Hello and happy September! It’s soon time for colorful, beautiful and amazingly inspiring nature, at least here in Northern Hemisphere. While waiting those colors, I picked up a photograph from last fall and started creating my own wreath out of paper leaves.
There are plenty of different leaves and blooms to cut out of Spooky Boo patterned papers, and in addition to hand cut some I also used my electric cutting machine to cut out more different shaped leaves.
Then, I glued the leaves down onto white cardstock to shape of a wreath, and made a paper cluster using the left over patterned papers.
As I had printed out two of the same photos, I cut one smaller than the other, and placed them on top each other using foam tape. See the dimension, isn’t it such a fun detail!
Once I had attached all papers and photos, I started flicking gold and yellow mists around the wreath. That’s easy to do with small watercolor brush.
As I love layers, and love highlighting the layers, adding small adhesive pearls is another great way to do so. Those small items between the leaves are shimmering nicely and gives extra unique look to the layout.
Hopefully this inspires you to create something today!
