Journal 1: Beauty Goes Deep

I saw that the prompt over at Simon Says Monday Challenge was Mixed Media and guess who had been thinking about her journal recently?  This girl!

I had a foiled alcohol ink Yupo panel I had made when crafting with some IG friends already on hand.  It reminded me of seaweed so I fussy cut that out and adhered it to my page. Next I airbrushed coral, and later the grit paste after it had dried-ish. The crab is cut from a leftover piece from an alcohol inked panel.

You can see how the rest was put together with the watercolored image, additional diecut pieces, and embossed sentiment.

I'm also entering this in Allsorts #627 Magical Worlds.
