Hi, it’s Piroska here today with my layout using the Leaf Duo cut file from the January Release.
As I told you in my introduction, I just love leaves, and now I dreamed of a bunch of them, surrounding my photo as a curtain.
First I downsized the cut file to 5 inches, and duplicated them 4 times. As I wanted to cut as many leaves out of the 12″ white smooth cardstock as just possible, I selected only one leaf for tracing, and then the other one, so I managed to cut 12 leaves all at once: 2 singles on the right, and 2 other singles on the bottom, rotated 90°. (I print screened my screen, but sorry, my Silhouette Studio programme speaks Hungarian…)
I cut out 20 leaves altogether. When I was ready with cutting, I started to make my layout. First I used modeling paste with an old stencil that has similar leaves as a pattern.
Then I added the leaves. I wanted them to look like a willow in the wind, so I only glued the stem of the branch and curled the leaves by hand.
First I backed my photo with a heavy cardstock, then with a white vellum and a silver net and I glued it down using foam adhesive. I added my foam title also in white colour, to stay at the monochromatic style. Finally I added some translucent NUVO Jewel Drops.
I hope I could inspire you to make a similar layout, it is such a fun! Go and grab the cut file from the shop!
Thanks for reading and happy scrapping!
