Hey there, friends! I’ve been crafting away with the Autumn kit and can’t get enough of the color palette and decorative elements! Today I’m sharing a 6”x12” layout I created with the kit.
This layout has two photos, making it pretty full space-wise. For that reason, I kept the decorative elements minimal with just some watercolor and patterned paper layering. I noticed that I could split the patterned papers into two color palettes. From there, I chose with palette I wanted to use for this layout. I was really drawn to the colorful striped paper and decided to use that as the base for my layout color scheme.
I use the white & gold foil alphabet stickers from the Autumn kit and a die cut for my title. The title is long, so I used that as a secondary focal point, with the photos being the first.
Much like the last layout I shared here on the blog, I matched my watercolors to the color palette of the layout - in this case, I used the colors found on that striped patterned paper I mentioned!
To finish it off, I added splatters of gold watercolor and a little bit of journaling.
I really love the way this layout turned out! The Autumn kit was perfect to tell this story. I love how the decorative elements don’t detract from the photos themselves, they lift them up and make it easier to tell the story in a meaningful way! I created a process video for this layout so you could see how it came together.
