Happy 2021 “The good life”|2021|Spring Floral Banner| Josefine

Hello Paperlovers,
Welcome to the Cut To You blog today! It’s Josefine here showing you a new mixed media layout using the beautiful 2021 Cut File and the Spring Floral Banner. Yes, I used two Cut File on this scrapbook page!!

First I started with the background. I applied Distress Oxide with a acrylic stamp that looks like a stain and the ink color that I used is “Evergreen bough” With a brush I applied a little bit water to the ink on the stamp for a more watercolor effect on my layout.

When the Distress Oxide on my background is dry it’s time to started with the cutfiles. First I placed my “Spring Floral Banner” on my background and under the floral of the cutfile I placed some Flower die-cuts (see photo) from the beautiful “Daydream” collection from Cocoa Vanilla. This way I make layers with my die-cuts and cutfile.

I made four banners from the design papers of the “dayDream” collection, cut on size and stitched them with silver thread. I placed the banners on my layout with the photo on top. I also put some die-cuts and paper flowers on my page.

Now it’s time for the second cutfile. I used the 2021 cutfile as part of my title. I backed it with acetate decorated with silver dots. I edited the bottom of the 2021 title with silver glitter. After that I stitched it on my layout with silver thread and decorated with a word strip “The good life” and a paper flower. Finally I make white splashes with gesso for an extra festive look!

I hope I was able to inspire you with my layout! I wish everyone a beautiful day and enjoy creating! XoXo, Josefine
