Precious Moments | Michelle Stokes

Hello Friends, Its Michelle back here today with a new layout share. I’ve jumped back to last months release and chosen a fun cut file called Burst Circles that was just singing out to be used.

I chose to document a photo of Leila from a recent trip to the Zoo. We had so much fun that day, and this little lady just LOVED posing for pictures time and time again. I can say that her 2 front teeth are FINALLY making a breakthrough after almost 8 months of non existence.

To start the layout I worked in Silhouette Studio to resize the entire file so that only 3 of the larger circular designs (lets call them sunburst circles) were the main focus. I played around with different ways to present them on the layout before cutting all the pieces out on white cardstock then cutting each individual circular piece so that I could layer them in different ways across the page.

I’ve used the newer ‘Just a little Lovely’ collection from PinkFresh Studio to compliment the burst circles design. I’ve backed the ‘sunbursts’ with a blue and white floral pattern paper and adhered them to the layout using foam tape, then layered the full circular bursts under each piece at random. I also adhered the negative circular pieces around the page and sewed through a couple using machine and thread.

I added the photo to the larger of the 3 sunbursts which is also backed with a pattern paper from the collection, layered with a couple of ephemera pieces and adhered to the page using more foam tape.

To the left of the layout on the middle size sunburst I have added an ephemera piece, fussy cut florals and a title. I’ve created smaller clusters diagonally across the page from each other using embellishments to compliment the cut file design.

Once the layout was complete I’ve splattered gold colour shine, added a few enamel dots and a date stamp.

Well folks thats all from me today. Before I go heres a few friendly reminders….
