Hi everyone! Donna here to share with you my newest page using Just Nick Studio cut files

 

First thing I did was brush several shades of purple, lavender and blue on the background (gelatos). After the surface has dried, I brushed gel medium all over the background. I placed the Fancy Filigree background cut file to the wet gel medium and brushed some more gel medium on the cut file

For more texture, I used a stencil and whipped spackle after the gel medium dried. Using the shapes from the cut file as template, I traced this over different patterned papers and placed them in random spaces.

Before placing the photo, I gathered lots of light pink thread and adhered it under the photo. Then clustered little bits of ephemera pieces to the right side of the photo

I used different shades of Faber Castell PITT pastel pencils to darken spaces of the cut file background and doodled around the pieces of patterned papers with black pen to make it stand out.

I had a lot of fun making this page. Would you try this kind of background technique on your next layout? Let me know when you do!

I used Clique Kits May kit "Northern Lights" featuring Atwell collection by Fancy Pants Designs

Cut file used: Fancy Filigree Background

Thanks for dropping by!

Happy crafting,
