You are | Niki Rowland March 27, 2019 07:00

Hey Just Nick fans! Niki here and I have something a bit different from me to share today.  I have used the very lovely 'You Are' cut file from the store. It's new and is completely gorgeous, perfect for documenting my lovely babies.
 
I cut the cut file out of thick Mixed Media style white card. I left it as a whole on the cutting mat. I then applied lots of mixed media paint. Once it was dry I peeled everything off the cutting mat.
I used the backing piece as a template over my background and and carefully pieced each letter back into the gaps, all raised up on foam pads. I then carefully peeled away the backing paper to reveal the coloured letters beneath!
I added in a photo cluster to the right and a smaller embellishment cluster to the bottom left.
I've used a mixture of Cocoa Vanilla Studio collections for this layout, mostly Boys Rule and also a little but of Midnight. I matched the mixed media paints to the Boys Rule collection.
Thank you so much for joining me today for this slightly different style of layout from me. Give this technique a try, it was great fun!
Happy scrapping xxx
