Kathy's Fall 'Family' layout

Good morning!
It is a crisp cool morning here...lots of leaves have fallen spilling their beautiful colors all over the ground!


Kathy has created a gorgeous layout with our Nov. Amy's Amazing Autumn kit.

She started with a piece of Reminisce paper from the kit and ripped it on an angle, using one piece on the top and bottom, to make it look like leaves were falling. The paper used in the middle is from Simple Stories Pumpkin Spice collection (also in the kit).  She used watered-down gesso and did some splatters around the page to give it a playful feel.  She cut apart one of the Enchanted Harvest papers from Bo Bunny that had various little cards on it (also from the kit) and created layers for the photo mat.
She also used two pieces together to make the rectangle on the right side and used two different stickers included in the kit on top of the tags, also included one of the add ons.  She tucked them behind each of the different mats, tied them together, and placed a brad from a previous kit on top.


She created a circle of twine to surround the photo and glued it down, and began to embellish the layout.


She created various flower clusters.  All the flowers she used are included in this month's Floral Add-On and she tucked in berries from her stash.  The little velvet leaves are also included with the florals. 






She added little wooden leaves from a previous SOD kit, and various metal pieces also from older kits. 


The title is a piece of chipboard is from her stash and she gessoed it first, and then went back over the bottom with Silks Acrylic Glaze "Persimmon", which is included in the Color Add-On (but also available in our store).  


She used a sticker from the Main Kit along the bottom border to give the layout balance, then added little jewels around the layout to give it some bling and interest. 

Thanks for stopping by!
