Cut a Rug

OK so maybe don't cut a rug, but this week at Frosted Designs we are cutting up photos and pictures.  I love the look of creating mosaics and blocks with photos but it often a technique I forget to use.  I was excited to create a layout for this week's challenge and really had fun with this.  Head on over to Frosted Designs to see the other projects created by the design team this week.  Seriously the ladies outdid themselves this week and there is some great inspiration over there.
I cut my photo to look like a window pane so it emphasized the main portion of the photo.  Other than cutting up the photo I did a lot of wet distressing.  This may be one of my new favorite techniques!  It is so fun and I love the dimensional effect that it gives.  A lot of inspiration for this layout came from the Swirlydoos blog post demonstrating wet distressing.


  1. Cassie... this LO is soooo stunning! The black and white photo with the bright colors behind ... and the way you cut the photo... the combination is gorgeous!!

  2. Cassie I always enjoy your postings. You always manage to create in a way that is special and unique! I love the colors your chose for your layout against the black and white picture! Love the crumpled background paper with the misting.

  3. That's really clever - great idea. The page looks great.
