Simple Stories: Autumn Outing
Fall is my family’s favorite time of year to be outside! Whether it’s driving through the mountains to see the colorful leaves, a visit to the pumpkin patch, or walks around the neighborhood, we can never seem to get enough of our favorite season!
The Autumn Splendor collection by Simple Stories encapsulates everything we love about autumn with its color palette and beautiful, botanical images. It was so much fun creating this page for our family album!
I fell head over heels for the coordinating stencil for this collection and decided to add it to the background paper (3×4 Elements paper). I love the way the stenciled details look peeking out from behind the Foliage Bits & Pieces. I repeated the stenciling around the page in three areas to create a visual triangle in my design and to keep your eye moving around the page.
I framed the single photo for this page with a Layered Chipboard Frame and then added layers of additional patterned papers and Foliage Bits & Pieces leaves behind for texture. This entire grouping is popped up on foam tape.
I fussy-cut the journal block from the 3×4 Elements paper and then added it to the right of my photo at a downward angle. A pair of foliage leaves and a butterfly connect the journal block to the layered photo block and add even more to the outdoorsy feel!
I combined the chipboard “AUTUMN” word with orange letters from my stash for the title. I added distress ink to the orange letters to tie them in with the inking in the background.
This beautiful collection makes me long for sunny Autumn days and fall drives in the mountains! I can’t wait for the leaves to begin changing! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you feel inspired to scrapbook some of your fall family photos, too!
