Hello friends! I am over on The Cut Shoppe Blog today to share a layout all about layering. Most of the time when I think about cut files I think about full page cut files and using them as the main design element for my page. But cut files can be used for so much more! For this layout I wanted to challenge myself use the cut file as a layering piece to add interest and dimension to my layout. For this little challenge I used the Criss Cross Arrows cut file.
I cut down the 8.5 x 11 cut file and layered it behind one of my all time favorite photos of my hubby and boys out on an adventure hike. I added some hidden journaling in a pocket I created between the photo and cut file. Once I had some direction the layout came together in a breeze! With the addition of chipboard pieces, some 3×4 journaling cards and ink splatters the layout was done.
Here is a look at the final layout…
A few close ups…
