I “Love the Fall”…do you?!02 November 2012 | By Katrina in Page Layouts, Pennants, Uncategorized
Hey Katrina here again! Do you love fall? I am a person that cannot wait for the cooler weather and for the changing of the seasons. And the mystery of what the colors will be around here always intrigues me. We never know how they will be depending on what kind of weather we had in the summer.
The beginning of the leaves falling also means cleaning up said leaves. I took the opportunity to snap a few pics as this was happening this year, because I knew it would make a great layout. I used my October Gossamer Blue kit, because the colors were perfect for my layout.
I started with the houses from the Happy Little Houses set. Love that you can mix and match the doors in the set. I started with the cardboard house and peeled off the top layer of cardboard from the main part of the house, leaving the roof alone. I mixed some modeling paste with some Mr. Huey’s mist to color it brown and placed it over the ribs of the cardboard. I mixed up the orange and brown colors on the roof the same way and just dabbed at them with a soft brush to give some texture. This was my first time playing with the paste and I was a little unsure of what to do exactly. BUT, I will be using it more!
The other house I covered with a few different pattern papers. The door knob is actually a knotted piece of Lawn Fawn hemp twine and just glued on with some Fabri Tac, but I love the knobby look of it.
I used one of the Large Pennants in canvas to accent the top corner of my page. I punch a couple of holes to string some twine thru. I adhered the triangle “you are here” tag to the top of the pennant and then attached to my page as a final embellishment.
I hope I have given you the bug to get out there and scrap those fall photos. And to incorporate some Basically Bare goodies into those layouts! Have a wonderful day.
