It's Friday...yay! I thought I'd share another layout for Simple Stories using the Happy Haunting Simple Set. It's a small collection with just a few patterned papers and a sticker sheet, so I pulled out some light kraft cardstock from my stash to use as a background. I used a fun grid stencil and some ink sprays from Shimmerz and Heidi Swapp to create a messy base to layer my photos on. I used some of the patterned papers and some tissue paper behind the photo and decided to center it. I used my Cameo and a fun cut file from The Cut Shoppe to created the row of pumpkins. I wanted them to be subtle and not overpower the photo, so I didn't back them with paper or anything.
Since I used gold on the background, I machine stitched with gold through the pumpkins. I fussy cut "happy haunting" from patterned paper and added foam and thread under it and used it as a small secondary title. I centered my journaling right under that.
For more pops of black, I added more thread under the photo. All in all, this is a pretty simple layout. The photo is pretty busy, so I didn't want to make the layout itself even busier. I love how the gold turned out on the background.
Here's a look at the other side of the page...more of the same thing. I love how dimensional the pumpkin stems are.
For my main title, I used some of the Snap Bold alphas in black and just wrote "all the" with a black Sharpie. I wanted a small title, and I love how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by today...and have a wonderful weekend!
