Echo Park Celebrate Autumn - Falling Leaves

Hello, Karen here again with my final layout using the Celebrate Autumn collection from Echo Park.

I decided to create a very simple layout this time using a large 7"x10.5" photo  and some of the scraps of patterned paper which I had left after creating my other two layouts. The photo is of my daughter trying to catch some falling leaves and as it was only taken last month I was really pleased to get it scrapbooked so quickly.

I started with a 12x12 sheet of white Avalanche Bazzill cardstock and stuck my photo to this, just right of centre. Either side of my photo I stuck strips of the Falling Leaves (B Side), 3x4 Journaling cards (B Side) and Pumpkin Farm (B Side) papers which I cut to varying widths.  I machine stitched the strips of patterned paper to the layout using black thread and bent the edges up  a little to create a bit of dimension.

I also added a column of sequins and paper leaves between two of the strips of paper. Some of the leaves were punched from scraps of the patterned paper and others were fussy cut from a scrap of the Falling Leaves paper. I also added some sequins on top of some of the paper strips for added sparkle.

A circle of sequins were glued onto the photo to draw attention to my daughter eagerly poised beneath the trees waiting to catch a falling leaf.

I raided my stash for some Gold Glitter Foam Thickers and some very old stickers from a sheet of Simple Stories  Cardstock Stickers to make the title on the bottom of the photo. Very similar Thickers and stickers can be found in the Papermaze shop

To complete my layout I printed my journaling on the computer onto a piece of white cardstock and stuck this beneath the photo. The date was also added to the layout using Websters Pages The Good Life Little Letter Stickers 

I have really enjoyed playing with this paper collection over the last couple of months and hope I've inspired you to scrapbook those autumn photos and have a look at what autumn goodies are available in the Papermaze shop.

Take Care
