Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd - FALL LOVE -
Today, I am up on the Scrapbook Nerd blog with a quick video tutorial for the current project using their new, and free FALL FAVES cut file. This new file was designed exclusively for Scrapbook Nerd by The Cut Shoppe, and it is all about Fall, so sit comfortably, and enjoy the video on how this page came together:
I hope you enjoyed the video. For this page, I am using the new Grattitude Documented collection by Bella Blvd. and a bit of mixed media for the background.
To start, the title was cut at the bottom of the paper from the collection. Then, about a 1/4 in was trimmed from all sides of the mat, and this paper was stitched to a piece of white cardstock. I made sure to back each of the title words with a piece of patterned paper before attaching the mat to the cardstock.
All the leaves were set to cut from white cardstock, in the mean while, a bit of white acrylic paint was then added to the mat as to haze the space where the picture and leaves will be attached.
While the paint dried, some of the leaves were backed with papers from the 6x8 paper pad and vellum - I didn't use gesso on the paper, so there is a bit of warping in the layout-. The picture, too, was also backed with the a side of one of the collection papers.
The leaves were then attached to the mixed media spot with a bit of foam adhesive, and the picture was then nested in between the leaves. Just a few embellishments were placed in clusters around the picture.
For the title, i chose to add the negative pieces of the cut on a bit of an offset onto the respective letter. A bit of foam adhesive was needed to make the title pop. Also, using a white ink pen, the edge of the letters -on the mat- was drawn, so that there is some contrast on the colors of the title. Here is the final layout:
The detail in the cut file in combination with the bit of mixed media bring attention to the picture, making it the focal point of this layout. Remember to stop by Scrapbook Nerd store to pick up your free copy of this cut file. I look forward to see what you create with it!
Let me know if you have questions on how this came together.
See you all soon!
