I'm a Mermaid - CraftOnline Creative Team Project

We are all moved and 90% unpacked so I got to scrapbook for the first time in months and it was so good to be creating the way I love most again.  I have had to edit this video a lot as there were long periods of indecisiveness as I was out of my usual flow, if that makes sense, but I am really happy with how this layout of my Granddaughter posing in a Mermaid cutout turned out.

Items used in this project
Bazzill Bling Cardstock Charming
Bazzill Bling Cardstock Her Majesty
Eyelet Outlet Shell Brads
Echo Park Mermaid Dreams Collection 
Poppy Crafts A5 paper pad Mermaid
Scrapaholics Chipboard Floating Mermaid
Scrapaholics Chipboard Mermaid Kisses
Poppy Crafts die Sea Shell
Poppy Crafts die Sea Horse
Poppy Crafts A4 Cardstock Yellow Pack
Stickmaster Glue Residue Eraser
I cut the shell die cuts with some Kaisercraft Cardstock in my stash, it is a old colour and no longer available.  I would suggest trying Kaisercraft Oatmeal and blending inks to get the result you want.
I coloured the shell die cuts with Distress Ink in Brushed Corduroy.  I coloured the Seahorse with Fossilized Amber Distress Ink.
I glued everything down with Helmar Acid Free Glue, Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive and some Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots were perfect for giving some lift and pop where needed.

I love how this layout turned out.  All the little bits that say I am a Mermaid were just perfect for telling the story of the photos and prompting my memory of it.
