'Favorite Bro' layout

Sunday, June 30, 2019

Hey scrappy people, it's Lisa back on the blog today!
For this project I wanted to use a cutfile from Paige that I thought was really cute and would make a perfect big embellishment. Here's what I came up with:
Turn a cutfile into a huge embellishment that will act like a great statement piece on your page. @lisafonseca1985 used a tree cutfile by @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee, decorating it with Paige’s collection Horizon. She put it on a blue background to make it stand out and eye-catching. #pinkpaislee #layout #lisafonseca #paigeevans #cutfile #horizon
When I started, I didn't know if I wanted to cut out the tree from white paper and place it on a colored background or cut it from colored paper and place it on a white background. I opted for a white cutfile. When the tree was cut out, I placed it on different patterned papers from the Horizon collection to see what would be the prettiest. I opted for this blue background because it reminded me of a tree standing in front of a night sky.

There are four different kinds of flowers on the tree. I wanted to use a different technique to decorate, for every kind, instead of just backing all the flowers.
The flower with a lot of petals, I backed normally, using dark pink and light pink patterned paper.
The flower with six petals, I backed, using scalloped circles, I punched out of a baby blue patterned paper.

I have this tiny five petal flower punch that looks exactly like the five petal one on the tree (just smaller). So I punched out some of those in all the rainbow colors and placed them on top of the cutfile flowers.
For the last type of flower, I created mini rolled flowers with one of Paige's cutfiles. I then adhered them on top of the cutfile, using my glue gun.
I also placed sequins in the middle of all the flowers, except the 3D ones.

Before adhering the tree to the background, I splattered the whole page with white acrylic paint.
Since, there was already a lot going on on the layout, I didn't want to back the photo with too many layers, like I always do. So I jut matted it with one paper, creating a frame. As a title, I used a cardstock sticker saying 'favorite' and then used some Thickers to write the word 'Bro' underneath. I only have one brother, haha... :) but I couldn't come up with a better title! :)

I embellished just a little bit on this page, since it was already full. I placed an ephemera flower and a chipboard flower underneath the picture, two stickers on the bottom of the page and some white punched stars all around the "sky".

I really hope you like it and are inspired to use these cutfiles!
Thank you!
