Fish(y) at Tag Tuesday

Hi everybody!
The theme this week is 'fish'.

My first thought was to make a fish-and-chips tag, but then I had a strange fishy dream Friday night which inspired this rather surreal picture for my tag. In my dream I was looking through windows and watching the people inside, who all seemed to be underwater, and there were fishes and various bits and bobs floating around it, like it was some giant aquarium. 
The background picture is from Gecko Galz, and I added the fish digitally. I printed it once on paper and once on transparent foil. I layered the pictures over each other, making sure that the images were not exactly aligned, which gives an unfocused look, as though you are looking through water. I added a fish and a shell 'outside', and mounted it onto some dark grey mirri-board before adding an eyelet for the ribbon and a fish charm.

  6. It's a dreamlike image, how clever to make it double-visioned so it looks as if it is underwater. If I were a fish, I would be frightened by the big violet face.
