A Woven Background November 09, 2016 07:00

I picked the BasketWeave cut file for my page below, because I thought it'd be perfect for a fall page.  I decided to continue using the Simple Stories "Hello Fall" line, too, since we just had a team up a few weeks ago.  I just love this collection!

I was originally going to use the basketweave file as is, but then I thought, "Well, it is a basket WEAVE, so why not weave in some strips of paper"?  And I did just that.

 

I cut some random strips of color papers to weave in and out of my background.  I matted by photo on a contrasting color to help it stand out from the background.  

A 3x3 card serves as my title, and a few clusters of leaves embellish the edges of the photo.  I also used some wood veneer circles from my stash to help ground the clusters.

There are so many great fall cut files in the store!  Hope you have added some to your cart!
