I'm taking a break from the holiday projects today, to share with you a fall themed page, for this round of two-page Tuesday.
A favorite activity in our household each fall is raking up the backyard leaves into a giant pile fit for jumping in. Of course, I can't let the memory pass without snapping a few photos of this beloved tradition and the smiles it brings to my kiddos faces.
This post shows a page I did to record this event last year. This time around I went with a more neutral cardstock base, accenting the two page spread with some collage type elements.
|Supplies used: Cathy Zielske - 3x4 printable (from Scrapbook and Cards Today Fall 2014 issue); Pebbles - patterned paper; American Crafts - patterned paper (yellow/white stripe); Studio Calico - wood veneer heart; Crate Paper - wood frame; Maya Road - kraft envelope; Bazzill Basics - cardstock; Doodlebug Design - enamel dots; Kerri Bradford - cut file title; Other - machine stitching. computer font, silhouette.|
The journaling is always a key piece in my pages. I have a tendency to be a bit wordy at times, so finding just the right spot to fit my text and not overwhelm my photos can be a bit tricky. I found this awesome wooden oval-shaped frame from Crate Paper in my stash. The wood tones were a great match for the outdoorsy nature of the page and the center of the frame left a good surface area to include my journaling. I accented the frame with a few layered leaves, cut with my silhouette, a wood veneer heart and a sprinkling of enamel dots.
The 3x4 card that sits just above my journaling, serves as the title for my page. This 3x4 card, along with the coordinating one I've used on the right page, are printables from Cathy Zielske. I love the clean and graphic feel to these cards, which is very typical of her style, yet they still mesh nicely with a more collage-y design.
The second page of my spread is almost a mirror image of the first. The photo placement is again concentrated in the center of the page, with the collage elements framing out the ends of the photo arrangement.
Thanks for joining me for another installment of two page Tuesday. See you soon!
