Heather Leopard here to say that I have had an amazing month guesting here on the October Afternoon blog but before I say goodbye, I have a fun layout and process video to share using the Saturday Mornings collection.
If you know me, you know that I have a fondness for creating visual backgrounds for my base pages. Sometimes it's piecing itty bitty pieces together and sometimes it's a little more free-flowing, like today. I used a mix of scrap papers and 3x4 journal cards create the background and then meshed up some fun circles along the horizontal and vertical axises for a fun visual twist.
I share a tip in the video below for cutting a photo into a perfect circle when you don't have a punch or die that fits perfectly. I used it for last week's hexagon photo and explained it in the video as I cut the circle photo for this layout.
This little girl definitely sparkles and shines wherever she goes so I thought it only fitting to title this "She brings her own Sunshine". I chose to focus only on the gorgeous blues and yellows (with a small bit of brown) from the Saturday Mornings collection help accentuate the story.
So there you have it, my final layout as guest designer. Please STAY TUNED below and check out how this layout came together, relatively fast and easy. And do tell me, do I have a Texas accent? I don't think I do even though I've lived here all my life.
Thanks October Afternoon for having me this month. I had way too much fun creating with your fabulous collections.
ETA: Thank you so much Heather, for sharing your time and your talents here with October Afternoon this month! It was a pleasure having you join us!
