Splash Layout using Cricut Imagine

I am very happy right now!  First, I did the most recent updates to my Gypsy and my Imagine today.  They both went flawlessly.  While I did not cut from my Gypsy to my Imagine, I did make this entire layout with just my Imagine!  I used the Imagine More cart and the Create a Critter cart.

First, I printed the entire sheet of background paper you see here.  Here is a picture of it while it was printing!  I had the overspray set to medium and my mat didn't get too inked up so that is wonderful!  (I was a little worried.)

I cut the Splash phrase from Create a Critter phrase feature and flood filled it with colors from Imagine More.

I added a little bit of Stickles to liven it up and used dimensionals to give it layer.

I cut the circles at a variety of sizes from the default images on the Imagine.  I covered them with Glossy Accents to make them shine.  (They are still wet in this picture so they will turn out better in the morning.)

Lastly, I cut the duck from the default images in the Imagine and flood filled it with a pattern from the Imagine. I added stickles to give it a wing and a pretty beak, along with a Peechy Keen Stamp for the eye and nose notch.

The mats that my photos are on are also from Create a Critter, filled with a matching color from Imagine More.  I am very happy that we can now print an entire page of pattern with the Imagine!  It looks great, not like I printed it but like I bought it.  That is wonderful.  Thanks for looking!
