Under Sea Life aquarium layout (for BBTB2)

It's an altered cricut cut challenge at BBTB2 this week-alter the cut with paint, mod-podge, ink, or whatever you like.  I was making a layout for some pictures from the Shedd aquarium in Chicago, so I jazzed up my undersea critters from the Pack Your Bags cartridge with stickle here and there, plus mr. jellyfish is covered with liquid pearl to make him look all shiny and jelly-like.  I also cut some coral and other critters from Life as a Beach to add to my marine scene (and had to add some more stickle…can there ever be too much….?).  The title font is the sugar script font from Type Candy, my newest font obsession.  Do you ever get on a kick with a font and then can't stop using it?  That's me and Type Candy!

Pack Your Bags-aquarium, turtle, lobster, octopus
Life as a Beach-coral
Type Candy-sugar script font
Paper-CTMH solids
jumbo java and night sky Versamagic chalk ink for the edges
lots and lots of stickle plus white liquid pearl

There are a million ways to alter your cricut cuts and the design team over at BBTB2 have some to show you!  We hope you will link up a project and fun playing along!
