Little Mermaid with Deep Sea


Karen here with my second project using the Deep Sea collection.  When I saw the  Sea Shell gloss paper I knew I wanted to use this photo of Gracia when she was 5.  It isn’t a very clear photo as it was taken before the emergence of digital cameras so then you only had one chance at a photo and didn’t know if it was ok or not until you got it printed.

Little Mermaid Layout

For this layout I have used –  Pebble card stock,  Sea Shell gloss paper, Mermaid Scales foil paper, Deep Sea Dive paper, 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, Sticker Sheet and Collectables pack.

I started by trimming .25in from the top and one side of the Deep Sea Dive paper and adhered this to the Pebble card stock. I then cut out the shell from the Sea Shell gloss paper.  I cut some sections from Mermaid Scales foil paper.  I stuck these to the bottom of my page, with the scallops pointing upwards to look like waves.  Next I added the seashell, over the top of the Mermaid Scale sections.  To give my page more dimension I placed foam pads under each strip of Mermaid Scales, where they extended at either side of the shell.


I added the shell and seaweed stickers from the Sticker Sheet  either side of the shell, tucking the bottom of the stickers under the top strip of Mermaid Scales and overlapping the shell.

The little fish were ‘fussy cut’ from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and the larger ones and mermaids were from the Collectables pack.  Also from the Collectables pack were the little square phrase, seahorse scallop border and row of little fishes.

I cur around my photo as there were other little girls standing either side of Gracia and added this to my page with a piece of seaweed from the Collectables pack.


To finish my page I cut the title and wrote the journaling with my Silhouette machine onto a piece of paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.



Pop back later in the week to see what the other talented DT have been making with their Kaisercraft goodies this month xxx
