Hello friends! Thanks so much for joining me today! I have a fall-inspired mixed media layout today to share! Autumn is my favourite season, and I could happily make pages and pages using autumnal colours!
I started my layout with two photos that tell an end of Autumn story for me. I used the photos for my colour choices and went from there. Of course, I chose the neutral art crayons as my main tool for creating colour and texture oin the background! I added Vicki Boutin Gesso to my white background and then began adding multiple layers of Art Crayon turned into puddles of paint. I used all three rich, warm tones in the Neutral Art Crayon set and brought in the warm rust colour from the Warm Art Crayon set. I watered down some Vicki Boutin Gold Glaze, splattered it onto my page while the color puddles were slightly damp and let it blend in a bit. It added just the right amount of sparkle!
While the background was drying, I cut some pretty leaves on my Silhouette for extra embellishments. I love to add touches of white to some of my layouts, especially when I have lots of layers in mind! The photo below shows the leaves on top of the sticker “washi” tapes from the Wildflower & Honey collection! Love the shimmery foil these stickers have!
I used all kinds of stars from Wildflower & Honey to embellish my page. I added the your story sticker on top of my photo to use part of the photo as my title.
I love how my page turned out! It feels rich and warm, and the layers remind me of a pile of freshly raked leaves! Here in Alberta, Canada, we are feeling the cold and have had a few snowfalls. Making this layout was a great reminder to me about how we can “be” in any season, or return to a moment in time because of the power of memory keeping!
Have a great week and happy scrapping!
