September Guest Designer

I am up on the Core'dinations blog with my last September Guest Design layout. But don't worry, I'll be back again for 2 more months of Core projects! AND then some around here anyway! I ♥ using Core! This last September layout was a lot of fun because it was a bit of work. I am normally pretty simple in my scrapping but this was kind of technique-y (for me anyway!).
I started with a piece of Core'dinations cardstock and cut 4 fish out with my Cameo in a jumping arc. I took the cut out fish and embossed them with my Cuttlebug. I lightly sanded the embossed fish. Next I swiped Tim Holtz embossing ink over them and poured thick UTEE on top. I heat embossed that and once cooled and dried, I popped those worked over fish up with Therm O Web 3D Zots:
It kind of gives them a scaly and wet look, dontcha think? I used the Cameo cut out fish eyes as bubbles. Simply sanded and glued down for a tone on tone look:
The patterned paper and stickers are by Echo Park. Some Thickers by American Crafts and mini alphas from Jillibean Soup. And 2 of my favorite pics of the kids in the pool. I think our swim season is over :( It is still hot during the day but at night it cools down enough that the pool is a bit too chilly. Oh well, there's always next year! Have a great weekend.
