Hey scrappy friends, it’s Lisa back on the blog.
My assignment for today was creating a white on white layout using a cutfile. This is what I came up with…
This was a very fast layout, since I couldn’t incorporate too much color.
I started by using a February subscriber cutfile. I think the heart-shaped flowers look really really cute and were perfect for backing, in this specific layout, since I wanted a lot of it to stay white and the flowers only have these tiny centers that you can back with patterned papers.
After I backed every center of every flower, with patterned papers (Main Kit, Paper Kit) I thought that it was missing something. Since I didn’t want to use too much color, I decided to draw on the flowers using a gold pen. So I added a few little details on some flowers and it really helped the cutfile stand out from the background.
Before adhering the cutfile to my white sheet of paper, I put some gold and pink splatters on the page. Then I added the cutfile on top using tiny foam squares.
I also absolutely wanted to use that white and black striped paper. I cut very thin stripes of it and adhered them on the borders of the page to create a frame. If you already know me, you know I love my framed layouts 😉
For my picture, I used one I had taken at Creativation in January. It’s me with the amazing scrappy gals Irit, Tanya, Leigh and Jen 🙂 As you can see, we had a great and fun time together!!
I matted the picture on some scraps from all the patterned papers I had used to back my cutfile. Then I also adhered it to the page.
For my title I used the Shimelle thickers (Main Kit) and I also hand-cut the word “people” from white paper. I adhered the words on a pink/red patterned paper and cut them out again, leaving a border. I then used some tiny puffy Pinkfresh Studio alphas (Project Life Kit) to write some more words under the picture.
To finish I added some pink flowers that I made using paper and the Shimelle enamel shapes (Main Kit).
I really hope you like how it turned out and got a little bit inspired to try a white on white layout.
Thank you so much for stopping by…
