Hi scrappy friends, it’s Lisa back on the blog today sharing a super fun and colorful October layout created with the new Paige Evans Whimsical collection.
I had this picture from where I visited a small pumpkin patch here in Luxembourg. Since it was the first time I went to buy pumpkins at a farmer’s market, I was very excited and wanted to take some pictures with all the pumpkins on it. I was so happy, let me tell you!
I went through Paige’s cut files and also through some cut files that I had favorited on Etsy and I thought that the pumpkin and the sugar skull were the perfect match. I love sugar skulls… I even have one tattooed on my arm hehe 😉
To start, I backed the cut files using different patterned papers from the Whimsical collection. I love how the colors are so bright and that there are beautiful papers with patterns, but also plain ones.
I took a white page, cut off a bit of the edges, and placed it on one of the patterned papers. Then I stitched around the edges with gold thread. I used some gold mist to make splatters all over the page.
I used a few patterned papers to mat my picture and then I placed the cut files and the picture on my layout using fun foam to make them stand out and create dimension.
To finish, I embellished with some flowers I cut out from the flower patterned paper and I used some Thickers from the Pink-Me-Up collection. I love how this page turned out, it’s totally “Lisa”!! Thank you for stopping by!
