I made a layout just for fun using Truly Grateful and my new Unicorn cut file!

Last weekend I was feeling super unmotivated, no mojo, creativity kaput. Usually when that happens I switch gears to mini albums and I had pulled out everything to start my October 2018 mini album when BAM. Mojo gone. So I did some computer work, wrote blog posts, and knocked other things off my to-do list. Somewhere in between all of that I cut this Unicorn cut file from white cardstock with a Silhouette Cameo 3.

After I cut out the unicorn I asked Jane to go put on some unicorn stuff. She did and I snapped a few photos. Please tell me I'm not the only one who takes pictures of my kids solely to match cut files lol! I had about an hour before I needed to be at the church for an activity and I already had an idea of what I wanted to do with this cut file. So I just sat down at my desk, backed the horn with gold glitter paper and the ears with a couple Truly Grateful papers then plopped on a bunch of the Floral Die Cuts. From there the creative juices started flowing again. That's all it took! Just simply sitting down and starting, pushing around paper and stickers.

I printed off the photo of Jane snapped only hours earlier and tucked it into the flowers. I chose the dark purple B-side of Paper 04 for my background. Before adding the unicorn on top I did some stitching & mixed media. I drew lines connecting to a point behind the unicorn with a white pen and then used a sewing machine to stitch over the lines using gold thread first and then light purple thread. This creates a fun, textured background drawing the eye into the main focal point.

Then I splashed gold paint, watered down white acrylic paint, and Pastel Dreams watercolors on top. In every other section I added sequins from the Mixed Embellishments as well as round Epoxy Stickers and Puffy Stickers for little pops of color that look like candy.

For the title I cut an Epoxy Sticker sentiment in half to get just the "YOU", added gold "ADORE" Puffy Phrase Stickers, and finished with the Thickers to say "UNICORNS". YOU ADORE UNICORNS :) She sure does! To finish I wrote a bit of journaling on a piece of a Journaling Spot and tucked it under the left side of the photo to balance the title.

I hope this layout inspires you in some way! I love creating layouts just for fun and only wish I had filmed the process :) Be sure to check out my cut files and new Truly Grateful collection!
