Nathalie with you today -it has been a while since my last post!-, bringing you some inspiration using the “All Angles” cut file. This new cut file was designed by Ashley Horton from the Cut Shoppe exclusively for Scrapbook Nerd, and it is now available for free at the store.
This cut file is great to document all types of memories. Since we have had a super packed summer season, there are plenty of pictures to document, so I chose to put a Summer/water spin to the cut file.
First, I used Distress Oxides to create a watercolor background effect on white cardstock. While that dried, i created the cut out for the page, by adding an offset to the image, and then just cutting about half of it only.
I backed every other one of the triangles with papers from Bella Blvd.’s Secrets of the Sea collections, but opted to also glue some of the negative triangle cut outs as open flaps here and there -a bit of foam adhesive was used to create dimension on the page-.
Once the background was completely dried, it was trimmed by about 1/4 of an inch on each side, and then it was completely glued to one of the papers from the Secrets of the Sea girls collectlion. The cut out was then attached on an angle on the page.
To bring the colors of the water to life, the palette on the clusters and titles for this page were kept to blue, yellow and s few green spots. Since I wanted the picture and background to stand out, I kept the clusters small, and just to the negative spaces on the page. Here is the final layout:
The combination of the mixed media, and the angular cut out are just perfect to document this summer/pool memory. Now that you have seen the cut file in action, it is time to stop by the store to pick up your free copy of the file. I cannot wait to see what you create with it. Remember to tag @Scrapbooknerdca on any of the social media outlets whenever you share your creations!
As always, I am a comment away if you have any questions on how this came together.
