Cauldron Layout by Audrey Mutschall

Tuesday, September 26, 2023

Hi friends!! Audrey Mutschall here with a new layout featuring Paige’s Cauldron from the 13 Halloween Cut Files! My daughter received a Magic Mixie Cauldron for her 5th birthday and we had lots of fun taking photos as it bubbled and released swirling smoke before revealing the toy inside! The Blooming Wild collection coordinated perfectly with the colors in my photos so it was a natural choice for this page.
I started by cutting the Cauldron from white cardstock and then cutting an offset with an indigo colored cardstock. I placed the indigo offset behind the white layer and glued the two together. The dark colored offset adds dimension to the cut file and helps make the words more visible. I backed the bottom of the cut file with pink striped Paper 16 from the 6x8 Paper Pad and two purple patterns from starburst Paper 22. The top of the cut file is backed with watercolor Paper 18. For the bubbles I chose a few different techniques: I turned some of them into sequin shakers by placing sequins between two layers of vellum. I also backed some of the bubbles with vellum and glued sequins on top then backed others with patterned paper from starburst Paper 22, and topped them off with sequins as well. I just love the added sparkle from the sequins! For the background, I stenciled overlapping circles using inks in shades of purple, pink, blue, green, and yellow to coordinate with the watercolor paper that I’d used to back the top of the cut file. This was such a fun and easy way to make “bubbles” on the background. I matted my photos with white grid Paper 5 and added strips of pink star patterned paper from one of the Boxed Cards. Lastly, I embellished with Chipboard Stickers, the Sticker Book, and some stars and sequins from my stash.
I hope this inspires you to check out Paige’s amazing bundle of 13 Halloween Cut Files! Many of them can be used to document occasions other than Halloween!
