Hello friends 🥰
I’m sharing my newest Design Team project for Paige Taylor Evans today and while we’ve been hunkered down for more than a month, spring has snuck in.
I wanted my layout to reflect that!
So, I have combined three of Paige’s cut files and the spring hues of beautiful Bloom Street to tell the story.
The birdhouse and all the letters are paper backed with product strips I’ve been saving from other Bloom Street projects. I taped them onto a scrap of white cardstock to make a collage sheet that was 12” by 6” then cut that into rectangles to fit behind the cut file letters.
Sometimes I think crafting today is a combination of everything we’ve learned before. Do you remember ‘paper tole’ ? A popular craft from the 80’s? I used a similar technique to put together the birdhouse. I cut out three birdhouses to be able to cut them apart, paper the sections and layer all the parts together to create dimension.
The background was stencilled with Distress Oxide Inks. I wanted it to look like bokeh on a sunny day. I just made a quick stencil in Silhouette Studio by cutting out various sizes of circles on a piece of scrap cardstock.
Finally, the whole design was matted onto a sheet of Paper 22 to create a colourful boarder all around.
