Gorgeous mixed media Fall Layout - September Falling Leaves Kit

Hello friends, Lisa here to share another layout with the 
Scraps of Elegance kit 'Falling Leaves'.


This kit is chock full with the beautiful 'Amber Moon' collection by Prima. It has it all; the papers, the stickers, the flowers, and the decorative tapes. I always start with a coat of clear gesso so my mediums don't seep into the paper, and then I added some watercolors and stamping. From there I layered on the papers, leaves and flowers under my photo and title.

Here are a few close ups:

I used the following products from the main kit
floral add on and elements add on:

Prima Amber Moon - 'Pumpkin'
Prima Amber Moon - 'Pumpkin Love'
Prima Amber Moon - 'Postcards'
Silk Leaves
Prima Amber Moon - Word Stickers
Blue Fern Studios - Paprika Seedlings
Leaf Shaped Brads
Orange Opal Ribbon
Prima Amber Moon - Ephemera
Kaisercraft - Wheat Stencil
Prima - Parisian Amber Stones

See you soon,
Lisa xo

MIxed Media Monday - Falling Leaves kit

Hello ladies! I'm back again to share even more fall inspiration with you. The colors of this kit 'Falling Leaves' are just so perfect for this time of year!

I'm back to using the gorgeous Blue Fern Studios collection 'Amber & Apricot' for this layout using a cool vintage photo that I found at an estate sale a few weeks back.
I covered the Blue Fern Studios chipboard 'Organic Vine Corner' with white gesso and then I used some 13 arts Pigment Powder in copper and then after that dried some 13 arts Gold Glitter for some sparkle.

Here are a few close ups:

Celebrating Love with fall colors - September Falling Leaves kit

It's me again, Nicole, and this is my 4th project
created with the Scraps of Elegance "Falling Leaves" kit!

I can never get enough of Autumn-themed layouts and projects,
so this was the perfect kit for me! Plus, I have loads of Fall photos to scrap, this one from my boyfriend and I's very first Autumn together back in 2006!  The leaves were just starting to change colour and we were FALLing in love!

I opted for a neutral colour combination of grey and white
with a touch of different shades of yellow!
Look at all those gorgeous blooms all from the Floral add-on.

In the Elements add-on, there is some beautiful Washi tape from Prima
so I added a few strips on this page. I decorated with many pieces of Prima Ephemera.

Look at us... so young and hopeful!  And the spark is as much alive as it was then!

Now it's your turn... make sure that you share with us your creations using the Scraps of Darkness or Scraps of Elegance kits
by joining our Facebook Mixed Media Community right HERE.

Until next time!

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.

Main Kit

Patterned Paper Add-on

Coordinating Paper Add-on

Elements Add-on

Floral Add-on

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!

Super Sweet Autumn layout - Falling Leaves kit

Hello everyone!

Nicole here today, and I am thrilled to be sharing another Autumn
layout created with the fabulous Scraps of Elegance "Falling Leaves" kit.

I so love how this layout turned out!  From the gorgeous background paper to the many layers of fussy cut flowers, die cut doilies, chipboard elements and the beautiful flowers and bling... all from the kit and its add-ons!

This combination of warm colours go so well together and look at those scalloped chipboard borders from the Blue Fern Studios set.  Perfect layering.

I didn't add much mixed media techniques to this page except for a few dabs of white paint on my flowers.  The background paper is so pretty just as it is.

I used this very sweet photo of my friend's daughter as the focal point. It just went along so well with the 'sweet as honey' theme!

I will be back soon with yet another "Falling Leaves" project!
Make sure to come back for more!!

Gorgeous Fall layout - September Falling Leaves Kit

Hello, everyone! 

Sandi here with you today sharing an Autumn inspired, masculine layout created with the Scraps of Elegance September Kit "Falling Leaves." 

This layout features sweet grandson Joseph at the petting zoo. It was in my "to scrap" pile and I thought it would be perfect for these bright orange tones. I love a good pop of orange although I tend to do more peach or coral. But this looks amazing on autumn-themed paper! And paired with golds and brown ... yummy, so perfect! 

I went simple in design this time and only did a small amount of gesso splattering ... otherwise clean and simple on this one. I've paired Blue Fern Studios Amber and Apricot "Flora" and "Chapters" to complete my layers along with some of the co-ordinating chipboard pieces. I've also added the Blue Fern Studios Pretty Pumpkins chipboard which is found in the Chipboard add-on. 

I doubled my floral add-on this month because I wanted to have plenty, plenty .. well, a surplus actually, lol. They look so beautiful used here with my sweet boy! And there is one of the Pretty Pumpkins peeking out there which was altered using the Brusho in Sandstone from the Color add-on. 

My photo layers (and the florals) were from Prima's Amber Moon collection which pairs so nicely with the Blue Fern Studios products. 

A few pieces of the co-ordinating chipboard goes a long way in creating a co-hesive page. You may recall that the amber stones by Prima were found in the Elements add-on Kit. And ... I love the silk leaves from the Main Kit ... so perfect for layering. 

In reality, I am not quite ready for Fall just because it so quickly fades to Winter around here. And I am not a fan of Winter at all. But I have to admit I love looking at Fall colors and Fall decor. 

This Busy as a Bee chipboard fits Joseph to a T. He's a busy boy! 

That's it from me today. Here's a photo of the Kit and a LINK to the online store, so you can check out what's available! 

Thanks for coming by!

Mixed Media Monday - September Falling Leaves Kit

Hello everyone !

It's Annie with my fourth reveal with September kit Falling Leaves at Scraps of Elegance.

Here is my fourth layout with this beautiful kit.  I was going for a more feminine look with a picture of my daughter.  That is why I decided to use a White background.  I also kept the flowers from 49 and Market for the end.  I thought they were a little on the Pink side, which can go really well with the other flowers from Scraps of Darkness kit :)

Thanks for stopping by
