"Autumn is Here" Scrapbook Page by Rhonda Van Ginkel
I started with my favorite leaf patterned paper in the collection, trimmed to 9x9, then used a corner punch to soften the layer. Next, I used the Falling Leaves Stickable Stencil and applied a blend of Silver and Gold Glitter Paste to blend into the paper design. It adds a pretty shimmer and a very nice touch of texture.
I selected the "Cornucopia" paper for the next layer and trimmed to 10.25" square, then punched a decorative edge around it. These layers were stitched together and then anchored to the background "Harvest" paper in an offset arrangement.
Once I had my layers assembled, I used my "Distressed Textures" stamp on the bottom left corner and then the "It Is Written" stamp to the right of the photo collage.
Recently I received some of our new release dies and I've been so excited to use them! I cut several of the Fanciful flourish shapes from the "Bountiful" paper from the 6x6 Paper Pad which has a burlap appearance.
The Perfect Petals dies made quick work of creating a beautiful bloom. I cut my layers, added a slight touch of Gold Glimmer Spray using a paintbrush for some sheen, allowed to dry a bit and then shaped the petals. A layered Chipboard accent was added to the center for the perfect finishing touch.
You may notice my photo has a second dimensional layer to it. I printed the photo a second time and then cut the silhouette of my boys out and adhered directly on top with foam tape. It gives the photo a bit of extra depth.
