Hello Friends!  I have a 6x8 layout to share using the new Background 8 cut file.  I used the knife in the Silhouette Software, to only cut out 6x8 of the cut file to use as a stencil on my white cardstock background.

I used Altenew Paste through the stencil, then when it was dry, I added watercoloring on top to emphasize the cut file design.  To add more texture to my layout, I backed it with woodgrain pattern paper, added paint dots, stamped my title in various inks and stamps, and added stitching.

My favorite stitching I added were the French Knots.  I used twine so a bit thick, but you could use embroidery floss as well.  For my photo, I layered pattern paper, die cuts, chipboard, and puffy stickers to add texture with the layers, and direction with the leaves.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope this inspires you to try using paste, watercolors (or your water-based ink), and stitching with this Background 8 cut file!
