My take on this challenge is actually part of an on-going not-so-mini-album, I have working on since 3 years.
I made this album as part of a CCC3 challenge and each year, I add more pages to it. I like to experiment different techniques on each page, here I did watercoloring on the mermaid image (from Paper Nest Doll, nautical-mermaid-avery) with pearl watercolors:


1. add glitter paste to the splahes cutouts from Connie Crafty Cart:

2. Punch out sand-dollars and add sand texture paste:

3. Use these 2 liquid inks to add some teal to the background using a Hero Arts waves stencil:

And to the speciallty paper.


It is difficult to capture the pearlescence color of these watercolors.
I used a flower die to cut the rock out of a leftover paper from: 
this layout,

I added some sequins here and there to make pretend bubbles:

And some alge diecuts from speciallty paper included in this set.

ups I flipped this image:

The sand-dollar ins partially glued to add the picture bellow.

I tried to add layers and texture using the waves from the speciallty paper.


liquid glass (CTMH), Bazzil paper, Hero Stamps/die set, sequins, and much more.

Thank you for checking in and I appreciate your feedback and following.
Many blessings
