I cut a bunch of leaves on my Cameo using one of Kim Watson's cut files for this month. Before peeling them off the sticky mat, I used multiple Shimmerz Paints to color them. I used the two Shimmerz from this month's Color Kit...Texturez Crushed Coral & Vibez Glorious Day as well as more from my stash. I wanted light and airy leaves in non-traditional colors. I love how the leaves curled up when they dried. It gives them a more realistic look.
Aren't they beautiful? I love these soft colors. You really can't mess up leaves no matter what color they are. They're easy to layer and tuck, which I what I did here. I did some gold stitching on some of them before adhering them, and I also added some teal tangled thread in the mix. I only added some tissue paper and some light pink cardstock behind my photo.
When I first started this page, I was inspired by these pretty feathers on one of the 4x6 Project Life cards designed by Kim Watson. I fussy cut them out and added them to the leaf mix. I also added in a few Simple Stories gold clear stickers. There are also a few gold rub-ons in there, too.
I made a cluster of leaves for the bottom part of the page as well. I added in a few leaf stems from the Take Me Away gold Thickers, which acted as a dimensional piece for the other leaves.
I'm loving this texture and depth...such a fun way to embellish!
One more close-up of the title area here...I added in one of the We R Memory Keepers wood veneer pieces that matched so well. I went simple with my title and used some of the exclusive HKC puffy alpha stickers with the WRKM small wood grain alphas. I added my journaling right under it.
Here's my process video if you'd like to see how this all came together. I hope you enjoy and gain some inspiration!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
