I was inspired by the sketch at Creative Scrappers. I thought for awhile about what those circles could represent and went through my cut files looking for inspiration. But at the end of the day I thought emojis could work and I like how they turned out. They are paper pieced. I designed the pieces in Silhouette Studio and glued them on. Originally, I was going to use a white background paper but I'm glad I switched to black. However, I could've just had my machine cut the yellow faces if I had known.
The title is the lower case outline alpha file from Just Nick. I looked through the stash to find paper the same colour as my daughter's shirt. I found it in the Let's Be Mermaids kit. I think it is funny I buy it to use with my swimming pictures and here I break it open for an emoji layout.
I added some stitching and splatters to play along with the Mix It Up Monday challenge at Paper Issues.
