Layout tutorial: fussy cutting to create a unique background

Hello everyone, it's Giorgia here today.

Today I would love to show you a layout with a DIY background made with fussy cutting technique.
I cutted all these amazing Altair Art butterflies to create an eye catching layout.

As background paper I chose a light blue paper from new collection Flower Harmony, to mimic the sky.
I decided to keep the overall design clean, because the background is really full, so the layout is embellished with only two stickers and an enamel heart: 



 Altair Art has a huge assortment of butterflies that you can fussy cut to use as embellishments: I chose to use the Sunrise butterflies, they seem watercolored and they are stunning!


To create the background you will need 7 strips of Sunrise butterflies: in each strip there are 7 butterflies. For each layer on the background you will need 6 butterflies; keep the remaining butterfly (keep each time a different one) to create the 8th layer.
When you fussy cut the butterflies you can choose to leave a tiny border all around or not: in this case I prefer not to. To cut all the butterflies you will need about 2 hours... it is a long work but it worth it!


 I preferred to cut one strip at the time and adhere the butterflies, so I won't add twice by mistake the same butterfly in one raw. To glue them I added tacky glue only in the centre, so I can lift the wings up to make the butterflies "fly" and create dimension and movement.



 I added a word/quote sticker to each butterfly. You can find premade stickers like this or you can create your own making a table in a word document, this is how I made mine! You can write your own words, print the document and cut all the tiny words. I also have a machine that create stickers, so I run the sheet in the machine and made it sticky - so useful!

These are the paper I used, you can find them here.



I hope you like my layout and give it a try on this kind of background technique!

A presto, ciao
