Terri Morris – Everyday Real Life – Arrow Mesh Technique Tuesday

This is a little bit of a different project for me as it’s a double page spread and not something I tend to do very often. I have previously done them for classes and other DT projects but it is definitely not my go to.
This fantastic ‘Arrow Mesh’ background cut file is super versatile. So much so that the DT have all taken on the challenge of doing something different with it. 

I cut the file from Kraft cardstock originally, then I wanted to split it across the page so simply cut it in to a smaller and larger piece as you can see from the photos.

I added gold texture paste through a stencil to some of the kraft arrows left over from the original cut. I also used one as a template to cut arrows from Vicki Boutin Lets Wander 6×8 paper pad. Rather than backing the cutfile as I often do this time I adhered it flat to the patterned paper and then added the arrows on top using foam pads.

Double pages are a great way to scrap multiple photos, I managed to get 9 on to this page. None of them are focal photos and they all tell the story of our visit to the medina in Fes, Morocco. With such a busy cut file as decoration I felt it was important not to overload the page with too many pieces of ephemera. Just a large title and a few fussy cut polaroids here and there.

Thank you for joining us on the blog today, check back regularly to see what the other DT members have been up to. We love to see your creations so please don’t forget to tag us on Facebook and Instagram.
Happy Scrapping!
