I chose Heart Group (Design ID #260894) from Paige’s Silhouette store. I knew I wanted to do some mixed media on my page and thought about how I could tweak the cut file to get the look I wanted!
I first cut just the whole outline from white cardstock by ungrouping the design and deleting the hearts. I then used spray mists to “fill in” the heart. I used four different colors, and the cut file made a great stencil! While the ink was drying, I went back to the cut file, and this time I deleted the outside cut line of the hearts and just kept the heart’s themselves. I lined them all up in a grid, grouped them and then duplicated all the hearts and reduced the size. I painted the hearts with a deep navy paint and painted the smaller hearts with white paint. I then ran a line of stitching through both hearts and glued them onto my page!
Now comes the embellishing!! I had chosen the ink sprays to coordinate with Pick Me Up by Paige Evans and Pink Paislee, so it was just a matter of choosing which die cuts looked great with my photo. I chose a flower cluster, some word tabs and the butterflies from the sticker sheet. I finished it off with the pretty “today” chipboard in glimmery gold foil!
I LOVE how my page turned out. Using Paige’s cut files as stencils is a great way to get multiple uses out of them!
