Hello friends, and welcome to my first project of 2020! I am so excited to get back to making and sharing pages with you all, and I’m starting off with a layout about our Disneymoon using the super lovely Unforgettable collection.
I started off off with a cutfile that is pure Disney magic and I backed it with some 6×8 papers from the paper pad. I cheated a bit and used my Silhouette to cut out the insides of the letters so I wouldn’t have had to cut them by hand and it worked out really well. Before attaching anything to the patterned paper I chose to use as the background, I used some acrylic paints to add some color and interest to my layout, and I added swipes of pink, light teal, coral, and a pale orange. After setting that off to dry, I went to work on the rest of my layout.
The photo I printed is of the two of us on the teacup ride at the Magic Kingdom wearing our bride and groom Mickey and MInnie Mouse ears, and I chose to print it out in black and white since it was faded and kind of grainy. First, I matted my photo on a bunch of matching patterned papers and added a torn edge because it’s not a Tazhiana layout without a ripped edge somewhere. Then I added some foam tape to the back of the photo so that I could slide a tag with some journaling behind it. I grabbed a bunch of ephemera from the die cut pack and created a sort of floral wreath behind where my photo was going to sit. I even added some foam dots and a piece of flair to add some more texture and dimension to the layout. It all worked out really well and was incredibly easy after all the hard work of picking what I want to use.
After attaching my photo and the LOVE die cut piece to the background, I went ahead and added my title using the foam title sticker pack and I added some enamel dots to add a bit more color and called this layout good. I love how it came out so, so much and it was a blast to play with color and paint.
There’s a process video for the page linked underneath this blog post if you want to watch it all come together! I hope you enjoyed my project and you give this technique a try. Seriously, pick it and stick it. That freedom to create is life changing. Till next time, keep it crafty friends.
