I have been really enjoying the arrival of Fall here in our neck of the woods and it has made for SO many wonderful memories! I have worked hard to preserve the story of those memories this season and thus, have another Fall themed layout to share with you.
I used yet another Paige Taylor Evans cut file (shocking, I know! LOL!) and used it as a mask to create a more organic background for the layout. Additionally, I flipped over the mask and fussy cut out a few of the leaves to use to embellish the layout thus tying in the background to the embellishment clusters. The fine spray of mist was supplemented with larger droplets to add additional color and more visual interest.
There is a mix of Fall embellishments from Cocoa Daisy, Simple Stories, Carta Bella, anything fall to build up the three clusters. The blue foam of the gold Thicker letters from 1Canoe2 worked perfectly with the bluey-green fleece Mia is wearing as well as the more teal hues in the sequins and patterned papers I chose to use.
Two of the leaves which I cut apart from the digital cut file were backed with vellum and stitched down the center vein to add an opaque look to the leaves. You can see in that close up the lovely simmer of the Puppy Dog Tails sequins mix from SpiegelMom Scraps. These sequins tie the bottom of the layout to the top as the colors are repeated top and bottom.
To add to the organic feel of the layout, the edges of each square have been "quilted" and distressed a little bit. You can see one of the two quilted shaker pockets I created using SpiegelMom Scraps sequins mixes. They add a fun element to the page and mimic the movement of falling leaves.
Sometimes it is easier to watch the process come together than it is read it, especially for those of you who are more visual! Enjoy the video!
Thanks for joining me today! Take care!
