Hey friends! It's Kira and I am back with a 12x12 scrapbook layout featuring some fussy cutting. If you aren't a fan of fussy cutting...don't worry, I chose the easiest paper for this! Even the fussy cutting haters won't mind. ;)
I started with the Heidi Swapp Pineapple Crush "Good Vibes" paper. I didn't necessarily have an end goal in mind when I start this layout so I just started cutting out hexagons from the paper. I fussed around with those for a bit, then cut the hexagons into diamonds and chevrons. Still no plan.
So I kept cutting. Lol. I had cut about 1/4 of the paper and decided to sort the diamonds and chevrons by color. I am definitely a color scrapper so this made it easier for me to determine a design.
I started playing with a pattern on my paper, alternating between a diamond piece and a chevron. Which eventually turned into a circular shape. So I thought a few of these on a page might be cute. I laid out a pink, yellow and blue shape.
Once I had placement approximately where I liked it, I lightly traced around the shapes so I could place some mixed media behind them. I stuck with some light, subtle watercolor and the packaging technique. After that had dried, I adhered the shapes to the page over their coordinating colors. I decided to add some machine stitching down all of the diamonds and chevrons for some additional texture.
The embellishing was rather easy since I decided color blocking would look best. I went thru all the embellishments in the main, PL and embellishment kits and sorted them by color. Then added a few of each color to the coordinating shapes.
Thanks for stopping by!
This is magnificent.ReplyDelete
