Hi everyone. I'm here today to tell you how I survived a strong desire to fussy cut a bunch of teeny tiny flowers from the Wildflowers paper for this scrapbooking layout.
I used the PixScan mat and my Silhouette CAMEO. I took a photo of the image, imported it into Silhouette software and traced each flower. I sent it to the cutter and within minutes, each flower was individually cut just like that!
Look at those delicate little flowers! At this point, I wasn't sure exactly how I'd use them because the stems were posing a problem. It would be weird to just place them scattered on the page.
Then it hit me! I used them to frame my photo. What a fun, eye-catching way to draw you in to the photo.
As I said, I decided to use them to create a frame around my photo (I used a 3" circle photo). To do this, I added tape adhesive to the back of my photo and randomly started placing the first layer of photos. Once I had the first layer, I was a bit more selective on choosing color placement and length of the flowers. I kept working at it until I liked what I saw. Then I adhered it to the page using foam dimension adhesive.
I added some wooden leaves behind the photo to add more weight to the right side after adding the title on the left.
I added additional clusters around the page, including the title, sub title and a flower box at the bottom to pull it all together.
