Handsome Smile Layout by Paige Evans

Wednesday, September 16, 2020

I have a new layout to share today using my Go the Scenic Route collection and Stars cut file!
While my Stars cut file was being cut on the Silhouette Cameo from the dark blue B-side of Paper 4, I chose a background: the blue mandala B-side of Paper 10. Originally I was going to make this a monochromatic blue layout, but quickly changed to lots of colors, I just can't help it ;)
 I backed the largest star with a photo of Fox. I can't even with this photo! He's so handsome! I used tiny dimensional foam squares to adhere the photo as well as the rest of the patterned paper stars in place to create depth and shadows.
 Most of the stars were cut from the multi-patterned squares of Paper 10 and I traced the inner stars leftover on the sticky mat onto the chosen portion paper and cut out the stars slightly larger to back the cut file.
I created three embellishment clusters - one is the title, one is journaling, and one is subtitles. For the title I used the Foam Thickers to write "HANDSOME" and used the orange "smile" from the Puffy Phrase Thickers below.
The journaling was written on two Ephemera Die Cuts and I stamped the date as well.  The last cluster is a couple of "smile" Cardstock Stickers, a "wild & free" Chipboard Sticker, and a "smile" heart fussy cut from a 2x2 Paper Pad. The last step was to splash watered down white acrylic paint in three sections to again create a visual triangle.
I hope you are inspired to pick up my Go the Scenic Route collection and Stars cut file to create a layout like this about your stellar family/kids/friends! Thanks for stopping by today and I'll be back soon with more creations!

  3. The dimension is off the hook! I love the cut file popped up above the paper backing like this. Your little fellow is so charming. He has a sweet and kind face and it's so wonderful that he and Jane adore being together. I also really like how you mixed the fonts on 'Handsome smile', clever you! 🥰😍
