Hello Authentique fans. Heather here today sharing a sweet layout using the Glistening Collection. I really wanted to make my own "quilt" background using as many papers that I could.
For this layout, I punched a LOT of hexagons using the Fiskars Hexagon Squeeze Punch in Large. I chose to use the 6x6 Bundle rather than the 12x12 papers, because the patterns were shrunk down in size.
To get all of the hexagons attached, I ran each of them through my Xyron 1.5" Create-a-Sticker, and simply stuck them down one-by-one. To start, just placed one hexagon at an angle (this way it won't look "wonky" if your shapes aren't perfectly straight), then fan out the other shapes from there. I started with a square piece of paper, then once all of the shapes were placed, I trimmed it down so that all of the edges were perfect.
Then mount your photos on the Foundations paper, trim, and place embellishments around the photos. In this case, I chose Die Cut Kraft Doilies and Vintage Wood Snowflakes that I inked with London Fog Memento Ink.
Lastly, I cut a journaling box from the Enhancements paper, and trimmed a piece of Dazzle to make a banner for the title. Wrote some journaling, and added a cute alpha (with another inked snowflake for an "O"), and the layout was complete.
I hope this helps you find new ways that you too can use punches to create some amazing projects.
