Muted colors, inspiring die-cuts... a bit moody today!
Hi again Sizzix fans!
I can't stop being amazed how easy it is to create a layout using Sizzix dies to make some main parts of the composition! If you have your background done and papers chosen - and a have a look on your dies - you will always come with plenty of ideas! I got inspired by very subtle,muted color palette of 7 Dots Studio Papers (Queen's Heart Collection) and 2 lovely Sizzlits Dies from Scrappy Cat collection: Vintage Doily and Flower - Bloom with Leaves.
I wouldn't be myself if I didn't try something a bit different. This time instead of creating a sweet, pretty flower as suggested on die packaging (Bloom with Leaves) I used the cut out element as it was... somehow it reminded me a fern leaf and was a perfect balance for the Vintage Doilies I used on the same layout.
What is more, I kept a part of the cut out leftover and used in the composition too... I love the effect - how cool is this?
After adding 2-3 pieces of paper, some splashes of paint, stamping and a bit of embellishments my "Hard Day" layout was ready!
Here is the list of the supplies I used:
- 658506 - Sizzix Sizzlits Die - Vintage Doily
- 658501 - Sizzix Sizzlits Die - Flower, Bloom w/Leaves 3-D
- 7 Dots Studio - Queen's Heart Collection
- 7 Gypsies - numeral stamps
