Colorful Watercolor Polygon! | Morgan Langley November 16, 2017 07:00

     Hey crafty friends! Today I am sharing a colorful layout I created using the "Shattered Polygon" cut file! This cut file can be used in so many different ways so it is perfect! 
      I cut the file from a piece of paper from the "Oh my Heart" Pink Paislee collection and backed it onto a piece of white card stock. Then I used the negatives from the file and cut pieces of paper paper to fill in the polygon. 
     I wanted to make my background to be fun, so I extended some of the sections into the background by choosing a coordinating color and water coloring an extension of that section going off the page. Once it dried, I went in with that same color and did some splatters for added texture. On the sections I didn't water color in, I added splatters with the coordinating color. 
    To add even more texture I used some light blue vellum, cut three of the different shapes inside the cut file, added in seed beads and sequins, and then sewed it onto the layout. 
     I also added some stamping onto different sections of the polygon. I did some different fonts of ampersands, little V's for Violet's name, numbers, and some flowers.
     I love how this layout turned out and how colorful it is! Make sure to follow Just Nick and myself @morewithmorganl on Instagram for more crafty posts! Thank you for stopping by! 

Happiness in Circles! | Morgan Langley August 06, 2017 07:00

Hello friends! Today I am kicking off circles week on the Just Nick blog using the "Dreamcatcher Background 1". I love the sections in this file and I knew I wanted to add some hand stitching!

I started by backing the cut file with papers from the new Maggie Holmes collection "Carousel". Then I stitched some of the sections using corresponding colors and some using plain white embroidery floss. 

I embellished using the puffy stickers from the collection as well as those gold glitter stars from the chipboard sticker sheet. I fussy cut two kites from the collection and layered them with some tangled thread. My title came from the ephemera pack and I love how it all came together!

I added some light pink splatters and added the border with my sewing machine! I used light blue thread and set my machine to do a scallop stitch! 

This layout was so fun to make and I love the look of the different sections with the Dreamcatcher Background file! Thank you for stopping by! 


Summer Circle Background Layout! | Morgan Langley July 18, 2017 07:00

     Hello friends! It is Morgan here and I am excited to be sharing my layout I created using the "In the deep end background". This file was so easy and fun to work with!  

     I cut the file on white card stock first and then taking papers from the 6x6 "Oh My Heart" collection I cut small pieces to fit into the squares around each circle as well as the middle piece. I grouped all the pink patterns together, all the greens together, etc. Then I laid out the file on my page and marked where each colored circle was for my splatter paint. I matched the splatter paint with the color of circle that would be on top.

 

     Next I fussy cut the larger flowers from the 12x12 "Oh my Heart" paper pad and layered them behind the circles still matching the colors. I added smaller flowers with bunched thread and sequins into the center of some of the smaller circles. 

     I cut three photos into circles to fit inside the cut file and love how they flow into the layout. I used my type writer for my journaling about this summer day at my grandparents house in Ohio. 

     Thank you for reading about my crafty process! I hope you try and incorporate this file into one of your own beautiful creations!
