The die cuts not only help reiterate your snowy winter theme, but also act as a placeholder in your title work. Splattered paint helps pull the entire layout together and really adds that extra layer of magic.
First, you’ll need to gather your supplies. Print off a 5x7” photo and choose colorful patterned papers and bright colored winter or Christmas themed embellishments that coordinate with the colors in your photos. If your photo colors don’t play nicely with the products you’d like to use, simply convert it to a black and white photo prior to printing. You’ll also need some oversized white alphabet stickers.
Using the Fuse Creativity System, create three small snowflake die cuts using light pink cardstock a dark pink ink. Then, create one larger snowflake using kraft cardstock with dark brown ink. Create a layered embellishment by adhering one small pink snowflake overtop of the kraft snowflake. Set aside.
Start by building your title in the lower right quadrant of your page. Be sure to leave space between the ‘n’ and ‘w’ to replace the letter ‘o’ with your layered die cut. When clustering your embellishments, keep in mind your theme and the scale of the items. It’s more visually appealing to cluster a small, medium and large embellishment when needing to fill large amounts of space, as shown in the lower left corner.
Next, adhere your photo in the upper right quadrant. Then start adding small clusters of embellishments to the layout. This includes adding the layered die cuts in the title work. Accent the title area further with small felt and/or chipboard snowflakes.
Add a whimsical chipboard frame around one subject in your photo and accent with a cluster of embellishments, including the remaining pink snowflake die cut.
Once the photo is in place and you have your embellishments tacked down, lay a scrap piece of paper or a paper towel over your photo so it is completely covered. I like to use my scissors to weigh it down to ensure it doesn’t move.
Then, finish off your layout by creating the look of a snow fall. Do so, by splattering both white acrylic craft paint that has been slightly thinned out with water. To splatter, firmly hold the brush parallel to the layout and tap the brush lightly with the opposite hand. To avoid paint smearing, allow to dry for 15 – 20 minutes before removing the paper protecting your photo.
