Hi there Just Nick fans, Niki here with you today with a fall themed layout and I have used the Leafy Background 2 cut file. Fall (or Autumn as we refer to it in the UK) is really not my thing. I'm not a fan of Autumn colours and particularly dislike brown so Autumn layouts are always challenging for me! But I do love a challenge so set about making a fall layout that I liked and remained true to my usual style. I went though all my collections and finally decided upon gold as a colour scheme and pulled out two sheets of paper from the new Paige Evans collection Turn the Page.
I backed the leaves with one sheet of the paper which had an ombre effect. I didn't have much of this paper left so had to be careful with how I used it to back my leaves. I embraced the ombre effect of the paper and have backed my leaves with the light shades at the top and the darker shades towards the bottom.
I have prepared a process video so that you can see my process of making this layout below:
Once my leaves were backed, I applied some gold spritz to the white background and added my leaves on top. I mounted the layout on another autumnal paper from the Turn the Page collection. And then I set about embellishing the layout with anything I could find in my stash that was gold or yellow in colour.
I finished off by adding some fussy cut flowers to some of the flowers on the cut file.
So even though fall really isn't my thing, I totally embraced the theme and have made a layout I love and is completely true to my style - and there's hardly any brown in sight!
Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my layout and video, happy scrapping xxx
