Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest post for CUT to YOU. Have you already seen the awesome mandala cut files from the April Release? I just love them, you can use it for several projects! This time I used the Floral Mandala 1 cut file for my layout.
First I cut the Floral Mandala 1 cut file from white cardstock. I wanted a bright colourful mandala, so I chose the two ombre papers from the Sunkissed collection of Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I backed the cut file with those beautiful yellow, pink, red, greens and blue colours. Looking at this mandala it makes you happy! 😀
This time I chose the photo only after having backed the cut file. The photo was taken in the spring break, when we were riding on our bycicles at the Lake Balaton. We were pretty happy, as the weather was beautiful enough to do so. I matted the photo with the same patterned papers as the cut file.
As a background I used a white background paper. Before glueing the mandala cut file on it, I watercoloured the background with my Catherine Pooler ink pad (Cummerbund).
Then I started to add some embellishments to the layout. I used cut outs, puffy stickers , clear stickers, phrase stickers from the Sunkissed collection of Cocoa Vanilla Studio.
I curled up the flowers to give them some dimension. I really like that effect. Finally I added my journalling.
I hope I could inspire you to get creative with these awesome mandala cut file! I would love to see what you create, so show it in our Facebook group! And don’t forget to grab some new cut files from the CUT to YOU shop 😉
