Art Journal Fun with Printable Cuttable Creatables

  Hello, my friends!

I'm excited to be sharing my first post for Printable Cuttable Creatables!

Today I'm sharing a tutorial on how I put this art journal page together,
using some great cut files from the shop! 

Here's my page:

Here's how I made it:

I began by sprinkling some watercolor powders onto my art journal page.
I spritzed it with water, until I had the look I wanted.
I then set it aside to dry.

I then went to Cricut Design Space and uploaded:

On my canvas in CDS, I inserted the Title into the Frame,
and sized it to fit on my journal page.

I then used the print/cut feature to cut out my design.

Now I come back to my colored journal page.
It's important that the journal page be completely dry before adding the cut file.
Otherwise things won't stick properly.
Isn't that sparkle pretty? :o)'s a trick to make the positioning of the cut file very simple.
I remove my paper from the mat, 
leaving the cut design in place on the mat.

I position the paper in place on my journal page,
exactly where I want to add the design.

Then it's as simple as putting a puzzle together.
I take a piece of the design off of my mat,
and adhere it in place on my journal page.
I like to use my ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever,
along with the No-Clog Writing Cap.

Here's my page with the design perfectly positioned!

 I added a nice coat of glossy accents to each of the bubbles.
It adds some lovely shine to go with all the background sparkle.

Finally, I added some sequins in a variety of colors!

I had so much fun creating this page!
Don't forget to consider other ways to use the fun files from
Printable Cuttable Creatables!
They offer endless possibilities!

I love this! I got a Cricut two years ago from my son for Christmas and I am just starting to learn how to use it.
