Keepin' it Real Layout by Zsoka Marko

Zsoka Marko has such an eye for fresh color palettes! Today's layout is the perfect example of this talent.

Hey there crafty friends, Zsoka here with you today with a new layout I've created for the Paige Evans + Silhouette Design Team. I've picked the Diamond Background cut file and a mixture of Paige's five collections: Pick-Me-UpTurn the PageOh My HeartTake Me Away, and  Fancy Free.
First I modified the cut file in Silhouette Studio - I made it smaller, duplicated it, and welded the two together to get this vertical design. I cut the design from white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo which I then adhered to the patterned paper I chose for my background. Then I went through Paige's collections and searched for yellow, green, and blue patterned papers to create an ombre look.
My laziness got the best of me and instead of cutting the small diamond shapes with my Cameo, I hand cut them. I figured it would be quicker because I had many different papers and it's always so time consuming to place several scraps in the right spot on the Silhouette mat. But if that's easier for you, by all means, do it that way! I used foam adhesive to pop up each small diamond to create dimension. Then I added a bunch of things behind my photo: tags, die cuts, journaling spots - just to add some color. I kept to the color scheme though and went from yellow to blue from top to bottom.
I attached some chipboard, puffy and cardstock stickers to the photo plus a cute little clip. I then pulled out small embellies that matched in color and glued them down in various spots on the diamonds. I scattered coordinating color enamel dots around the page. For title I used a Thickers phrase from the Take Me Away collection. I really love the pearl finish on it as well as the font - Paige, do you want to add more of these in future collections?! Pretty please? To finish off my page, I added some navy shimmer spray mist and wrote up my journaling. Done!
I hope you like this page and I could inspire you in one way or the other! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
