Die Cuts: Seagull Adventurers w/ Marianne Design

 This took me, possibly, too long to finish, but I am happy with how it came out. The stencil for the boat from Marianne Design turned out to be a bit more complicated than I expected. The two tiny triangle in the back are difficult to sort out. I tried tracing and cutting as usual, but it was sooo tiny. So instead I decided to make separate layers for "front" and "back" of the boat as if it were a 3D object.

When I decided on the seagulls, which I honestly thought were puffins before I bought the set, I was a little unsure that I was making them properly. Not because they were hard to put together, but I felt that somehow my seagulls were not as cute as I saw in the examples. That being said, once it was all together I think they're perfectly cute enough.

I went to find a blue paper to make sky for my boat to have a backdrop and I found this paper on the other side. It looked like a sunset! I didn't want to make it circular as I'd originally planned since the paper was so pretty, so perhaps the square of paper is a little awkward with the boat coming off it, but I just liked that paper too much.
