HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!!

 Nathalie with you today, bringing you the first project of 2018  (can you believe it is a New Year already!).  

 

 

I have had this picture in my scrapbook file for a while waiting for the right cut file, and when i saw the new Magic Carpet Background, the idea popped into my head.

 

 

 

To create this background, I isolated only the full images of the cut file, and then copy them in a tile formation.   Using the Silhouette software,  the image was moved until it matched the angle of the picture, and then set to cut from white cardstock.

 

 

Each image was then backed by a different paper from the Paige Evans' "Turn The Page" collection (one of  my fave collections from 2017!).  Using a bone folder, the centers of the motifs were slightly creased as to create the dimension in the background.

 

 

Just a few embellishments were needed to complement and frame the picture.   I wanted the picture to balance the background, so I chose to keep it Black and White so that it stands out from the colorful background.

 

 

 

The title of this page was created using the  "Girl Power"  and  "Lower Case Alpha" cut files from papers from the collection.   Each letter and word was cut twice, and glued together, a bit of foam adhesive adds the dimension to the word "sweet".

 

 

I hope this serves as inspiration for the start of a new year!  Stop by the Just Nick Studio store to check these and all the cut file designs available.  

Remember i am a comment away if you have questions on how this came together. 

 

See you all soon!
