Hey guys, Laura here today.
I saw this Corn On The Cob file by Paige Evans and knew I had the perfect photo to go with it. You can purchase the file pre-cut on black, white or cream card here.
You can see the video of the layout coming together here.
I coloured my cob with a mix of Shimmerz paints in yellows and greens. My top tip for colouring cut files is if it starts to look weak and flimsy don’t try to pick it up. Leave it flat and let it dry naturally and the integrity of the card will firm up again. If you try and move the card whilst it is sodden with paint the chances are it will tear or rip.
I recently went through all of my white cardstock scraps and patch worked together some 12×12 sheets. I use about 10 different shades and textures of white card so I made sure to mix up the scraps and I have 6 sheets of eclectic card with a tonne of interest and texture which make perfect backgrounds for my simple and minimal scrap style.
I used one of the seams on the background as a guide to add my title… I call it a title – I’ve added MUNCH in different fonts and colours across the page. The corn on the cob overlaps some of them but because I have left the cut file open (or unbacked, if that’s a word?!) you can still work out what it says.
On to the embellishing; boy did I struggle to decide which flair to use! Both would have been fine but I switched back and forth for a good five minutes. I settled on one that said, “it’s dinner time”! I scattered a few acrylic confetti stars around the page, added some tiny word stickers and finished off with a healthy dose of paint splattering. My friend will add name, date and journalling when she gets the album.
Thanks for stopping by!
