Remember that song "Fooled Around And Fell In Love" by Elvin Bishop? I think it was from 1975 and I am pretty sure it was in the movie Boogie Nights. Great! Now that you are singing that and will be for the rest of the day (you are welcome!) I will fill you in on what it has to do with today's layout and cut file!
When I saw Ashley's "Spread Your Wings" cut file I just knew I already had the absolute perfect photograph
I fooled around with my watercolors on a fresh sheet of white cardstock, textured is my preference. Once it was dry, I spattered it with black watercolor paint, smudged it a little here and there and put it in my Cameo as I would a regular sheet of cardstock. I cut out my butterflies, trimmed a few off to get the look I was working towards and glued it to another sheet of white cardstock.
I added the bits and pieces to bring it all together and finished it with a little shimmer spatter and a few cork hearts. This really is a beautiful cut file however you plan to use it.
My boys are pretty much the coolest
I literally FOOLED AROUND with this technique and cut file AND FELL IN LOVE with how this turned out. I can see myself using this technique many times in the future.
**Quick Tip** Once your watercolors are dry, spin your page a few times before deciding which direction to put it in the machine. Mine is not the original orientation I painted it in.
