   Hello, my friends!

It’s Nancy here with you 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:

Ocean themed art journal page using Life is the Bubbles SVG Cut File with Cricut

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:
Beach Sea Shells Monogram Frame SVG File;
Life is the Bubbles SVG Cut File Title

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 then 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)

Now…here’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.
Just use your favorite adhesive for this.

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!
