Grand Teton Layout by Heidi Lewis

Monday, May 29, 2023

Hello friends! It’s Heidi Lewis here on the blog today to share a new layout featuring a cut file from Paiges 20 Spring Cut Files! I went biking in Grand Teton National Park recently and wanted to scrap my photos right away. I chose to work with the Flower Background. Painting cut files with watercolor is a popular technique, but I put a different spin on this technique by using alcohol markers instead. Alcohol markers are less messy and more saturated than watercolors, so if mixed media isn’t your jam, give markers a try!
To make this layout, I cut out the Flowers Background from white cardstock. Then I traced the flowers with the brush-side of my Ohuhu alcohol markers. (Other brands would work great, too, if they are acid-free.) Next, I backed some of the diamonds in the cut file with a mix of colored and black and white photos. Then I adhered the cut file to smooth white cardstock. I made my title out of Thickers from Paige’s Blooming Wild collection. I finished off the layout with Floral Die CutsChipboard Stickers, and pieces from the Sticker Book. What goes with flowers better than more flowers, butterflies, and bees? Lol.
If you want to document some recent photos or try a new technique, this is your sign to go buy the 20 Spring Cut Files bundle and to start playing with markers. I can’t wait to use this technique again!
