I started by cutting the cut file out of white cardstock, and then backing it with patterned papers from Echo Park Pool Party collection. I wanted the cut file to stand out a bit, so I added one large strip of black paint across the top section of the layout, as well as some vertical splatters. Foam tape was added to the cut file before adhering it to the painted background to give it some extra dimension.
Patterned papers used in backing the H, P and Y were cut into circles and added down the page, to create a bit more interest to the layout, some stamped circles was also added.
My photo was cut into a circle and adhered in place with foam tape.
I finished the layout off with some fussy cut flowers, die-cuts and chipboard stars.
I hope you like my layout today and it has inspired you to create your own.
Thanks for stopping by :) xx
