Hi friends! Last Tuesday I was up on JustNick's blog with a layout using this super cute "Floral Umbrella" cut file from JustNick Studio. When Echo Park's collection "Alice In Wonderland" was released I was one of the first to buy it. But when it arrived I didn't know what to use it for and it ended it up in my pile of scrapbook papers. This cut file made me think of that collection straight away, so I looked for some fun photos and got started. Here's what I made:
Isn't this Floral Umbrella cut file just perfect?!!
I enlarged the cut file a little and adhered lots of different patterned papers behind it:
I just love how this looks already! Now the fun part started! Don't get me wrong, I love backing cut files as well, I just love building my page more. I contemplated whether or not I shoud add watercolor paint behind the umbrella, but decided against it and to go with a clean white backgroud with only a couple of paint drops.
The place of the photo strip was easy, that had to come left of the umbrella shaft with a journaling card on the right. Next I only had to add some die-cuts and stickers. When I was done I decided to add a blue cardstock behind my page to add a bit more color.
Here are a few close-ups:
Of course I machine stitched around my page, on the cut file and a bit here and there on my layout.
I really love how this turned out.
Lots of fabulous new cut files are added to the JustNick Studio Store! Don't forget to check them all out!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Wishing you a wonderful week.
