The one thing I love about scrapbooking and it is particularly prevalent when I get ready to make a layout with Paige’s cut files is the mystery of what I will make!! That might sound a bit silly, but I find it fun to just stumble across something that speaks to me at that moment and go with it! Looking through Paige’s cut file shop at the Silhouette store is like browsing through a candy shop. The files say “pick me,” for this layout, I chose the Flowers Cut File (Design ID #268655) and cut it from white cardstock.
I decided to get out my Vicki Boutin mixed media goodies and paint up a background. I wanted the flowers to stand out, and I could have painted the flowers and put them on a white background, and I think they would have looked stunning that way too! I used colors from my photo and some pretty gold texture paste. I love the fall colors, and I was also inspired by the little 2×2 paper from Turn the Page.
I added stickers around the layout from the Turn the Page sticker book and some stamps in black ink for some more texture.
I decided to paint the flower centers black and outline the petals with sketchy black lines so the flowers would pop even more! I added foam dot adhesive for dimension. I am really happy with how my layout turned out. This flower cut file is really gorgeous and I am sure I will cut it again and try painting the flowers!
