Laura Rumble – Birds

Hi Guys!

For today’s layout I have used half of Tweet Tweet – a pre-cut cut file designed by Confessions Of A Paper Addict.  I’m all about stretching supplies so being able to get two layouts from one pre-cut has got to be a good thing, right?

I’ve added two borders of white sewing to my white 12×12.  This adds detail and texture but still leaves the white space that I love.

I pulled out some Pretty Little Studio stash.  I kept my supplies in a limited colour palette – mustard, red (and a few shades in between), a touch of black and maroon.  I picked out a flair button as I seem to collect them and not use them.  (My worst scrappy trait!)  I backed the bird cut file with two papers – one a mustard parquet wood grain and the other artistic poppies.  I didn’t like the amount of background paper showing on the poppy paper so I ended up cutting out the individual flowers and overlapping them.  This gave me a solid area of colour to back the bird’s tummy.

I added a piece of chevron acetate to the centre square of my 12×12.  I placed my bird and photo side by side and looked at where I needed to add colour and interest.  The bottom corner of the photo seemed the perfect spot for some poppies and my flair.  Then to balance things out I needed to add a small splash of red at the top too.  I tried adding sequins and enamel dots but I liked it better without.  I did add a couple of word stickers and a tiny title.  My journalling is on the back.  It’s rough scrawl on wonky lines that flowed out in whichever way the words wanted.  I didn’t need to be concerned about how it looked with the design or what anyone would think when they read it.

I’ll be back later in the month with the other half of the cut file!!
