Rose Blossom Blog Hop - You Are Here Cricut Card

Welcome to the Rose Blossom Blog Hop! Come follow Close To My Heart consultants from the Rose Blossom team as we share our creations made using the new You Are Here Cricut cartridge! You Are Here is filled with 700 travel-themed images, and the collection comes with 3 coordinating stamp sets and a 24-pack of cardstock.

If you came here from Marg's amazing blog, you are on the right path. If you get lost along the way, come back here and go to the bottom of the page for the blog hop list.

Inspiration: Sometimes, when I'm not sure what I want to do with a cartridge, I'll flip through the images and see if something catches my eye. As soon as I saw that turtle, I knew I wanted to make a mosaic with him.

Techniques: Besides adding scrap paper to the back of the turtle image to create a mosaic, I also did a watercolor wash of the background to make it feel like the ocean. 

You can get the You Are Here collection (both physical and digital) on my website.

Now it's time for you to keep moving on the hop.  Head on over to Ginger's lovely blog and see her artwork!

I love sea turtles so much, and you have really chosen great paper to make this one. That glitter paper makes it look like a turtle sparkling in the sea. I love it!

That's the prettiest sea turtle I've ever seen! Your watercolor background is perfect. Thanks for the inspiration!
