Let Your Light Shine | Nathalie DeSousa July 11, 2019 07:00

Hello everyone!

Nathalie with you today and so excited to continue for another term as part of the JustNick studio DT  and get to work with Nicole's beautiful designs.   I was born and raised in Ecuador, but call Toronto home for over half my life.  My biggest blessing are my husband, two teenagers and our Boston Terrier baby.   My love for paper crafting was grown along with me, and i am so happy i get to share a part of it with you all.  Now, let me show you what i have created for today:

 

 

For this page , i chose the Let Your Light Shine and Leafy Florals (soon to be released) to document a recent selfie.   

 

 

It all started with a bit of mixed media,   some Vicki Boutin Rose Gold glaze pushed through a Kaisercraft stencil, on  one of the new papers from the Indigo and Ivy collection from Pink Paislee.

 

 

 

While the background dried, i used the soon-to-be-released Leafy Florals cut file to cut a few of the images out of white cardstock.   These would be used as accents and layers behind the picture and paper layers.

 

 

 

For the title of this page, i chose the Let Your Light Shine cut file. This was cut twice from white cardstock, the cut outs were then attached to each other with a bit of foam adhesive in between, then glued to the background.  A few embellishments from the Indigo & Ivy collection were added to the page, as well as a few lines of journal.

 

 

I hope this has inspired you to check all the designs at the JustNick studio shop.  There are always new designs being added to the store.   If you have questions on how this came together, please do not hesitate to contact me!
