Painted Cut Files and Being Thankful! November 25, 2016 07:00

Hello everyone!  This week we are focusing on everything that we are thankful for.  I am thankful that I get to be a part of this amazing team and use all these incredible cut files!  :)

 

Today I am sharing a page about family using the Mandala Background 1 and Many Thanks cut files:

Many Thanks

Mandala Background 1

 

And here is my page. Along with the cut files, I used lots of papers and bit from the Pink Paislee Cedar Lane and Memorandum collections.

 

I thought that the Mandala patterns looked like cabbages or artichokes, so I painted them a plum color in the center and a greyish green around the edges.

 

I also used the Leaves 3 cut file to cut some leaves out of moss green paper and I stitched down the middle of each leaf.

For my embellishment clusters, I added in some mustard yellow, teal, and a dark azure to compliment the plum and moss colors.  I tried to make sure that each of my clusters had all the colors.

Finally, I used a dark woodgrain paper for a layer behind my photo and for the "Be Thankful" title.

Hope you have an Thanksgiving weekend!
