Amazing & Timeless

Scrapbook layout created for Scrapbook Nerd  - Amazing & Timeless  -

Hello there!

This is my last project for my week reveal at Scrapbook Nerd!

I think this month the theme of my reveal is fun with cut files.  I find cut files to be a spark to my imagination.  In fact this project changed as the background took shape.

I was inspired to create the background by the Wreathed in Love cut file from the Cut Shoppe.  Using the Cameo, the background was perforated.  A combination of 2 watercolor palettes gave color to the wreath, which then was stitched to add some texture to the layout.

Once the  wreath was finished, the concept changes completely, and i decided to fussy cut the flowers from Pink Paislee's Take Me Away collection.  I layered the picture with the flowers, ephemera and chipboard stickers from the sane collection, and a few embelishments from the Moonstruck collection,

For the title, i used a combination of ephemera pieces  and chipboard stickers from the 2 collections.   to tie in the design, a few drops of gold color shine, and gold rub-on starburst were placed along the page.  Here is the complete layout:

Even when the colors of the wreath are different form the ones in the leaves, the color scheme beautiful, and complement the black and white picture of my sister perfectly.

I hope this week's projects inspire you to take a second look at cut files and what you create with them.   Don't forget to check Scrapbook Nerd for all the materials used, and the Cut Shoppe for all the lovely cut files.
