Using texture on cut files | Vicki Parker

Hey GoGo friends, it’s Vicki here with a new layout for the month. Our technique today is to use texture on cut files and I decided to try something a little different. My immediate thought was to grab a stencil and use white texture pasted on a white cut file and then paint it. However, I had some Dazzlerz dimensional paste from Shimmerz in my stash and I decided to spread that over my cut file word to add shimmer.

My title word was Happiness and I used the Impact font to cut it on my silhouette onto a dark teal cardstock before adding the Dazzlerz. I also put some white gesso on my patterned paper before brayering some pink shimmerz onto it along with some splatters in the same colour for the background. This is the full layout and there are some close ups below. If you want to see more of my process for this, please watch the video here where you’ll be able to see me make the whole layout (speeded up obviously)!

The close ups show the shimmer on the title whilst still showing the colour of the original cardstock – it worked really well.



Thanks for looking and I hope it gives you a new technique to try.
