Happy New Year! And I’m sure we’re all hoping for a better one than 2020!
Though we’re in the middle of winter I have two layouts to share today which are decidedly autumn themed. I don’t scrapbook chronologically and this collection was so colourful that I wanted to use it for my first 2021 post.
My first layout started with some mixed media which I applied with stencils, stamps and droplets of ink. I chose the main stencil for the background to work with the stripes in the Cutfiles.
Next, I backfilled my title cutfile and glued it slightly off centre to allow space for my photo.
I layered the photo with some patterned papers, some of which I distressed, then I added a circular layer behind that. I tucked a tag behind the photo for my journalling.
I added stickers and die cuts from the ephemera pack to add interest on the photo cluster. And some bright yellow enamel dots finished it all off.
One of the papers in this collection is a beautiful floral design that I wanted to use as the background for my second page.
It was a little busy though, so I cut a circular leafy cutfile and placed it in the centre of the paper. I drew round the outside edge of the cutfile and trimmed that shape from the middle of the floral paper.
I backed it with a creamy coloured cardstock which gave me a plain space to add my photos and embellishments. I backfilled the cutfile and using foam dots, I glued it down to line up with the shape I had previously cut. I needed a lot of concentration to get that right!
Then I layered up my photo and tucked it under the left of the cutfile leaves. I trimmed the scalloped edges from a copper foiled die cut which I used to frame the photo.
I finished the page by adding a phrase sticker with some leaf die cuts and a copper foiled heart.
I’ll be back later in the month with two more autumn coloured layouts, until then, happy scrapping everyone!
