Spring Frame Layout by Neftali Zambrano

Monday, May 31, 2021

Hi friends! Neftali Zambrano back on the blog today with a 12x12 monochromatic layout I created using another one of the cut files from Paige's 20 Days of Spring Cut Files and the Wonders collection.

For this layout I am using the Day 18: Spring Frame cut file. I started off by cutting out the cut file on a 12x12 sheet of blue cardstock, sized down to 11x11. I wanted to try something different by cutting the cut file on a colored cardstock because I knew that I wasn’t going to be backing it with much detail. Instead, I thought about backing it on a whole patterned paper, and I did so using Paper 11. This paper had the perfect mix of colors with a soft wash of “mixed media” look. I used my glue pen to add the cut file onto Paper 11 and then I added some ink splatters in blue and white. I also decided to add a bit of extra shine to the cut file by brushing a light coat of Shimmerz ink in a few random spots around the page, nothing too complicated.

I had lots of fun adding all the blue embellishments I could find from the Wonders collection. I used a whole array of pieces from the collection including the 8-Page Sticker BookFloral Die CutsPuffy StickersCardstock Stickers, ThickersBanner StickersLollies, and Chipboard Stickers. All of these wonderful bits from the collection gave me the perfect selection of blue embellishments to add all the pieces to my layout.

I hope this layout has inspired you to try something new: a monochromatic layout, a colorful cut file, and a mix of matching embellishments! Thanks for stopping by today crafty friends. See you next time!

  1. Blue on blue, so pretty! Love the monochromatic look. You pulled it off beautifully!

    1. Thank you so much Annie! I never did think blue on blue would look so good, but all the details in this cut file make it all come together so nicely!
