Hellooooo! I have a new layout up on The Cut Shoppe blog today. It's a nice and spring-y page, so I'm excited that I finally get to share it!
I used the awesome Rosey Posey cut file for this page. I focused on using just ONE cut file on my page rather than putting several different files together. I just love the bold, yet feminine, feel this floral diecut gives to the overall page.
I love getting a little bit artsy on my pages, so I used some gesso on the flowers as a first layer. Once that dried, I added some acrylic paints. Some of the paints I used are from Studio Calico. Those Color Theory paints actually have a bit of a shine to them. At first I was like, "What in the world?!" but now I really love the sheen. Sometimes you don't want that dull acrylic paint look… so Color Theory paints come to the rescue! :)
Besides the paints, I also used another cool item on this page: a transparency. I won several Bella Blvd. transparencies from their CHA giveaway (yep-- there's one of the things I won!). I think this woodgrain print is my fave. I just looooooove it. Actually, there's a clouds one I really like too. Usually I'm not a transparency fan, but something in me has changed and now I love them!
Thanks for stopping by!! :)
