Hey everyone. Recently my youngest daughter finished her 4 year Bachelor of Design degree and at the end of this fourth year the students have an exhibition and this photo was taken of us from the opening night.
- Cut to You Frames svg file
- Kaisercraft Crafternoon patterned paper, ephemera, stickers, stamp set, glass circle curios.
- American Crafts thickers Choose Happy
- Liquitex Gloss Gel and Irridescent mediums mixed together
Once I had decided the background paper I spread some irridescent gel over the background with a spatula and left it to dry. I’m not very patient so sped this up a bit with a heat gun. It doesn’t show up too well in the photos but gives the background a lovely subtle shimmer. The photo below gives an idea of what this looks like.
Once the background was dry I then stamped three of the hearts from the matching Crafternoon stamp set in black ink.
I imported the svg cut file into my Brother Scan n cut and cut it out on thick white cardstock (300gsm).
I backed the cut file with Crafternoon patterned paper. While the background was drying I played around with the placement of the other items I wanted to add on top of the cut file. I rotated the cut file so that it suited the photo layout better. This gave a bit more room on the right so that when I added the ephemera I wasn’t covering up too much of my hubby. The bottom left of the photo didn’t have anything interesting to show so was the perfect spot to add the title.
I had the perfect thickers to go with this layout. The Choose Happy thickers had all the colours I was using so was the perfect compliment.
Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.
