A Scraphappy Southernbelle

Thursday, March 5, 2009


Hey yall! I just finished up this layout and thought I would post. This one is doing triple-duty for 3 separate challenges. The first was a sketch challenge with a twist. You had to follow the sketch given and your picture could not include people, it had to be nature. So I used a picture of some fall foliage taken this past November in Nashville. Second, a challenge on Treasured Scrapbooking where you were to include 2 of the following: tree, bird, flower, and leaf. I have a tree and leaves in the picture, a handmade flower, and leaves in the paper and around the flower. Third, another challenge on Treasured Scrapbooking where you were supposed to recycle. I decided to recycle some paint swatches. These would of ended up in the trash anyway. I wish we had touch-a-vision....these feel so cool! They are like sandstone. It really gives that earthy texture. Here are my paint swatches:

I used my Cricut Plantin' Schoolbook cart to cut my lettering out of the swatches. Also, on the layout I included alot of orange and green scrapbook paint. I tried to make it look distressed. When I think of nature and outside, I think of paint looking like this. I received these leaves in a swap. They are really delicate. They are gold with touches of orange in them. Here is the layout:

Thanks for stoppin' by! Take care and have a beautiful day!
Pin It!
