Welcome to today’s blog post with me Jowilna. I am sharing a single page layout with you today using the Butterfly Garden Collection, with an interesting twist using hot foil.
For my layout background I switched my traditional white background for this golden caramel coloured stripe.
To add interest I used my oink mirror foil to create some striking elements for my page. There’s a number of ways you can achieve this look.
I love how the foil picks up on the pink and purple in the paper but also adds an unexpected element of surprise because of its bold colour and shine – just as bold and gorgeous as my friend in the photo.
I apply gel medium through my stencil and left it to dry, once the gel easy just tacky I added my foil to the gel and rubbed it off using my boned folder.
Then quickly peel off the sheet of foil to reveal this stunning effect. I cut the chevron pieces up to separate them and then added them to my layout.
Secondly I added some ephemera bits from my pack.
I understand the the border is a necessary evil, but i don’t like the thick white border around the elements. But i solve it in a few easy steps…
I simply use my scissors to trim the excess white around the elements smaller, almost like fussy cutting them. This makes for a much neater and nicer looking element.
And in a few easy steps I created a layout I love with this stunning range and a few clever ways of using my stash.
Until next time – live creatively.
