Hi! Niki back with you today with another bright and summery layout I've created using the 'Summer' cut file from the store.
For my layout I have used the SUMMER word file but was also totally inspired by the Sunshine sun-burst file within this set too. Instead of cutting it, I drew a sunburst onto my white card and coloured it in using yellow and orange water colour paint. This ended up being the basis of my layout.
I cut the word SUMMER on my Silhouette from white card, and backfilled it with as many bright, bold and busy patterns as I could - I do love a bright layout!
I have put together a process video which shows how I made it,

I added flicks of water colour paint to my starburst and once dry, added faux stitching with a grey pen. I had two reasons for this - first, that the starburst looked like it needed a little extra definition, and second, that my pencil lines were really showing through the yellow paint!
I raised my title on foam pads and used stickers from the Summer Dreams sticker sheet to add embellishments to my layout. I also used a number of other embellishments including washi tape stickers, chipboard words and phrases, sequins and enamel dots.
I'm really happy with how my layout turned out. Some of my favourite cut files to use are open-alphabet fonts so the word SUMMER from the Summer cut file set was perfect for me.
Happy scrapping xx
