Scrapbooking, This Way

ThisWay
 
I made this page for another great color challenge with a fall theme going on over at the Memory Nest right now.  I was really inspired by the gray color.  It isn't a color I normally think of for fall, but I loved using it as a base.  I stamped a bunch of leaves onto the background to bring out the orange, but the laves were a bit too distracting, so I ended up water coloring some of the page orange to tone down the leaves a bit.  I also painted some vertical lines yellow to mimic the corn even though yellow wasn't exactly in the color challenge.  Finally, if you look at the upper right corner you can see I made a spot for the map.  I tried to make it in such a way that the map would hide the little bit of blue and pink that was on that paper.  I couldn't find any other way to hide that blue and pink.  I didn't have any embellishments that were big enough to cover it without loosing the grid work.

I had a lot of fun adding a variety of embellishments.  My favorite is the Doodle Bug brad.  I also am loving the title.  It totally reminds me of bending my way through the corn maze.
