.... Smiley Anyway, here it is.

The whole thing:


Sides:










I didn't have internet when I did the whale so I made it generic


Some in progress pics:

A few extreme closeups

The electric eel glows in the dark!!! (so do the ghost shrimp)

Oh yeah, so does the spikey green plant!


I always put an oyster with a pearl on my mom's projects.


I love the brain coral and the little clownfish took hours.


LOVE the purple coral, and the red and white coral is pretty in person.


I hope she likes it. Smiley

SO pretty! I adore all of the details. The oyster with a pearl thing is such a cool tradition. I wish I had the patience to make something like this!

Thanks y'all! I love it too, this is one project that I didn't start to hate halfway through. Haha. I guess the 50+ hours I put into it were worth it.  Wink

The reddish flattish reef and the texture on the whale is especially lovely, but it's all amazing.
