When 2 Become 3

Hi there!!

Just popping in today with a super quick share of a page I created the other day using a fun free silhouette cut file from The Hip Kit Club which you can get here.

I totally got the idea of the cut file like this from this YouTube video by the very talented Raquel Bowman! I love how she has laid out all the hearts on the diagonal across the background and took the XO from the file I used, copied, pasted and resized. As I went I welded each XO to the last one :) Love how this turned out!

I cut the file on gesso'd white cardstock and then sprinkled water all over it with a paintbrush. While the water was still wet I sprayed some Heidi Swapp colour shine in both Navy and Teal onto my craft mat, added a little water to make it runnier and then sprinkled the mist all over the wet cut file. I love the watercolour effect I achieved and that there are still bits of white peeking through all over the file!

I have used papers from the Maggie Holmes Shine collection and also some of the florals from the Open Book collection (a couple of which had been digital files that I have printed and cut also using my Cameo). I added some tiny word stickers from a Tim Holtz sticker book I have and added some silver stitching to each. A tiny bit of journalling and some black Heidi Swapp colour shine as sprinkles to finish the LO off!

Here are a few close ups! I can't believe that this photo was taken over 6 years ago already - time sure does fly!

That's it for me for today! I had a heap of fun putting this page together!

Happy scrapping and happy Sunday :)
