Nathalie with you today with a new project that brings color and small details in a page to celebrate the small moments in life. I love having a large selection of cut files here in the Just Nick shop that can easily be combined into a page of your own.
To start, i added a bit of watercolor (Prima Marketing) to the background -since i wanted to create a very abstract floral background, i chose a shade of green for the background-. While it dried, the Doily Background was used to create the large cut out from white cardstock.
I chose to back the cut out using warm tone papers from Pink Paislee's Whimsical collection and some vellum. A bit of foam adhesive helps to bring some dimension to the cut out.
A few butterflies were also cut from the same patterned papers using the Butterfly Background 2 cut file. This time, i carefully highlighted just one of the detailed butterflies to create the cutting pattern in the Silhouette software. A bit of fussy cutting -just one of the wings' corners- was all that was needed to have a single image. I added the butterflies around the background making sure that they sit within the flower of its same color.
Once the picture was placed on the layout, the Here and Now cut file was used to create the title of this page. I welded the two words together, and cut them three times -2 from cardstock, 1 from patterned paper - so that they can be stack together.
I love how this turned out, especially when there are flowers and butterflies and i was able to sneak in a picture of my boy in the mix. Remember to stop by Just NIck Studio to check all the cut files used in this layout and the new ones being added each week.
If you have questions on how this came together, please do not hesitate to contact me!
