Sarah Packer – #squadgoals

Hi Lovelies,

Sarah here today to share with you a layout I created using the lovely mandala cut file (available to buy as a download from the shop or as a pre-cut element). I decided to use the cut file as a stencil for this one and used the lovely Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks (also available in the shop!) I chose colours that would compliment the paper collection I was going to use, which was Hustle and Heart by Amy Tangerine.

Using a blending tool, I created a rainbow effect with the distress oxides, blending colours as I went. I then flicked some water all over the page to get the distressed look. I trimmed the white cardstock and distressed the edges and mounted it onto a gutted piece of patterned paper. I mounted my photo on a contrasting piece of patterned paper and raised it up on foam pads. Once I had my photo in place I used some of the ephemera to decorate – perfect photo for using that pesky tiger I never thought I’d get to use!! I added some detail at the top of the page using a couple of the manufacturing strips and a puffy heart. I added my title using some Thickers and then embellished the page with a large puffy heart and some enamel dots.

Why don’t you give using a cut file as a stencil a go?!

Until next time…
