Terri Morris – Dead Sea Swim – Paige Evans Seashell Cut file

Terri here, I’m back with another summer inspired layout (although the photos were actually taken in January 2018). This Seashell cut file designed by Paige Evans is brilliant for creating a striking focal point to your layouts. It is available in the shop as a pre cut file in a variety of different cardstocks. I chose my go to, which is white.

I covered the shell in a good coat of gesso to protect the cardstock and give some texture for the Shimmerz paints to grip to. I used mostly Bubblegum pink and Pink-o de mayo Shimmerz. Both painted on with a brush on to the cut file and then splatters both on the shell and the background. To tie in the blue from the photos I also added splashes of blue mist .

The shell was then attached to the cardstock background using foam pads to give dimension. I matted two photos from our trip to the Dead Sea in Jordan on to patterned paper at a jaunty angle, overlapping them slightly.

To continue with the beach theme I used stickers and ephemera from the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes ‘Sunny Days’ collection along with some fish acrylic pieces. I used foam pads with some of the ephemera to add depth on top of the seashell.

Due to ongoing health and personal issues, I’m afraid I am closing the shop for 6 months.  I very much hope to be back but I will only be able to judge this once I have gone through the next few months.  All outstanding orders will go out next week (commencing 15th June).  I will be keeping the blog side of the website going and I may pop up on social media sometimes but I may have to take a fair bit of time out while I process everything and work through treatments etc.  I know that particularly my pre-cut customers will be disappointed and I am so sorry to let people down but sometimes being strong involves having to give something up.  It’s not been an easy decision I can tell you.  Thank you so much to everyone that has supported me in the last 4 years, in particular my wonderful design team.  Seeing my designs on layouts capturing people’s precious memories is something I will always treasure.  Best wishes xx
