So Very Grateful for You

Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd  - SO VERY GRATEFUL FOR YOU -

Hi there!

It is Gratitude week at Scrapbook Nerd, and i used this opportunity to create a seasonal layout using a non- autumnal paper collection.   The secret to mixing the collection and theme together is to play with mixed media to bring some of those warm tones to your page.

A little bit of Vicki Boutin Art crayons were mixed to create what i would call gold tones with out the shine.  These were used as watercolors to create the soft background behind the cut outs in the layout.   A bit of Heidi Swapp gold color shine was then added to bring the shimmer and shine of the season to the page.

To create this page, I pulled a few cut files from Handipaper, and used Kaisercraft's Bloom collection to back the flowers and leaves in them.  To warm up the tones in the page, i also used the Fleur collection from Kaisercraft to back all the leaves in the branches of the cut out.

To accent all the colors in the page, and to bring a bit more of the textures of fall, a frame of woodgrain paper was used as strips at the side on the layout and in some of the clusters of this page.  Here is the final layout:

It was so easy to combine a few paper collections, with the beautiful cut files into this page,  I love how easy it was to put together, the following video will show you a bit of the process behind the project:

Remember to stop by Scrapbook Nerd to check all the materials used in this page, and you can always contact me if you have questions on how all this came together.
