Have you seen the Happy Camper line in the store. It is so cute and perfect for outdoor photos. I love the little pink diecut bird. The trees and clouds were in the same package.
Wood grain patterned papers are so popular and have been for a while. I love them. Check out the store for a variety of colours and designs. There are even some sheets of 'real' wood to use on your layouts. The wood paper I used here (Cosmo Cricket I believe) is a leftover piece from another layout I made months ago. I had cut a big circle out of the middle for my first layout so for this one I placed a big doily in the empty hole and then put the lot onto a piece of mustard yellow bazzil cardstock.
I misted over a tree mask and then splattered some yellow Making Memories paint using an old toothbrush.
Did you notice the Prima packaging under my big tag? And I love the texture of the Prima canvas leaves. So gorgeous!
The photo is of my two little boys in a big leaf pile when they were about 8 months old. Daddy thought it would be a good photo op. I don't think Daniel agrees. He's in the back with the worried look on his face.
I wanted to crop the photo so the boys were more the focal point, but then I would have lost the leaf pile and the fall colours so instead I wraped some green jute around to create a frame. This is a fun technique. It would work with natural jute; the kind you wrap parcels in, or even bakers twine. Look in the ribbon section at the store.
