Why I Love Autumn

Why I Love Autumn. I love the colors, the leaves, clothing layers, fall festivals, and THE FOOD. Autumn kicks off all of the great family gatherings. Summer barbecue is ok; but it does not compare to warm apple cider, Carmel apples, homemade chili with Mexican cornbread and the delicious Thanksgiving dinner. Oh yes I love autumn.  My first project for the blog hop begins with the colors of fall.

Day spent looking for fall colors. East Park is the best place in Nashville to find beautiful leaves.  

Example 1: Photo Selection

     This layout was all about the trees. I took several pictures from different angles and zooms.
     I'm not sure why I choose the DCWV paper pattern other than because it had been in my stash for several years.  But It worked and worked very nicely. I staggered the letters of the title block to symbolize the falling leaves.

I choose not to mat the photos because the paper was busy and I wanted to add more elements.  I added a little bling, stickers, and ribbon just to make it festive.  The stickers give examples of the things we all love about autumn.

Example 2: Embellishments
  • Ek Success epoxy stickers
  • EK Success foil edged leaves
  • Paper studio Ribbon and bling
  • colored staples

Example 3: Robbon
I used ribbon on layout 1 & 2. Ribbon just makes pages nicer.

Thank you for visiting! See you tomorrow.  Be sure to visit Cassie next.
