This was the very first project I made using the Artistry cartridge! It is hard to believe that it has been almost an entire year since this great cartridge was released! Since then, I have made over seventy projects using this cartridge. That is a lot of projects made using a cartridge, y'all!
I made the water by taking a rectangle and the mustache border and slicing off the top of the square. It worked perfectly! For the sand, I welded 3 circles together and trimmed them down to fit in the square. The sign that this octopus is so generously holding for me, was made by using a word bubble and a rectangle. I welded them together and voila! Then I sliced the sentiment into the sign. The font is from this cartridge. I will have a video about the font soon!
