You & Me | A Mixed Media Layout
Hello Lovelies! Theresa here with a layout using the Love Stories kit once again, and also this amazing cut file available in the shop, You & Me. I was so inspired by this file and I just had to go create with it! Here is my layout.
Don't you just love when you see a product (or a photo, or an embellishment) and you just HAVE to go make something with it?!? For my layout I decided to gesso the light pink paper so the cut file would pop against the background. Gesso is this amazing fun medium that allows bits of the background to show through in the most magical way! I just apply it with a dry brush to give it a bit of texture.
The cut file itself I cut using a blue patterned paper from the kit, from Crate Paper La La Love. Once I had it cut out, I backed some of the negative space in the cut file with a light floral patterned paper, and then I colored in the flowers in the cut file using Jane Davenport glitter pens in Red Sea, Indian Ocean, and Pacific Ocean.
I also added these fun dots around the cut file in the same color as the cut file, to add movement and fun to the layout. There is so much happy color on this layout, which makes it so fun to look at!
Once the background was all set, it was time to add photo, journaling, and fun embellishments to the page. I had a cute photo of my husband and myself on Valentine's Day of this year, and I pulled in all the heart shaped embellishments to tuck in and around the photo. I also used the heart glitter shaker stickers from the kit, they are so fun and cute!
For my journaling I simply added a few sentences directly to the background paper and underlined. This was so much fun to create and I hope you are inspired to use this cut file! We would love to see what you create, so be sure to share online and tag us so we can see!
