Neptune's Catch ("Swirlydoo Challenge")
I found a new product to experiment with...fusible web. It turns out that this product is very much like the sewing product we use to make collars on blouses/shirts. In this case, I used it to create the mermaid's body and sprinkled two different colors of embossing powders on the fusible web and applied the heat gun to it and watched the magic produced by the embossing crystals. I also used it on the large circle and applied beads, embossing powder and glitter. But, the best part was making her tail out of a Maya Road chipboard wing and embossing powders. The sea shell chipboards are from Dusty Attic, and I thoroughly enjoyed embellishing these with glimmer mist, glitter and embossing powders. The inspiration of this layout came from two Swirlydoo members in which I followed in a Round Robin challenge.
