Hello Justnick friends Rachel here, Today I have a pretty layout to share. I love this photo of my daughter in her hippie skirt and Doc Martins! I wanted a cut file that wasn't too busy but soft and pretty. How gorgeous is the Floral Lattice Background cut file!
I cut it in white card stock and resized it to a 10x10 inch cut. I then paper pieced the flowers and petals (I have used the new Pink Paislee, Paige Evans Whimsical collection). I adhered the Floral Lattice onto my white base paper with foam tape to create a 3D effect.
Note I paper pieced different colour leaves for visual interest. Paper piecing a floral cut with a patterned paper will avoid it looking 'flat' and too monotone.
I adhered my photo using wash tape strip choosing a bright colour to contrast against my white base paper. I tucked under the left side of my photo (which is 4x4 inch photo) a floral bunch die cut from the ephemera pack and added a die cut sentiment phrase.
This collection has a beautiful rub on pack, perfect to use on a white background. I added lots of the faux stitching rub ons around my page, phrases, tiny hearts and butterflies.
No splatters of black Color Shine on this layout because I wanted to keep it fresh and bright.
I didn't go overboard embellishing this layout, keeping lots of white space, allowing the cut file to be a stunning feature and then other elements to draw your eye to the photo.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by today and see you again soon.
