Hello Crate Paper friends! Lorilei here today sharing a fall feeling scrapbook layout! I used the Maggie Holmes Heritage collection with its warm, rich tones and beautiful images!
I started my layout with a white background and chose a matching colour of spray ink to the lavender house from the Heritage chipboard sheet. I puddled the paint around in a large area and added splatters to the outside edge. I backed a large cut file with the wood grain Lifetime paper (my favourite!) and adhered it to the dry painted background with adhesive foam for some dimension and shadow!
I spent most of my time on this layout embellishing! If you are like me, that is often your favourite part of putting together a scrapbook layout. I knew I wanted lots of florals so I first fussy cut some warm yellow flowers from the Margaret paper. On the right side of the wood grain title, I started with the chipboard house that was my inspiration. I added some fussy cut flowers and leaves and then fussy cut the family banner from the Recollection paper. The deep forest greens and warm gold florals remind me of fall! I added a chipboard label to finish off the cluster of embellishments!
On the left side of the layout is where I added my photo. Every fall we try to get outside and take a photo with the fall colours! I added more fussy cut flowers above and beneath the photo and to keep the clusters balanced; I chose smaller scale embellishments since the photo size already balanced the left side of the title. I chose a small chipboard flower in the same lavender tone as the house and then cut a stamp featuring a deer from the Postmarked paper. I stumbled on the sweet little chipboard heart on the Heritage chipboard sheet, and it was the perfect embellishment to finish off my right cluster!
My last touch was to add three of the paper flower roses from the Heritage Embellishment set. I twirled the green wire stem around a small paint brush for a curlicue and added the flowers with American Crafts PVA liquid adhesive to keep them in place!
I absolutely love how my page turned out. The wood grain paper and warm colours from the co-ordinating papers and chipboard instantly gave me the feeling of fall that I wanted for my photo. Thank you so much for joining me today! Happy fall scrapbooking and crafting!
