Hello JustNick friends!
Nicole here and today I'm sharing a layout using the new Leaf Cluster 3. This beautiful cluster makes for a powerful impact on any layout or project. Here's a look at the file:
And this is how I used it on my layout:
I love the bold statement this makes.  For my layout, I flipped it horizontally so the top orange leaf would point to the top left of the page where I added additional embellishments.  This helps to keep the eye moving around the page. 
I used some of my favorite retired October Afternoon papers to back the cut file as well as for the background paper and small embellishments.  I used a fall Simple Stories pack of foam stickers for my title and a few other embellishments.
Since I used a bold pattern for the back ground, I used a shimmery gold paint to add splatters to give if more dimension and add another color to help break up the pattern.
Lastly, I added a few bits to the left of the photo and at the top of the page to add balance. I absolutely adore the "snuggle up" die cut and how perfectly it works with the photo of my son.
Thanks so much for joining me today!
I hope you've been inspired!
