SEA TURTLES – April 30, 2010 – South Padre Island, Texas

JOURNALING: Ted visited us from April 29 to May 2. We visited Sea Turtles, Inc who care for the Kemp’s Ridley Sea turtle. Pictured here is Gerry, a 30 year old Atlantic Green Sea turtle, who can weight up to 600 pounds.

SUPPLIES USED: Font: Lucida Calligraphy, Roam paper by K&Co, Wild Raspberry borders by K&Co, Cricut Expression, Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL), shell shape svg

TECHNIQUE TIP: The font of Lucida Calligraphy is one of my favorites so I wanted to use it in larger size for the title of this layout. As with many fonts, one of the issues is that it is quite skinny and my Cricut doesn’t always handle it too well. I decided to weld together the letter using my SCAL software and that made the letters stand up well to the cutting. A little bit of black ink in places and I have the perfect title.
