You are my Happy Place by Sophie Delorme September 22, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!


It’s Sophie on the blog today with this autumnal layout to share!



I used the beautiful “Fantastic Fall Leaves” cut file for this page, along with the Felicity Jane “Julia” collection.



I created a mixed media background by applying watercolors in the shades of pink, yellow and green to match the color scheme of the collection.


I let it dry completely.


In the meantime, I cut many leaves from the cut file on white cardstock. I machine stitched in the center of many leaves with different colors of thread. I bent the edges and arranged them in clusters around my black and white photo.



I fussy cut a few florals from a patterned paper and placed them amongst the leaves. I made sure to adhere only the center of the leaves and flowers to create a lot of dimension.



I placed my title on the top left side of the photo. I handwrote my journaling on a pocket card and added a beautiful gingham tag next to it.



Finally, I added plenty of beautiful green crystal gems from Pinkfresh Studio as the finishing touch!


I took a ton of close-ups:








I am so happy with the result! I used the cut file as if I had numerous die cut embellishments! Simple but adorable!


I hope this was inspiring for you today !


Thank you for stopping by, I will see you again soon !
