Garden

Hello friends!  Well I did this layout for More Than Words Challenge.  I actually did this layout without having a photo in mind.  While looking through photos I discovered these two lovely ones of my granddaughter Paityn in her garden.  



I used several mediums.  I used extra thick Gesso, a stencil, modeling paste, beads, and etc.  This was fun to create even though I did not have photo until the end.  

Here is the challenge.

Our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.
The challenge is open to layouts, canvases and art journal pages only.
Make sure to carefully read our instructions below.

Autumn

Hello my friends!  Here is my layout for the Design Team at CSI.  I thought the colors and the challenge was perfect for these photos which I just love.  They give me a very serene feeling and Fall is my favorite time of the year.  


I wish I had taken these photos but I did not.  My youngest sister did while in Wisconsin. They have a home there which they always go to from the beginning of summer to mid October.  They live here in Texas which gets extremely hot so going there during the summer is much better.  One year I just may have to go with her and her husband!

Here is the challenge.



Here is how I solved the case:

The Scheme:  I used all five colors
The Evidence:  Architectural element, Leaves, Wood element
The Testimony:  Autumn "Live" - Live in the moment, Own your dreams, Best day ever

Here are the close-ups: 


 This is so simple and I love the way it turned out.  



 These photos are so gorgeous!

Items that I used:

Prima paper
Other papers from my stash
Petaloo flowers, plus some from Michaels
Martha Stewart circle cutter
SA Crafters - wood items
Butterflies from my stash

Thankkyou for looking and have a wonderful day!
