Everyday....... by Rachel Lowe July 13, 2018 07:30
Hello Justnick friends!
I am so thrilled to be staying on for another term with Justnick and sharing my creations with you!
So here is my first layout of this term.
As most of you know I LOVE background cut files, they add so much texture and visual impact to a layout and I Love white on white even more!
And this is my chosen cut file.
I re sized the quilted circle background cut file to 10x10 inches. My trick to ensure my white on white cut files stand out, I cut two and glue one on top of the other. It really is worth the extra piece of paper for the over all effect.
I have used Turn the Page collection by Paige Evans. I knew I wanted to create a self motivational layout or 'notes to self' as I call it so firstly I cut some quotes from one of the papers and my layout went from there.
I have only paper pieced five of the squares as to avoid my page becoming too 'busy'.
I matted my cut file on several papers, cutting them larger each piece until my layout was 12x12 inches. I then added machine stitching borders around each paper piece.
I embellished each of the quotes to make a little feature of each.
I matted my photo on a and agin added some machine sewing around the edge. I added a quote sticker under my photo which I attached with foam tape to add more height to my layout. I then attached my main title 'everyday' attaching slightly over my photo.
To finish off my layout I fussy cut some butterflies from one of the papers and then attached to my layout in a circular fashion.
And there you have it one textured and pretty layout! And one I will need to revisit and remind my self of the importance of goals, dreams and never taking this wonderful life for granted!
Thank you for stopping by today and having a look. See you again soon!
