THANKFUL FOR THIS BOND | Nathalie DeSousa November 22, 2018 07:00
Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to all our American Friends!
Nathalie with you today with a new layout that celebrates the sweet and special bond between humans and pets. We love our baby so much, and he loves us just as much that i decided to pull a few of the beautiful JustNick studio cut files to create this new page.
I wanted something soft for the background, so i decided to hand stitch the Heart Strings Background with white thread, and then back the heart spaces with colorful hearts cut from the new Whimsical collection.
The curvature of the lines brings so much movement to the layout; and the space created with the stitching was the perfect spot to add some sentiments using the collection's rub-ons or stamped images -that correspond to respective heart color-.
To create the title of this page, the Gratitude cut file was used to cut the word 'Thankful' from white cardstock. This was propped on some foam adhesive onto the layout's background.
Once the picture was placed on the page, i used a few of the Whimsical collection flower ephemera to create clusters around the page. To bring more of the cool tones to the page (tried at best to tone block the clusters), I had to use the Stems 2 cut file to cut some extra leaves from white cardstock, These were then colored with watercolor so that they take the hues in the hearts.
This page is so full of texture and movement. The color of the hearts bring plenty of color and interest to this page,and i just love how it all works together! Remember to stop by JustNick Studio store to check all these cut files. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Have a blessed day!
