What A Lovely Day

By Jcchris
Good morning creative people! Today I would like to share with you a step-by-step on how I created my layout for Maggie Holmes Design Team.  photo 3c6436d9-9d20-400b-bc56-b9a1762171d4_zps47a9c9bb.jpgI found this fun cut in the Silhouette online store. What I did was to remove some points in the Silhouette studio to suit my design, having to use the triangle studs in mind. After cutting the design onto a white card stock, I layered the back with a piece of patterned paper. Then, I sewed at the edges - all around the card stock. Next, I adhered another white cardstock (sewn at the edges as well) and created a little lift by using foam dots.

I bent the spikes using my thumbnail. Of course, you can use a plier to bend them. Next, I applied a foam dot in the middle. photo 0e94b068-e758-40e3-9cb0-3b57ad58b9e1_zps53f85bbc.jpgDon't you just love the studs placed all over the cuts? That's the whole intention, I wanted them to be part of the design. As you can observe, I pasted some of the hexagon cuts too so that the layout won't look too busy. After positioning my photo, I begun to embellish the layout with lots of fun ephemera & vellum shapes.  photo WhatALovelyDay_Layout7_zps6e780c46.jpgTa daa.... here is the completed layout! All I did was to cluster a bunch of ephemera & vellum shapes together so that they matched with the colours of the studs and the photo as well.  photo 5288553a-e5c7-4dba-af97-54aa159e6742_zps88aa8db6.jpg
