Go Large!

Hello again everyone, Giselle here and it’s my turn to take inspiration from a class taught by Niki at a recent GoGo Dayaway. This time it’s a layout using a large embellished shape, a technique which offers plenty of choice regarding the shape you’d like to use.

I decided to use large circles because they would fill the page well and it would be relatively easy to incorporate the photo and title that I had in mind for the layout. I started out by cutting 2 circles, using my Silhouette, from some dark blue cardstock and centering them on the white background. I embellished the inner circle with some tiny buttons that I’ve had in my stash for years – this was a great way to finally use them! Glossy Accents work well for this.

The second circle is wider and again, I raided my stash to fill it with stickers, enamel dots, puffy stickers, buttons and a few die cuts as well. I painted a few of the embellishments with White Gold Starlights metallic paint to add some spots of ‘bling’
for contrast against the dark blue.

Having left the layout on my desk for a an hour or so, I returned and thought that the two circles looked a bit stark on the white background so I trimmed the cardstock and mounted it on some blue patterned paper.

The photo was mounted on two coordinating papers and added to the right side of the page, with a few more embellishments to break up the straight edges. I then added my title and called it done!
I hope you get the opportunity to try this as it’s a fun technique and, more importantly, you might be able to use some of that well loved stash that you’ve had for years!
Happy scrapping!
