This layout was also created for this week's Word Up Wednesday challenge. I challenged the forum members to create a page about one of the seasons and to create either a sentence or phrase using the name of the season. I used "Fall in Love."
I wanted to create a layout with falling leaves, so I cut a bunch of them out using the Leaf it to Me cut file from The Cut Shoppe. I placed them around the page to make it look like they were falling from a tree. Since there is some light blue in the photo, I used some light blue gelato and watercolor to add a bit of blue to the background. I added a few orange and shiny gold splatters as well.
I stitched through every leaf just to add some texture and interest. The stickers in this line are so cute and fun. I was happy to see this fun arrow!
I cut the word "fall" on my Cameo on white cardstock and used gelatos to give it a multi-colored look. I paired it up with the collection's alpha stickers. I wrote my journaling directly on to the background, which is usually how I do my journaling.
I love these berries! They were perfect for tucking under the photo. I also used a few banner/label stickers above the picture. And I had to add gold tangled thread, of course :)
Here's one more look at one of the leaves. I even used the inside cut outs of some of the leaves...I love how they look like little dry leaves or twigs.
Be sure to check out both of these new Photoplay collections in the store!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
