Sweet Girl Layout by Brianna Lepper

Monday, January 25, 2021

   Hey friends! Brianna Lepper here today sharing a fun mixed media layout using one of Paige's cut files as a stencil. I’ve always loved this technique and wanted to do another layout using it. Here’s what I created:

To start, I cut Paige’s Diagonal Stripes Background cut file out on white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. Once it was finished cutting, I taped it to a piece of thick white cardstock and applied modeling paste through it. Next, I grabbed Distress Oxides inks in a variety of colors that matched Paige’s Go the Scenic Route collection. I painted each color on making sure to add some water to allow the colors to run and blend together.

I set my background aside to dry and went to work on cutting out Paige’s Heart Group cut file on another piece of white cardstock. I then backed a few of the hearts in the cut file using the 2x2 Paper Pads. Next, I popped the cut file on some foam tape and adhered it to my mixed media background. I love the texture, dimension, and shadows!

I love a good rainbow inspired layout and I love embellishing tone-on-tone as well. I kept that in mind when choosing the embellishments for this layout. I pulled some Floral Die CutsChipboard StickersCharmsPuffy Phrase Stickers, a Flag Paperclip, and Enamel Dots. I also added in a few groups of tangled thread to give the layout another layer of texture.

I love how my mixed media colors match so well with this collection. The colors are so happy and vibrant. For my title, I used the Puffy Word Stickers and the Mini Foam Thickers from the Pick-Me-Up collection. Those awesome Mini Foam Thickers are still my favorite!

I hope that I’ve inspired you in some way today to either try using one of Paige's cut files as a stencil, create a rainbow themed layout, or to embellish tone-on-tone. I had so much fun with this layout and I hope that you like it! I really love working with Paige's cut files and finding different ways to use them. Thank you so much for being here and I’ll see you in my next post!
