Circles: Live Out Loud

Hey everyone, Raquel here today with a new layout to share for Circles week on the Pink Paislee blog. For my layout I decided to use a cut file available here as a base for my layout design. I am a big fan of a diagonal design and loved that this cut file led itself to one.

The layout features the Fancy Free collection by Paige Evans. As always, I love the bright colours that this collection brings to a page, and against a white background, boy they sure do pop!

Here is the layout I created:

I added a subtle texture to the background with a music notes stencil from my stash and a white texture paste. I applied that to the page diagonally just to add a bit of detail to the areas behind the cut file.

I used the button pack to match with the circular layout design. They added a nice pop of colour to the page. The ‘happy dance’ text is cut from a circle in one of the patterned papers within the collection. I used that circle and a couple of the others from the paper to back to smaller circles within the cut file.

For the circles that contained photos I have backed them with doilies from my stash. I was able to use both 5″ and 4″ doilies behind them. I love the softness that this adds.

I also embellished the page with die cut ephemera and the cute swiss crosses from the silver glitter Thickers pack.

The dream acetate script can also be found in the ephemera pack.

The acetate pieces pop beautifully off the white background, even with the added texture of the paste.

The title of the page is live out loud. It just summarised these photos of my little girl beautifully. I used the 4×6″ card from the cut apart patterned paper for backing that section of the cut file. I was wrapt when it fit perfectly!

I applied the whole cut file to the page with a foam adhesive. I do this as the cut file is white and applying it to a white background can sometimes mean it fades in a little and doesn’t stand out. The foam adhesive adds a shadow to the page and helps the cut file pop from the white background.
