First day of Fall for most of us starts tomorrow! Going back to school, crisp, cool weather, falling leaves. For both me (Patricia) and Sasha, we live in climates that don't see the fullness of the season. But that doesn't mean we can't enjoy it through color.
Sasha is an expert at adding color to her layouts, so I was excited to see what she would do for us:
Not only is Sasha's layout amazing, I love that she used non-Fall photos to work for her. Just gorgeous!
For my (Patricia) layout, I also went with a white cardstock and used variations of the colors. I stumbled onto this old photo of my daughter's first year at pre-school, and started pulling pattern papers. I used both sides of the Apple Cider pattern papers Hayride, Corn Maze, and Bonfire and the Milk Money 6x8 paper pack.
I started with the 'argyle' pattern with the leaves using the Silhouette, and replaced most of the traingles back. Then I started adding papers around it and my photo, giving it a very geomtrical, school feel.
Then I layered the chipboard numbers, and more from the Milk Money 6x8 paper pad, and Milk Money Double Take Stickers. I used baby powder on the back of the Bookworm stickers, then applied a light strip of adhesive with Scotch ATG onto the back and adhered to paper to feed through my typewriter. I laid these going in a different direction leading to the photo, with more details to help tell the story using Milk Money Metal Badges, Pop Drops, and Pillow Puffs.
Sasha and I hope these Fall Fashion colors have inspired you to join our challenge. Please share your work with us on October Afternoon Flickr Gallery, post it on our Facebook page, connect with us on Instagram via #octoberafternoon, or link us up in the comments below.
