Hello everyone! It's Laura here, and today I am so thrilled to be back sharing my second layout this month, this time using a cut file.
I loved all the designs, but the woodsy, leafy look of this frame in particular stood out to me. In 2014 I was lucky enough to do some traveling in Europe, and I have been using the Hello Beautiful kit to scrap some photos from my time in Germany. In this case I used a photo of my mom and me at a castle we visited.
I decided to cut out the frame as large as possible on a piece of 12x12 paper, and weave in some roses I cut from the patterned paper in the Hello Beautiful kit. I used the pink ledger paper as my background and added a bit of mixed media water color to the background.
To really make the page special I took a photo of the castle we visited and edited it in photoshop so it was a black silhouette, and made my own custom die cut to line the inside of the frame. My goal was to make it match the black border and look like the vines were growing up and around the outline of the castle. The mixed media helped blend it in with the frame.
A few embellishments from the kit helped finished off this special page, and I'm happy to have another part of this trip documented in my scrapbook.
