Fall Color (Little Yellow Bicycle Acorn Hollow)


Sharing more beautiful foliage from our visit to Letchworth State Park today. I built my page around the tree paper, adding in some "falling" chipboard and sticker leaves. I also used some of May Arts wonderful burlap "ribbon" for texture and natural color. In the end, I found myself without a place for journaling (!) so I had to get a bit creative. I printed the journaling on vellum and placed it right on the photo. The vellum masks the photo just enough to let the picture show through and the journaling to stand out. I was able to hide the adhesive underneath the diecut I used to frame the journaling.

How about you? What do you do when you've worked yourself into a corner and don't have a spot for what you want to say? :)

  12. Gorgeous layout! I love the photo and all the fun fall leaves. Great way to do the journaling! I will have to remember this. If I forget to leave room for journaling, I will pull up the photo and create a pocket with it, journal on a tag and stick the tag behind the photo. It works in a pinch! :)

  13. What a lovely page! I have done that more than once. I often print the journaling on cardstock that is the same colour as the background, so it doesn't take up real estate :)

  17. You did such a great job with this difficult paper. I wouldn't have known how to use this side and would have opted for side B for sure!! Very creative with the journaling. I found myself without a spot for journaling on the last layout I did!!
