Wonderful little boy layout - September Falling Leaves Kit

Hi again! It's Tracy here with my 6th project with the gorgeous Scraps of Elegance September Kit, "Falling Leaves".

"Evan's New Glasses"

I used a bit more flowers and leaves from my stash on this one, but the cream roses, two larger brown flowers, the printed chipboard border and all the patterned papers are from the kit and add-ons.

I started with the beautiful "Friendship" paper from the Amber and Apricot collection by Blue Fern Studios (included in the Main Kit).  I misted the edges of the paper with water and then dabbed some diluted brown ink from a reinker bottle to the wet edges using a paintbrush.  I also used a splatter stamp with the brown ink to tie in the darker browns from the tinted photo.

The die-cuts were made with paper from the Main KitPatterned Paper Add-on and Coordinating Paper Add-on.  I layered each of the die-cuts over a dark brown copy and offset them slightly to accentuate the edges.

The chipboard vines were from my stash.  I heat-embossed them with Vintage Photo Distress embossing powder and then used an embossing marker with Tea Dye Distress embossing powder to add some colour variation to the leaves.

Here are a couple more close-ups:

Thank you so much for taking a look!
