Awesome Girl - Cathy Martin September 25, 2017 07:00

Hi everyone, it's my turn up on the blog today and I'm continuing to work with the All Boy cut file!  On my last blog post I used several of the words that came with the cut file, but so as to not waste a single bit of paper I added the word "awesome" before I sent the file through my Silhouette.  I didn't know what I would end up doing with it, but I knew that since it was something I could use for almost any layout I decided to cut it.  I'm so glad I did, because I used it for this layout!  A layout that is definitely All Girl :) 

I backed the cut file with bright, bold and fun papers from my stash ( I have some drawers of papers that I keep specifically for the purpose of backing cut files)  and then I chopped the word in half so it would fit on my page better, since the background paper I had chosen had an illustration in the lower left hand side.  I decided to go for a funky, whimsical, and slightly minimalistic feel, and I experimented with my photo by cutting out my daughter from the background.  This is a new technique for me, though I know it's been around for quite awhile.  I am super happy with the results!

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look-see today!  You can also check out my Youtube channel to see my process video too!
