Darling It's Better Down Where It's Wetter......

Hello crafty friends! Today I would like to share my inspiration for the Leinzlove Tear Bear Challenge Blog (

The theme this month is water, so I created this double page "Under the Sea" layout to share with you all today.  My adorable little mermaids along with the guppies and some of the corals are from a cut file from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs entitled, Mermaid Buddies Collection. The other sea life and corals shown are from Cricut Design Space. I used a mixture of both Bazzill and ReCollections card stock to create my layout. I uploaded all my cut files to my Cricut Design Space, sized them accordingly and cut them out using my Cricut Explore.  Once all pieces were cut, I then used my Color Box Chalk Inks to shade them and added highlights using a white Gelly Roll Pen. I also added some additional rhinestone gems and stickles to some of the pieces for added texture and definition.

I hope that you enjoyed today's project. Feel free to come back soon and visit again for some more inspiration and crafty ideas.
