Kati Finds Nemo! Practical Scrappers Design Team -Acrylic Paint

Over at Practical Scrappers, the challenge for this week is using acrylic paint. For this layout, I used the paper bag/smoosh technique to paint a blue background on white cardstock. I used paper from DCWV Indian Summer paper stack for the rest of the background. Embellishments are from Life's a Beach. Seaweed is cut in regular and layers at 5" and 5 1/2" in light and dark green.......went over them with green dimensional paint. Glued the bottoms only so they would "flutter." Cut the fish border out at 2 1/2"....decorated with dimensional paint and glitter....separated....and hid them among the seawood.

 The waves are LAB's wave border.....covered with an acrylic glaze with blue glitter in it. Then I went around the crests of the waves with some irridescent blue and silver glitter paint. Glued the bottoms only to get dimension. Nemo is a fabric applique I found in a clearance bin. Title is green Thickers and Mickey Font (2 1/2")
