Hello! So happy to be sharing a layout using Whimsical and Paige’s cut files!! I chose the Flower Group (#277801) cut file and cut it from white cardstock. I backed the cut file with an assortment of papers in warm colors from the Whimsical 6×6 paper pad and one 12×12 sheet. I also used two B-side 12×12 papers in shades of green. I love that fact that the b-sides in Whimsical have almost every color you could need!!
Once I had the cut file finished, I added white gesso to my background and then began adding Shimmerz paints. I used corals and pinks similar to the papers from Whimsical.
Next, I added some plain paper, book paper, a doily and a tag under my photo for lots of dimension and texture. I tucked it beneath the photo and then adhered the cut file and photo layers to the background. For an added accent I chose the gorgeous patterned butterfly and popped it up on a white butterfly with some co-ordinating thread wrapped around it. I added that to the top corner of the photo to keep the focal point all in the same area.
I almost called the page done at that point, but I found the rose gold foil chipboard “play” and thought it would be cute to add to the page. I added it to the top of the flowers, and then I felt like I needed a bit more bling, so I mixed Vicki Boutin glaze in Rose Gold and Gold together and added it through a little heart stencil around the edges. My last finishing touch was the pretty “do what makes your soul happy” card and two tiny puffy stickers!
Thank you for having a look, I love how my page turned out!
