October 2014 Shadow Box Club Layout

This month I was inspired by fall colors, Pathfinding paper packet in particular, and the Pathingfinding Workshop on the Go Cardmaking kit.

This layout is from the Imagine book. It is pattern “Monologue” which can be found on page 52-53.

I stamped the Olive cardstock using the bamboo stamp from Season of Thanks (D1604) with Olive ink. I stamped all of the leaves in Chocolate ink on Goldrush, Barn Red, Autumn Terracotta, and Glacier cardstock.

After adhering my base papers, I added some dimension with the burlap, acorns, title, and accessories.

Cutting out the leaves and acorns will allow layering.  The sequin and printed cork also add to the effect.

The title was influenced by the Pathfinding card kit with the same saying.  I thought it appropriate for the time of year without shouting out "Thanksgiving".

The burlap (discontinued) adds to the fall feel of the page.

The white represents the 4" x 6" picture that would be placed there.

If you wanted to flip the papers over, they look good together as well.  I would recommend using lighter paper as the base though.  In fact, this kit almost came out with Champagne as the base.  I felt the leaves stand out more on this background, thus my completed project as shown. : )

Additional modifications you may consider... edge distress all of the paper with the edge distressor. That will add to the fall feel of the layout. You could sand under the title too.

The two large white papers represent 4" x 6" pictures, and the two small white papers are for the 3" x 3" pictures.

Some close ups.
