This month on the blog I am sharing a layout for which I have backfilled a cut file. This technique was taught at one of the recent GoGo Dayaway events.
I chose the barcode background from JustNick Studio as I wanted a bit of a challenge! I shrunk the cut file down a little so that I could trim the edges off as I wanted to give it a border
I then inked the edges of a piece of white cardstock using Tim Holtz Distress oxides and flicked water onto it using a paint brush.
Whilst waiting for this to dry I back filled the cut file with strips of Cocoa Vanilla (You Rock and Totally Rad) papers and added foam pads to lift it off the card stock for added dimension.
I added my photos, which I had layered with some of the papers and embellished with a star theme. I used some that I cut from the Cocoa Vanilla papers and some from the ephemera packs, chipboard, and a few wooden stars from my stash. I also added another two ephemera pieces and the wooden “Awesome” from the Cocoa Vanilla wood veneer formed my title.
Hope this inspires you to try backfilling cut files!
Until next month…. Happy Scrapping! 🙂
