Summer Layouts: Creating Drama with Large Titles!
This month I challenged myself to get back into the swing of using my Silhouette Cameo before it gets corroded under layers of dust and rust. I am always so glad I exerted the effort whenever I take advantage of the many digital files available to the Clique.
For my first layout I wanted to use the negative space of a large die cut title. This one is actually one of Clique Kits past kit die cut files from last July! I love the soft pastels and the tiny floral patterns in the Elle’s Studio collection featured in this month’s kit. The acrylic piece is really special too and deserved to be a focal point. Finally, my finishing touch was an add on item-the mirrored hexagons from British company Do Crafts.
Here is another layout with a large title die cut with my Silhouette Cameo using one of the June kit monthly cut files. For this one using the positive image for a white on white textured look I blew the size of the title up really huge. The exclusive cards and one of the 6×6 papers were very sparsely layered behind my photo and title. I wasn’t sure at first how to use the clear acetate words and shapes in the kit but found out my favorite look is when they are layered just as they are adding depth to an otherwise flat page.
Thanks so much for stopping in and enjoy all of the amazing inspiration to follow!
