Making The Shaker Pockets
The first thing I done was turn the file over and draw round it on top of a piece of acetate and then stuck it to the cut file using some glossy accents glue.
I created pockets by using foam risers around the cut file and then I filled the pockets with sequins and stuck a piece of white dimpled card as my backing to keep all of the sequins in place.
Creating The Background
To make my back ground I used a piece of diamond textured bazzill basics card.
I cut this to 11½ inch square and distressed the edges. I gutted a piece of peach and cream paper and stuck the two pieces together.
I created a rain like effect by using a stencil and some Vicki Boutin iridescent glitter texture paste.
Putting It All Together
So, once everything was together I stuck the umbrella onto my layout.
I added my photo to the bottom right hand corner of the page with some pieces of 3×4 card with distressed edges.
I then tucked in the flowers and the little perspective flowers. Next came the title…
I stuck the word ‘sunshine’ round the umbrella first and then I knew where to stick the ‘my’ above it.
I added the ‘on a rainy day’ to the bottom left of the page not straight to also mimic the rain fall, lastly to complete the layout came the perspectives and clouds!
Sunshine On A Rainy Day
I really loved this cutfile. I plan to use this file again when my daughter goes to friendsfest next month, I’m going to cut more out but smaller to imitate the scene with the sofa and the umberellas….I let you know how it turns out….
Until next time crafters…thanks for reading
