Criss Cross Arrows-Adventure

Hello friends!  Candace here with you 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 3x4 journaling cards and ink splatters the layout was done.  

Here is a look at the final layout.

A few close ups...

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope this gives you a little inspiration and some ideas to try on your layouts.  I would love to see what you create!  Please tag The Cut Shoppe so we can swoon over your creations!  
Also, just a reminder that there is still a coupon code that is good through the end of December.  

Have a beautiful holiday season!
