Hello SC friends!! Kelly here to share a fun way to use your Silhouette to make your own background or large accent for you layout.
For my layout, using lots of new Darling Dear papers, I was inspired by this piece
I saw on Pinterest. I loved the way the composition of the arrows and
knew I wanted to create a similar layout for my page. Rather than cut
out lots of arrows from different patterned papers, etc. I decided to do
a negative cut as a whole instead.
The first step do recreate this look is to choose several different
arrow cut files. Open the first file and select the entire image.
Repeat this same process with several different arrow cut files to add variety to your arrow background.
You'll want to mix
up the arrows so that there are larger and smaller ones for variety and
interest. Play around with it until you get the look you're after. Once
you have all of your arrows moved around and resized, you are ready to
cut your background, place the cut background onto your intended layout
background. Adhere the cut background with repositionable adhesive.
Now, use scraps
to add detail underneath each arrow cut. Adhere the scraps carefully,
making sure to line them up with each arrow.
After you're finished adhering the scraps, you can
adhere the arrow background with foam adhesive for added dimension.
that's it, you're all finished! A simple and easy way to create a custom
background/large accent for your layouts. I hope you'll give this a
