love this sunset. June 29, 2016 07:00

Hello, Diana here today.  I love when cuts, pattern papers, and pictures just come together how I envisioned them!  

When I saw this background cut I knew which picture I needed to use for this layout.  I also knew which new font I wanted to use as well!  For this layout I decided to cut my background cut in cream cardstock so that I could use some water color on it to mimic the sunset.  I decided to layer up underneath of my cut as well to provide some more interest. 

I wanted to give some tips on how I did my title.  I use a Silhouette for my cuts.  I opened the alpha file, I also opened a new file to create my title in.  From the original alpha file I copied, then pasted in my new file the letters I wanted to use and then welded them together.  By creating a new file this cuts down on the movement of your letters and you can create your title more quickly!

here is a closeup of my title; I also used water color on it as well:

Here are the cuts I used on this page:
