Except for the journaling, this is my favorite comleted layout for the Cream of The Crop Weekend over at Have Your Way With Paper. It's not that I don't like my handwriting, it's just that my spacing was off and I just don't like that, that's all.The About Fall (#4) Challenge wa to create a layout stating what I love about fall. I could have done a layout without pictures, but I couldn't resist using these amazing fall pictures of my son.
I used Crate Paper's Lemon Grass line for this layout. I love this line because it is so versatile. It's also a wonderful fall paper to use as well. You can create a wonderful fall page without it being too dark or dull. And THAT, I love!
For the word "fall" I used my favorite letters....Thickers! For the "Oh" I used CLoud 9's foil edged letters.
I did a little inking and sanding on this layout too. I sanded the edges of the pictures and the striped paper as well. I think it adds a little texture to it. I used my black fine tipped marker to add some doodling as well. Pop dots were used to lift the flower for some fun dimension! I layered like this: pop dot, flower, pop dot, flower. I love the effect.
