My last layout of the year was for the September sketch challenge on the Scrapbooking forum of Craft Talk, on the docrafts site The theme was Autumn, and this was the sketch:
Here's my layout. It's OK, but it bothers me that the paper and ribbon feature different leaves to those in the photo. Yes, I really am that fussy. Now you know why it takes me so long!
What I used
Paper/card: DCWV textured cardstock, Scrapperdashery "All the leaves are brown" double sided paper.
Embellishments: Jolee's Boutique "Fall Season" (for the title), Papermania adhesive ribbon, Papermania raffia, Copper leaf peel-offs by Goldlabel and 'DD'
Tools: XCut border punch, QuicKutz circle frame dies, Spellbinder Nestabilities scalloped circle die
- The leaf paper is double sided, featuring the same image but at different saturations, so I used the paler side for the journalling block. I used the darker side for the leaf peel-offs and to frame the ribbon and the journalling too.
- For the leaves in the corners, I stuck the stems directly to the base card, but lifted the tips with foam pads, to give a fluttery effect.
