Hi friend.  Did you know that subscribers have access to the entire cut file library? There are hundreds of amazing designs which are free to subscribers!  I have selected a pretty design from June 2023 .

I was inspired by the pretty feathers in the kit to create a dreamcatcher style layout. I imagined the feathers dangling from the moon.

Firstly, I used texture paste through the June Color kit stencil – a mix of small stars and sparkles.  After it dried, I pulled out some Shimmerz to co-ordinate with the elements I will use – Beets Me and Golden Wheat, also from past color kits. I concentrated on creating colour flowing down the page as if it had dripped down. I used light strokes with a round brush.

To create more feathers, I painted with the Shimmerz onto white card.  After they had dried, I drew ‘feather’ shapes over the colour.  They are very easy to draw.

To enhance the cut file flower cluster I tucked in the beautiful acetate leaves.  The title is placed on one of the sweet banner stickers from the Embellishment kit.

I felt that there was too much white space horizontally, so trimmed the background to add a strip of patterned paper to the right of the main layout.  I ruffled ribbon between the layers and tucked in a flower from the April kit. To finish, I sprinkled gold stars from the Main kit and gold Nuvo drops.

You can see the full process on our YouTube channel today:

I hope I have inspired you to take out some mixed-media to use with a cut file.  You can see all the wonderful June kits here.

Thank you for stopping by.
