"Even Superheroes Need Naps" | Cocoa Vanilla Studio DT
Hey y’all! Laura Alberts here again with a fun way to use up those scraps
at the end of a project! I find cut files are brilliant for finishing off
those little scraps you might otherwise throw away and with a giant title
like this one from COAPA, those scraps can really shine! I have really enjoyed scrapping tons of
photos with the new Legendary collection, but this mixed media style background paper has to be my absolute
favorite in the entire collection. It’s called “Offbeat” and I think it framed this cut file beautifully!
I kept the embellishing pretty simple on this layout, so as not to compete
with the photo or title design, but I did squeeze in a few stars (and
stripes!) anyway. Stars are a great shape for boy layouts and one that has
become my go-to for masculine pages. Clustering them is super simple, they
tuck into each other at the corner of a label or word phrase sticker (or
both!) as well as peeking out from behind larger design elements.
The best part of any layout for me is always those tiny details that finish
it off. In this case, I used a combination of enamel dots and Nuvo drops to add a bit of interest to my clusters and then added
to the splattered background with even more splatters in gold! I hope you
find inspiration to use your scraps too, whether it’s backing a cut file or
layering behind your photo. To see this layout come together, check out the
process video below!
