Layering is an effective and popular way of adding dimension to a project. Today the Design Team have come up with some Tips for Layering that might be helpful to you when adding layers to your creations.

For adding volume to my project I used collectables, fussy cut images and stamped embellishments. I also added sisal to make the composition lighter and airy.
When fussy cutting dont be afraid to layer in shapes, like I have done here in circles with everything coming out from that!!

Love Always Layout by Jowilna Nolte
Layer with a purpose.
For this layout I added layered clusters of flowers just below my photograph to ground the photo.
The layering gives the photo somewhere to sit and also frames the image beautifully.
You can also layer ink colours like I did, using two different shades of pink for interest.
Layer stamping on top of inked backgrounds to add interest.
So there are several ways to add layering to your layouts and cards – but always have a purpose for what you are doing.

A helpful layering tip I have always worked with is not being afraid to cut stickers or collectables in half to layer behind or underneath focal points and to build depth. By doing so you are able to get more from your supplies and make them go further.
Arranging the layers in slightly angled way gives lots of dimension to your work.Add the embellishments/die cuts in different levels to give more depth to your composition,you can also use foam tape for the top most layer.

Textured Dies…whats not to love about them! They add that little bit of extra detail to a project that adds to the “wow factor” as well as being so quick and easy to use. Today the Design Team are showcasing two new Textured Dies released this month: DD483 Texture ross Cross and DD482 Texture Netting…
DD483 Texture Criss Cross

“Dream Big” Layout with Textured Dies ~ By Renee Aslette
For this week’s group post I wanted to show you how you can use the DD483 Decorative Die Texture Criss Cross by cutting it out and then cutting it up and using it on different areas of the layout, rather than using it in one piece. I used GC102 Glitter Cardstock – Steel.
Here is how the layout turned out!

Art Foam Storage Tin by Jowilna Nolte
I am not one for making too many of my own flowers, but can I just mention how utterly addictive this product and process has been.
I am totally in love with the ease and beauty of it all – and may end up making way too many flowers for future projects.
I created some pretty flowers to spruce up a storage tin in a few easy steps.
