Hi there FD friends! Rachelle here and I am excited to share today's tutorial for this layout I created using this month's kit; "Summer's End." This kit is filled with an array of beautiful fall colors of paper and embellishments. Grab a cup of coffee and follow along the steps!
To create this page I used the beautiful fall colors within this kit. The brown, blue, gold, and tan tones present such striking display of artistry colors. I started with teal blue cardstock for the background and topped it off with a 12x12 Summer Meadow collection paper. I cut out a square from that paper and turned it over for a goldtone center. Next I paper punch white cardstock for the center border. Then it was time to create a scallop border on the edges on the Summer Meadow paper adding a double pinch to each corner.
Now it's time to create a texturized background using homemade texture paste, clock stencil, and Glimmer Mist Chalkboard - Cornflower. Then I added a Prima text stamp using brown ink. Allow to dry. Now it's time to add layers and more layers from the collection paper followed by adding an array of beautiful embellishments. I started using the metal charm clocks, embossed stickers,and those awesome Petaloo flowers.
Here you can see the beautiful cluster of flowers, with the lace blue bow, and the wooden doilie. By the way, when using the glimmer mist be sure to shake well until you see the tiny bubbles. Then open the bottle just a bit to release the air. Now your ready to use the mist.
Here I painted the wooden leaves and created a cute little corner using enamel dots and kraft twine. I also used the embossed stickers and kraft doilie. You can see the splats of the gilmmer mist and ink stamp on top of the textured clock.
Here you can see more of the elements, textured background and title I created for this layout. I love how the layers of the this beautiful collection paper blended together.
The picture I used shows beautiful fall colors of brown, red, and tan. By the way this lovely little lady is Megan, daughter of my friend. This picture blends in well with the fall tones of this layout.
Finally, I applied the journal to this layout. All done!! I hope you enjoyed viewing my page today as much as I enjoyed creating it! Make sure you stop by the Frosted Design Store for this kit and more fantastic products. Thanks for stopping by, your kind comments always make my day!
