Hi Creative Friends!!! I’m happy to see you today with a new layout for Paige Evans’ design team. To make this layout I used his collection « Go The Scenic Route » and his cut file « January ».
I decided this year to make pages with each month of the year that will serve as a spacer to store my pages in the binders. Each month will have a different theme (January=winter, February = love, March = spring, Ets…). And here is the first month:
To begin with, I coated a white cardstock with clear Gesso to prepare it for inks. I then cut the cut file with my Silhouette Cameo in a white cardstock and filled it with the 2×2 Pattern Swatches Pad from the collection and also from the previous ones, making a combo of blue/purple color.
I glued the cut file with 3D foam and inserted my photos underneath by overlapping them. I then cut several Mandala in paper n°10. I then inserted these Mandala under the photos but also on each side and towards the top and bottom of my page. I found these Mandala perfect for a winter effect.
I inserted arabesques in the Mandala to bring light and movement. These are Sizzix Thinlits 664176 by Tim Holtz. I cut several birds out of paper #15 and scattered them everywhere! I also added the word « Welcome » made with the Puffy Word Stickers of the collection that I stuck in the center of the cut on a Die Cuts tag of the collection too.
I ended up adding Shimmerz Slow Ocean and Tickle Me Turquoise inks all around my layout by alternating colors and creating depth. I added some Jewels Essential by PinkFresh Studio and splashed white paint to bring light and harmonize everything and black ink to bring contrast.

I hope this layout inspires you this weekend! I had fun editing it and loved playing with the shades of colors.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful weekend filled with creativity!
See you soon…
