This week, we have asked the DT to showcase the beautiful Pink Paislee’s “Auburn Lane” collection in their projects. This collection has a fall color palette, modern designs, and some beautiful floral illustrations that are perfect to embellish a page. The secret is to fussy cut each of the floral images so that they can be used as decorations in your page.
The floral images on paper #3 and #6 of the collection were carefully cut (fussy cut) so that they can be used as layered embellishments that form a large cluster of flowers in the page.
The secret to creating this embellishments is to detail cut the images from the paper. In this case, paper #3 has a dark background, so each image was cut around its edge, so that none of the dark background shows in the image. At the same time, paper #6 has a white background, so a very small white border was left around the image – this just helps to separate the images when layering them on the layout. The following process video will showcase how this page came together:
All those fussy cut florals are the focal point of this page, and bring plenty of interest to the layout that minimizes the use of other embellishments.
Really love how this page turned out using the large fussy cut floral elements. All the florals create the perfect background for this cherished memory of my family.
I hope this inspires you to create your own embellishments by fussy cutting embellishments off your patterned papers.
