I have used a cut file from the Silhouette Design Store (Happy Rainbow). Once I had cut the rainbow I them added machine stitching to each rainbow piece (you could hand stitch this too), I loving adding texture to my layouts and sewing on your layout is a great way to do that.
I then used the reverse of the Wild One paper (yellow and left over after cutting the rainbow) and cut the Happy off set. I cut the actual letters in white cardstock. This is added under the rainbow which I attached with foam tape to create dimension.
I added phrase sentiments from the Accessory Sticker sheet that tied in with my theme and photo. I also added these with foam tape to add even more dimension. I LOVE the Clear Stickers especially the mixed media elements (It saves so much time and mess lol) and I have added a contrasting green and orange paint brush stroke clear sticker under the yellow title.
I next added my photo matting it on Off Beat paper (blue star side) and added with foam tape. I then tucked under Die Cut Ephemera elements. How cute is the geometric bear! I added some more clear stickers and Enamel Dots.
I finished off with a light splatter of black paint on the white cardstock. I love how this turned out and such a sweet photo of my boy and his pup documented!
Thank you for stopping by, if you have any questions about this layout please leave them in the comments and I will get back to you. Have a wonderful week!
