Hello everyone! Laura here with you today, sharing
a little scrapbooking inspiration. I've got a LO that
would be perfect for those Thanksgiving pictures
you are bound to have after spending the day with
family and friends.
It's full of warm fall colors, and family togetherness.
The base is olive green cardstock, and I started
building the layers with one of the Clear Scraps
stencils that has quickly become a favorite! It's
the 5x9 Leaf Stencil that I dabbed on using a soft
orange/yellow paint. The stencil gives you 2 great
options to use on all sorts of projects in any season.
After layering in some plaid patterned papers, it
was time to embellish. I used a few stickers and
twine, and also grabbed some of the Clear Scraps
chipboard. The Family Chipboard Word Title
is a perfect addition to sum up the LO idea.
It's painted with acrylic paint (same as the
leaves with the stencil) and then brushed
with some distress ink to make it pop a bit.
The Gnomes Chipboard Embellishment
was decorated by painting his beard with
gray acrylic paint, his little shoes black
(I used a brush for the detail work) and
then I cut a piece of paper in the shape of
of the nose and added paint and ink 'til
I got a look I liked. While that dried, I
had already traced him onto some pretty
fall patterned scrapbook paper, so it was
time to fussy cut him out, then glue to the
front (hat) or back (beard) of the gnome.
I added a band and some stickers to the hat.
When I glued him to the page, I saved the
nose for last and added foam tape under to
give it some dimension. Then a few more
stickers across the front and he was done!
Thanks for stopping by today!
