I used the following papers: Walking in the Forest (Autumn Poem, Flannel Shirt-bs, Cozy Scarf-bs), Vintage Autumn Basics (XVI)....love this paper for it's lovely clock accents!
I used the Autumn Poem paper as my background matting paper and then cut the backside of the 'Flannel Shirt' paper to leave about an inch around the outside of the paper. I inked the background with some Tim Holtz 'Antique Linen' Distress ink around the photo area using a sponge applicator. I then did a little stamping with a couple of stamps I designed for The Scrapbook Diaries (brick stamp from my textures set and some script from my Labels stamp set).
The title is from a Dusty Attic word pack #10. I gave all my chipboard a coat of white Gesso (I like to do this so that when I ink them, the colors show up brighter). I then inked the chipboard with a Denim Distress Ink.
I used the Dusty Attic 'Leafy Scroll' chipboard design for my corner accent. Again I painted it white with Gesso and then just randomly inked the leaves with Ingvild Bolme 'Rock Moss' chalk ink and edging with some Ingvild Bolme 'Branch Bark' chalk ink.
I cut banner strips from the backside of the Cozy Scarf paper and layered a few under the corner vine as well as under the photo area. Do you ever have a page where you thoroughly enjoy working on it?This is one of those layouts for me....the colors make me happy and every piece just seemed to work.
