Hi Creative Friends !!! I’m back today with a very colorful layout for the Paige Evans Design Team with the « Wonder » collection and her « Besties » cut file. I wanted a page with colors that wouldn’t go unnoticed so I used yellow and fuchsia.
I first used my Silhouette Cameo to the design and used some pattern papers to trace, cut and fill in the letters. Instead of backing the cut file, I glued it flat onto the background and then popped the letters up with 3D foam for more dimension. I used white cardstock for the background, which I coated with clear Gesso before adding a lot of Dark Blue Shimmerz ink to bring out the yellow and fuchsia even more.
I sprayed the blue colors on the background then added water and let the colors flow and mix to get different shades. Once dry I splashed white Gesso diluted with a little water. Once it was well dried I was able to glue the cut file and the letters. I distressed the edges of the letters for more texture and because I love it!
I layered crumpled tracing paper and different papers under my photo and I glued it with cardboard for more dimension above the cut file by inserting it a little under the letters. I added yellow and pink ink to each side of the photo because I found it was a bit lacking in color.
Then I decorated the whole thing with a lot of flowers (cutouts, die cuts, paper flowers). I also added rainbow and sentence stickers. I cut the « Hello Lovely » Die Cuts card and the butterfly that I added at my disposal as well as some golden Puffy hearts and a sticker banner. I finished with some golden ink splatter to tie it all together!
Here are some more close-ups:
Hope this inspires you for a future layout! I loved making this page my daughter has been asking me for for a long time with intense colors (and this collection is perfect for that!).
Be sure to watch my video of the process to see all the details:
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful day full of creativity!
See you soon…
