Amy back today with a 12x12 layout created with this month's kit and using a cutfile from the Silhouette studio store. I have used a background cardstock paper that contrasted with the kit.
I started by painting the word Hope from in the kit, using blue Dylusions paint. I painted it several times to ensure an even coat.
While this dried I played with the cut file. I backed some sections with some of the patterned paper in this month's kit, leaving a space free to create a shaker pocket. To add some texture I put the tule ribbon from the kit to the lower section of the cutfile as if there was a ribbon at the bottom of the cake.
I then decided that the photo needed some pop so I added several layers of left over pieces of patterened paper I had from the kit to give the photo some interest and extra colour. I did some ripped edges for some extra texture.
So then the pretty stuff begins and I play with the embellishments. I did not need alot as the cut file and large title took up lots of space on the page, but I did add some embellishments along the right side to balance that side off against the photo.
Thanks so much for looking and hope to see you next month.
