Cutie Pie Layout Featuring Texture

Monday, June 5, 2017

Hey everybody! Today I have a new layout to share with you featuring some of my favorite techniques: hand stitching, lots of flowers, and something new: a modeling paste background! Scroll to the end of this post to find the process video to watch and see how this layout came together from start-to-finish.

Over spring break we went on a road trip that involved over 30 hours of driving - to help pass the time between destinations I brought along some stitching projects, including this floral design which is a free cut file from Paper Issues! They have so many amazing (and did I mention FREE!) cut files, I highly recommend taking a look :) I used white thread to stitch on white cardstock to create a textured look.
For a long time I thought about painting in the design, but the more I thought about it, the more I felt like it should stay white on white. But, I still needed COLOR! I love lots and lots of color. There are quite a few flowers from my Oh My Heart collection with Pink Paislee available in the Silhouette Design Store so I downloaded them, printed them, then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut them out! Easy peasy!
To make the background I used an old KI Memories (remember them???) die cut background as a stencil along with modeling paste on white textured cardstock. I was going for lots of texture on this page! Once the paste dried I layered the stitched floral design on top then began tucking the die cut flowers underneath. I found a colorful photo, typed my journaling on the photo before printing, and then placed it at the bottom of the page. To help bring more focus to the photo I tucked even more flowers under the top.
Here is the process video:
