Fall in Washington Layout

Sunday, October 14, 2018

Here is a new layout I made for the Scrapbook & Cards Today Blog!
I started by die cutting my Fall cut file from white textured cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo 3. Then I backed each of the leaves with patterns from Pick-Me-Up Paper 10 and Paper 21. I love using non-traditional colors that still could work for fall: pink, aqua, mint? Why not!

 Once I had all of the leaves backed I backed the entire word with a section from Paper 12 which includes brown on it - more fitting for an autumnal page!
 I chose Paper 05 for my background. To create more interest and texture on it, I used a large doily stencil and scraped modeling paste over it at the intersection of all the patterns. Once the background dried I placed the title at an angle across the paper following the diagonal line of the printed design.

I tucked a family photo taken in fall foliage under the title and then finished the title with Chipboard Thickers. I machine stitched over the Thickers to help them stay in place permanently.
 To embellish I added floral Chipboard Stickers trimmed in half around the edges and machine stitched over them. I added a few more Chipboard Stickers here and there but didn't add a whole lot more - the title is the main embellishment!
I wrote journaling next to the photo with a few more floral Ephemera Die Cuts stitched underneath to finish up this layout. I hope you are inspired to check out my Fall cut file as well as my Pick-Me-Up collection with Pink Paislee! Thanks for stopping by!
