Matariki |In the Deep End Background | Michelle Whorwood July 11, 2017 07:00 1 Comment

Hi, Michelle Whorwood here!  I am super excited to be back on board with the Just Nick Design Team for a second term.  The Just Nick cut files are just my favourite cut files to work with and today I have another layout featuring two more cut files from store.  

I really enjoy creating layouts with circle cut files as they are super fun to create and I enjoy embellishing in and around the circle designs.  Using a cut file such as the new cut file in store in the In The Deep End Background makes creating easy as you have a design to work with already. When I saw this in store I couldn't want to use it!  I decided to cut it out on some yellow cardstock for a change from white and then I backed several of the circles with patterned papers.  I then added my photos of my youngest daughter on a recent school trip to celebrate Matariki here in New Zealand. 

I kept round elements by adding in some more circle embellishments within the circles of the cut file themselves and then also added some embellishments on and around my title and photos.

I cut my title out of patterned paper using the Handcut Letters cut file which is a fun alpha set which I have outlined in black pen on my layout to highlight it more on my busy page. I then added a couple of hearts with foam dots for more fun and interest.

I finished off my layout with some hand cut scalloped borders to frame the top and bottom of my page and some splatters of paint and mist.  I hope you have enjoyed my fun circle style layout.  Do you enjoy creating with circles as much as I do?
