Hello You're Wonderful | Monique Liedtke January 21, 2020 07:00

Hello, it's Monique here today sharing a layout for which I used one of the brand new cut files called "Funky Mandala" and the Willow Lane collection from Maggie Holmes:

This is the Funky Mandala cut file:

I cut the Funky Mandala from smooth white cardstock and adhered different pieces of patterned paper behind each part and spattered some pink paint drops on it. I put the mandala aside to let it dry and proceeded to color the white background cardstock with some light blue watercolor paint and to add some spatter here as well. I cut 1.5 cm off the right and top sides and adhered the background paper on a sheet of dark blue patterned paper. Now I fastened my "Funky Mandala" on the background and added my photo and lots of fun embellishments: 

Of course I finished my page by adding machine stitching along the edges of my page, as well as some extra stitching here and there. I also stamped the date and some other fun words. 

I love fussy cutting and the papers in this Maggie Holmes collection were just perfect for this. I hand-cut the word "cute", the flowers with the leaves and some of the birds. 

I really love how this Funky Mandala turned out and hope you will give it a try too. Make sure to check out the JustNick store to see many more fun new cut files

Thank you so much for stopping by today! See you next time!
