I have a fun technique to share with you today using a large digital cut file (or hand cut shape) and washi!
I used washi to fill in the backing of the leaves! I put strips of washi side by side on an angle on white cardstock then traced the shape of each side of each leaf and fussy cut the half. Each half was then glued to the back of the digital cut file and wham! A colorful fall leaf! Or apple, or Christmas tree or black bat for Halloween? How cool would that be?
This close up gives you a close look at the torn washi ends that add a fun organic feel to the layout. Even the distressed Core'dinations cardstock with the "veins" in it really add to the look, don't you think? And the wonderful Twinery twine!
Also adding to the organic, Fall feeling are mist splatters and some SpiegelMom Scraps sequins!! Love me my SMS sequins mixes! Jody makes the best mixes! Speaking of which, be sure to check out her November releases! There are a million new AWESOME mixes!! Can I just tell you; wood grain sequins!
I am not adverse to handwriting on a layout but I really wanted more of a camouflaged look for my journaling and something that stood out against all those leaves on that Simple Stories patterned paper. So many fun little embellies to add to the story I'm telling!
I think it's easier to see how the washi technique came together on my process video! Enjoy! Thanks for stopping in today! I hope you had a chance to subscribe to my YouTube, if not, join me! It's been a fun ride with lots of fun things to come in 2018! AND when I get to 1,500 subscribers, I am going to a a giveaway!!
