Birds Background Layout by Audrey Yeager


Sunday, February 18, 2018

Repeating elements on a page and backing cut files are my jam, so this layout by Design Team member Audrey Yeager knocks it out of the park!
As soon as I saw the Birds Background cut file I knew exactly what photo I was going to use! I have been saving it for the perfect supplies, and this cut file paired with the Pick-Me-Up collection is perfect!
I began by painting the background with some light blue acrylic paint and splattering with pink, yellow, and white mists.

Then I cut the Birds Background cut file using my Silhouette Cameo from white cardstock and cut out each bird separately. Amazingly, I only used ONE piece of patterned paper to back all the birds, Paper 21. Once they were all backed, I use aqua embroidery floss and made French knots for the eyes and stitched the beaks and feet with yellow floss.

I used very few embellishments, letting the birds stand out for themselves. Just a few frames cut from a paper in the 12x12 Paper Pad, and some Ephemera Die CutsPuffy Stickers, and sequins from the Haberdashery Multi-Pack.

I'm such a big animal lover, and the birdie in the pic is too cute, I bet Jane would agree with me that we need one :)
