Good morning Rikki here today, nothing like a little bit of cold weather to get the mojo flowing or maybe its this months Dusty Attic stunning Moodboard.
Something about the amazing shades of purples and pink and I am in. What do you think? Will you playing along?
Recently I have found myself mastering my Silhouette Cameo, I really share a love/ hate relationship with it but we are starting to come to an understanding so that’s a positive thing, which means I can try something new and see how I can then change the cut file up and make it my own.
So this month I will be sharing two layouts that use cut files and Dusty Attic Chipboard and seeing how you can create something unique while using your supplies.
So to start download and cut your file out, I love starting with white so I can then build from there, don’t forget you can colour them after which means you can have some of these files cut out before time (more importantly when your machine is playing nice- I cant be the only one that feels this why right?)
*** A handy tip – keep all the pieces that way you can trace around them to insert into your image.
So once you have ”filled ” your cut file with pattern papers add some foam tape and stick to your background. Now this is where the traditional scrapbooking comes into play, building your layers up with fussy cutting and chipboard.
I added my photo first then used Moon #1 by Nuneka on the left hand side cluster of fussy cutting near the photo, I love working around one key piece of chipboard and then build from there.
Once you have laid out all your fussy cutting is now time to get your Dusty Attic Chipboard elements interacting with the rest of the elements.
If you haven’t noticed by now I love my Dusty Attic Chains, cant get enough of them, honestly I get packets and packets of them and still cant find enough of them when I need to find them.
I love how you can use them to draw your eye down the page and through all your layers.
Industrial globes are added throughout the layout then to tie them together add chains in different lengths….
To add the soft feminine touches to the chain I cut up Foliage #14 and once the pieces where separated then give them a little bend and twist so they look like they are spiraling down the chain.
To finish off the layout add a chipboard title and layer over your cut file title…..
