Welcome to this month’s Scrap This! challenge with me, Liz (lizziet5). This month’s theme is Fall/Autumn/Halloween – who’d have guessed?! Beautiful, rich colours abound in many parts of the world at this time of year and it gives me great pleasure to share this month’s challenge photo’s from Linda (earlofoxford) and Lynn (grandma lynnie) with you. In addition to their beautiful Autumnal pictures, I’ve also added one into the mix.
First up is the photo from Lynn:
The following two photo’s have been provided by Linda:
And here’s my photo:
Linda was inspired to use Lynn’s photo of the colourful trees against the blue sky backdrop to document a glorious Autumn day and her wish for more crisp, Fall days. I love the rustic look of Linda’s page with the textured backdrop and the colour of the gorgeous Autumn leaves that she’s carried through to her title and her journaling. Fabulous blending of the photo and I hope you get your wish Linda!
Linda used the following products on her page: Challenge Freebie, Trickery Solids Paper Pack, Scribbled Overlays No. 02, Plastic Alphabet: Orange, From My Bookshelf Paper Pieces: Fall No. 01, Little Bits Alphabet: Chocolate, Wood Veneer Words No. 12, Drop Shadow Styles No. 02 – Katie Pertiet; Fifty States Brushes and Stamps MegaPak, Essential Words Hand Drawn Vol. 02 – Ali Edwards.
Continuing with a rustic look, Linda’s picture of sunkissed Fall leaves and bare branches inspired Agnieszka (Arte Banale) to create a woodland scene. The photo, cleverly spanning the three frames of the film strip, is complimented by Agnieszka’s choice of backdrop and the spiders web. I can hear the leaves crunching underfoot with this page, Agnieszka!
Here are the products that Agnieszka used: Challenge Freebie, Dirty Linens Autumn Paper Pack, Hello Autumn Word Art Brushes and Stamps, Sprayed Filmstrips Brushes and Stamps, Ledger Paper Pieces Leaves No. 04, Scribbled and Scripted Leaves Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Spider Webs Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Layered Bookshelf Overlays No. 01, Yesterday Alphabet No. 02 – all Katie Pertiet.
I decided to take advantage of Linda’s lovely picture of the pumpkins and give it pride of place on my page. I added the leaves and vintage clipping from Katie’s freebie behind the readymade border, included some seasonal patterned paper and finished off with my title.
The products I used are: Challenge Freebie, Hello Autumn Paper Pack, Trickery Add-On Paper Pack, Dirty Linens Autumn Paper Pack, Title Lines Shadowed Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Worth Repeating Brushes and Stamps No. 18 – Katie Pertiet; Readymade Borders: Fall No. 02 – Studio Double-D; Ali Edwards Layered Template No. 25 – Ali Edwards.
