Delicate Layers Scrapbook Page

Hi everyone, Mou here with today's post.

Sizzix Die Cutting Tutorial: Delicate Layers by Mou Saha

I created this layout with a lot of delicate diecuts, one layer at a time.

Using the Doily Thinlits die and the Big Shot machine with Multiprpose Platform, I diecut a few doilies out of white cardstock.

I lay the cardstock doilies around on my layout background and using the doilies as stencils, I spray misted the background with watercolor.

I saved the diecut doilies to use later on the layout.

To create my layers, I diecut more pieces from white cardstock using Thinlits dies Damask # 2, Die Set 2 Pk Doliy And Doily Border # 2, Die Set 5 Pk This & That Charming, and Decorative Strip Alphabet Die Stenciled.

I attached the Decorative Strip Alphabet Die Stenciled along the right edge of the misted background and then added the Damask # 2 diecut. One word of caution would be to be patient while removing the diecut from the diecut to keep the intricate delicate design intact.

I splattered gold paint on the page and let it dry. Before adding another diecut, I layered a piece of vellum in between. The vellum softened the details of the design from the previous layer which could otherwise have become overwhelming. Then I added one of the Doily Thinlits diecut which I had used as a stencil earlier. The color on the diecut from the misting also helps to separate the layers visually and break up the stark white from the previous layer. I added the doily diecut from Doliy And Doily Border # 2, and then a smaller piece of vellum on top before adding my photo.

I added bits and pieces from the This & That Charming set to create spaces for some simple journaling.

Here's a close-up of the cluster of layers with completed journaling.
Hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and would bring out your beautiful Thinlits dies and play!
