My submissions for PYT round 3

Here is my submission for intermediate group 3. It blends a lot more than I thought it would but I wanted to try a technique I hadn't tried before. It is much simpler than what I regularly do but that also is part of the design. The colors will be different for each one. You can't see it very good, but on this background paper (the yellow one) and of course on the ones to follow, there are squiggly accent lines around the edges, which again, I had not done before. The font is Pooh, which I'm loving. And the cooking stickers are We R Memory Keepers embossed. I don't use a lot of stickers but really love this line. Hope you like! Oh, and please ignore the mess. I seriously am going to start cleaning it tonight!

This is my submission for the advanced group. It was my first try at an advanced LO. It turned out "okay" but not as nice as the idea in my head! This is also the least pretty of them as this was kinda my practice page (don't worry.. I'm keeping it..LOL). The theme is aquarium and the title is "Ocean Wonders." Most of the paper is DCWV and the rest I have no idea. MS glitter on the sand dollar and kaiser pearls in the oyster. Paper piercing includes seafoam eyelets from MM, yellow fasteners, and the hand sewn jellyfish with MS vellum. The photo mats were distressed (quite stress relieving actually) and then dyed in MM naked line tropical dyes in hibiscus (though they turned out more pink to me). You can't really see the octopus too good but I used googly eyes (LOVE GOOGLY EYES!!) and little adhesive gems on the tentacles with pearl paint accents up the arms. With the sea horses, I hand painted bubbles for the small sea horse and for the big one I debossed a few bubbles and then added MM page pebbles for some as well. As for cuts: Zooballoo was used for the title and the octupus. Every other cut is from Dreams Come True. Never thought I would need a licensed cartbut that thing has TONS of cute extras! And as a side note, several things on the page are accented with pearl paint. I love pearl paint.
