 I was recently in the Common Grounds 2 swap and my partner (PilarFarmer) and I both love mermaids. She had a lot of the moveable paper dolls on her Pinterest so I thought I would give it a try. I made one and had so much fun coloring and embellishing her that I make a book of sorts for Pilar to do the same. I printed out sheets of the outline in both black and sepia outlines onto thick cardstock and taped them together.
 Here are the results! My doll was colored using Copic Markers then I painted over the tail with shimmering gold paint but I don't think the picture shows it very well.

 and here is the booklet I made her opened so you can see the pages inside.
