Staying with my theme for the month of using die cuts / punches ...
I gathered my scraps and triangle punch
Punched the shapes
Then I started to paper-piece the triangles the the card stock, trying my best not to have two colours next to each over.
Then using sheets that I had cut to use in a previous layouts, I layered a few sheets to add some depth to the layout.
Backed the photos with some scraps of paper.
I inked the edges of the layers - to help it life the papers from the patterned background.
I wanted to use these stamps from Studio L2E and I first stamped onto pink paper, with black ink.
then changed my mind and stamped it onto some blue instead and added the date.
When it came to adding the title, I realised that I didn't have the necessary letters from the alphabet sheet and was missing a "N" - so I used "W" instead ...
cutting the right hand side off …
and it perfect … well not perfect but it works for me.
I added some enemel dots, wood veneer, and bits from the ephemera pack, and puffy stickers. I did end up covering a large area of the background pattern but I'm OK with that.
And here is my finish layout,
Why not get your punches out and see if you can do a background using your scraps.
You can see my other layouts using this collection here on the HLM blog.
