This is a personal blog. All editorial content and projects are intellectual property of http://canoncreativegirl.blogspot.com/. I do receive financial compensation and material product from Pink Paislee to develop my craft posts, but all ideas and opinions are my own.
I also added in some Mister Huey's black spray mist and some lovely gold foam Thickers from the Citrus Bliss collection.
One of my favorite techniques to do on a layout is pattern piecing. To create this layout I first cut the Desktop Patterned Paper using a background cut file, then chose other papers from the collection to piece behind the open spaces before adhering it all down to a piece of white cardstock.
I get asked all the time what kind of adhesive I like to use when working with cut files and pattern piecing. I like to use the American Crafts Sticky Thumb brand liquid pva glue. It has a twist tip on it that allows me to place adhesive down in small areas. Here is a closeup of my layout after I adhered everything down.
