I started with some light kraft cardstock as my base and a beautiful leaf cut file from the Just Nick store. I used a few pieces of the papers to back the leaves. I love that orange color...so pretty and so Fall :) I used some white gesso on my background and then used the packaging technique with some Shimmerz Paints to create a pretty watercolor effect. All of these Fall colors are so pretty together, and they have such a homey feeling.
Backing a cut file is super easy to do, and it always looks great. When you use a larger one like this, it helps your layout come together quicker because the bulk of your design is done. I used a bit of gold Shimmerz to tint those little dots on the leaves. I also used a few leaf stickers from the sticker sheet here on the corner of a piece that I cut from paper.
For my title, I used some alphas from the Snap Bold Stickers pack. The colors matched this collection perfectly. To finish them off and add a pop of gold shine, I machine stitched through each word. I also added a few phrase stickers from the other Fall collection Hello Fall.
I added some tangled thread around the photo and also a few sentiment stickers. I used some tissue paper and a few pieces of patterned paper as layers behind the photo.
I'm so pleased with how this turned out. I think the colors are so pretty, and they really make the cut file stand out.
I did make a process video for this layout. I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!
