Sweet Dreams

Hi everyone, Julie with you today, sharing my first layout for the Cut Shoppe. I choose to work with 3 cutfiles; Happy Little Clouds, Flocked & Feathered & Sweet Dreams.

I cut some feathers out & used the negative piece as a stencil to ink my page first & them laid the cut feathers over the top after inking them. I cut a ring out of card & bound it, all the way round, with embroidery thread. Inside the ring I punched holes & threaded more embroidery thread to make a star pattern. I attached that to the page & added more thread to look like the feathers were hanging from the ring, so making a dream catcher.

I cut out some clouds from the happy little clouds file & sweet dreams & inked around the edges & also went around with a black pen to make them stand out. I backed one of the clouds with some vellum & the others I used an acetate card from the Pinkfresh Studio Happy Things collection. I made a photo mat with some papers from the happy things 6x6 paper pad & added my photo on top. My title I inked in 3 different colours & again I drew around it with a black pen. I finished off the layout with a few splatters of mists & some star sequins.

Thanks so much for taking a look today & I’ll be back with you towards the end of the month,  xoxo
