”Special” Layout by Rikki G

When I start layering, I look at all the fussy cutting and try to give them some direction and flow….

With this layout I sort of weaved them around the photo and quote.

To help that I used the flower and leaf spray to direct your eye around the page.

There are a few things I love about Fussy Cutting.  It is an affordable way to stretch the capabilities of the papers and it allows for individual creativity.

In this layout I combined Fussy Cutting with Die Cutting and Stickers to coordinate the products and create a layered cluster.

I started the process by die cutting lots of flower die cuts from MOSAIC STROKE (Reverse).

Then I fussy cut some large flowers from SOFT PASTEL.

I layered the fussy cut flowers on first in a tear-drop shape.

Then I added the die cut flowers in as well.  On top and underneath the already organised flowers.

After I had the base of my layers prepared I added my photo, bunting, stickers and title.
