Still Friends Layout by Cristina Sales

Saturday, May 25, 2019

Hi friends, Cristina Sales here and today I have a new page to share with you featuring a cut file I’d never used before - it’s the Cut and Fold Butterflies Background and I cut it with my Silhouette Cameo from white cardstock.
This kind of cut file is part of a series of cut & fold files by Paige that do not include a cut of the whole design but only some parts, leaving parts to lift and bend, allowing a glimpse of what is underneath. I had a lot of fun playing with my beloved watercolors, distributing them randomly on the wings of these wonderful butterflies. It seems like they're taking off in flight.

I then created a play of colors with the Necolor II of Caran d'Ache to get closer to the hot pink of the paper and then sprinkled the butterflies with color using a very light piece of acetate. I really love the final effect of the color all around the paper.

With a round-tipped brush I then dropped a few colors to create a splatter effect. To enrich the photo without weighing down the whole composition which was already very rich, I added a Tag, some Stickers, and a Charm, all from the Horizon collection. To make my title and a final embellishment I used the Foam Mini Thickers and Enamel Shapes from the Whimsical collection.

I hope you liked my project and many thanks for stopping by! See you in my next post!
