Hey there scrappy friends, I’m back on the blog today, sharing this rainbow layout!
For this layout, I created my own cut file. I designed a wreath in the Silhouette program made of hearts and stars and flowers. To cut it out, I used one of Paige Evans’ patterned papers from the Whimsical collection, the one with the rainbow stripes.
I wanted to do a little mixed media on the background before placing the wreath on it. First I put some white gesso on the whole sheet of paper, then I took some Distress Oxides and put down some color being careful to use the same colors as on the wreath.
When the machine was done cutting the different shapes, I started adhering the shapes unto the page. To help me do this, I used the paper the shapes were cut out of as a stencil.
Then I cut off the edges of the white paper and placed it on that same rainbow patterned paper to create a matching border. To embellish and make the wreath look more full and rounder, I used some rub-ons, enamel shapes, cardstock stickers, chipboard stickers, and punched-out hearts.
I matted my picture on some scraps of patterned papers and adhered it to my page. Next to it I used an ephemera piece and some mini foam Thickers to create my title.
To finish the layout, I splattered some paint around the wreath, using the same rainbow colors. I hope you like how it turned out and are inspired to create your own cut file for your next project!
