Scrapbooking, Love Today


Happy Monday!  We survived a big storm this weekend.  The storm actually fizzled out tremendously.  Now all the leaves are off the trees!  I just wanted to share my layout for the Memory Nest.  This is the third background I made for this sketch.  My first attempt used gesso and glitter and makes for a fabulous winter page, but not so much for fall.  My second attempt I used different paper and when I went to water color on it, I got a big streaky mess.  So this is try number three!  Actually, the page looked really cool when I fist made it.  It was kind of like an abstract path going through the fall mountains.  I almost wanted to just keep it that way, but I didn't want to make a fourth background.
I did put a real leaf on this layout.  I used this super stinky spray stuff that I use for my charcoal drawings to seal the leaf and hopefully preserve it.  If it ends up falling apart, then I'll have to find some fake leaf to replace it.  I gave this page a lot of dimension to help give the leaf space so it doesn't get crushed.  We shall see how it holds up.
