For today's layout, I used a few different cut files. I used Happy Camper, Here & There, and Scalloping Circles cut files. I was in the mood to create a travel-themed page, and these files jumped out at me.
I used the Scalloping Circles as a background element. I cut it in white cardstock and then adhered it to another sheet of white cardstock. Then I used gesso to cover a huge portion of it to prepare it for some mixed media work. I used a few distress inks and some plastic packaging to create my messy background. I wanted the circles to be subtle and add interest and texture. The collection I used is called Modern Girl from Bo Bunny. I really just loved the fun colors.
Lots going on here...you can really see the ink up close and all the layers under the photo. I added some vellum under the picture, too. I used gelatos to color the edges of the "Road Trip" triangle, and I used distress inks to color "destination." That's the beauty of cutting files onto white cardstock :) I printed my journaling on my computer since there was no easy spot to write it. I didn't want to try and write over the background cut file.
I love the white-on-white look...perfect for a big busy cut file background without being TOO busy. I did trace around it with a silver pen to give it a little bit of clarity.
Aren't these viewfinder pieces so cute? I cut them from patterned paper and tucked them into my layers. I think they are perfect for echoing the circles in the background.
I added in lots of wood veneer from Studio Calico. I colored this one with blue gelatos and then adhered it over some red thread. That cute flair button is from A Flair For Buttons. I don't use red a whole lot on my pages, so this cute button just had to be used on this page!
One more look at the top...you can see where I stitched and added in some washi tapes.
I hope this inspires you to create a fun travel page! There are a lot more travel cut files available in the shop!
Here's a process video showing how I created this page from start to finish. Enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
