I looked at this cut file and thought about a theme or title I could go with. I could be looking forward, looking back, looking up, growing up, falling down (I do that sometimes, ha), flying somewhere, at a Circ du Soleil show, growing a garden, scrap about tall brothers, sisters, friends. So many possibilities and I’m sure you could think of more just poking through your own photos. In the end, I chose, “things are looking up” because I have a lot of photos of our visit to the Eiffel Tower ! Si magnifigue, non?
I began by stenciling my white AC Cardstock with a cloud stencil and Oxide Inks. Then used my Cameo and the Jordan Sketch Font by Lori Whitlock to write ‘Things Are Looking up’ along the bottom (click on image for full size).
I punched tiny holes in the writing with a straight pin and back stitched with 5 strands of DMC Floss in colours to match my layout. For a rainbow look, I changed colours about every 1.5 letters. Then, I paper-backed the cut file with paper from several Paige Taylor Evans Collections, here’s the list and the chain stitched Arrow Cut File (click on image for full size):
I just love these colours! The finished cut file was popped up on my background with 3D Foam Tape then it was time to embellish.
I added three epoxy travel words from Paige’s Horizon Collection. Luckily, it’s now available in digital ! Add some Glossy Accents or Crystal Glaze to the digital prints to make a similar embellishment. The fussy cut birds are from Paige’s pretty Turn The Page Collection, also available in Digital.
Finally, a smattering of tiny sequins, gold metallic paint and White Nuvo Drops. Have you missed any days so far? Pop over to Paige’s website to catch up ! Join Paige and the Design Team at her Happy Scrappy Place Group on Facebook for lot’s of Bundle inspirations this entire month!
