No Rain No Rainbows August 09, 2016 05:46

Hey everyone, it's Cathy, and I'm back with another layout!  This time I decided to use two cut files for my layout, the first one is No Rain No Rainbows, and the second is the Confetti background.  I wanted to created a rainfall effect on my background and the Confetti background did the job perfectly!  I backed the cut file with a piece of multi-colour paper and I really love the effect.  It almost looks like a shower of jellybeans!  For my title I used the Rainbow cut file and painted it a variety of colours using my watercolours.  I then added white and black splatters and outlined the file to really make it pop off the page!  I kept the embellishments minimal since I didn't want to compete with my awesome title and rain effect!  I love how bright and cheery this layout turned out and I am super excited to see what other cut file combinations I can come up with using the Just Nick files!  Have an awesome day!

Here are the cut files used for this project!

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to check out my process video!

Hey Everyone!

Today I am sharing a page utilizing a super fun background cut file. Typically, I like to utilize the negative cut and back it with some patterned paper. But, I've been on a rainbow kick and I've also been loving texture and things not perfectly adhered down to other things. So, I busted out my watercolors and had a little fun.

Here is the page I created using a recent cut file for March:

Rainbow! ROYGBV! This cut file was perfect to execute the design I had in my head. And it was super easy to put it all together. After cutting, I simply painted each strip. After drying, I applied adhesive to only the flowery parts. The ends stick up and I kind of dig it. 

Then, I dug out my bling and enamel dots to help seal the deal with the rainbow vibe. Of course, I threw in some other elements to help ground the design and balance the colors. Neutrals are always a necessity for that kind of thing. 

In the end, I really wanted the cut file and colors to shine. 

Here are a few more close-ups:

 

Thanks for swinging by today!
