Selfie Giggles Layout by Missy Whidden

Tuesday, July 24, 2018

Hey, friends! Missy here! Have you ever used one of Paige’s cut files as a stencil? That’s what I did on this layout using her Flower cut file. It’s a simple flower, but I duplicated it in several sizes and made a vertical design. I cut it on white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo and then scraped modeling paste over it. I used a fun multi-colored paper from the Fancy Free 12x12 Paper Pad as my background and faded out a lot of the pattern with white gesso. Once the paste dried, I used some bold ink sprays to add in lots of red, pink, aqua, dark blue, and yellow. These colors match the Pick-Me-Up collection perfectly.
The gesso helped to prep the patterned paper for the paste and liquid sprays. I really love the rich colors and fun texture this created. To add in a bit more dark blue, I machine stitched around the center of each flower. I used color photos to brighten everything up and embellished with Pick-Me-Up Chipboard StickersEphemera Die CutsStickers, and fussy cut bits from the 12x12 Paper Pad. Did you know there are several papers included in it with gold foil? Yes!! My title is subtle on the dark blue area and made with the Pick-Me-Up Mini Thickers.
I fussy cut several flower clusters from one of the Pick-Me-Up 12x12 Paper Pad papers and used them as layers. Here is another floral Chipboard Sticker under the photo. I also tucked some dark blue thread under the flowers for an extra pop of color and texture.
I added in a few more Pick-Me-Up Chipboard Stickers and even a Rub-On. I’m really crushing on this deep reddish pink color! My final touch was some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine.
If you want a new idea on stencils, give this fun cut file a try. Paige has so many cut files that would make awesome stencils! I hope this inspires you and gives you some ideas for your next layout. Thanks for stopping by!
