Beautiful Fall Layout | Jana McCarthy

hi everyone, Jana back again and i have a new Layout to share. Our theme for today: cutfiles and stitching. I used a pretty Subscriber CutFile and i used it as it is, just white plain cardstock. I knew i wanted to bring in a lot of bright colors and so white was the best pick. I am working with the awesome October 2019 HipKits and i love the bright colored leaves and all of the pretty exclusive pieces!


I stitched the pretty Hip Kit Club exclusive Acetate leaves on white cardstock and cut them out. I wanted to have the true color on the page and this is the easiest way! I really love how the stitching looks on top of the layered leaves.


The photo shows my little one, last week at a walk through the forests… the sun was shining so perfectly between the trees, leaves and the pretty colors! I placed the picture on top of the CutFile and placed the bright colored leaves close around it. The mixed media on the background was created with the stunning Lindy´s Stampgang Colors from the October Color Kit. I smudged some white acrylic paint on the paper to fade out some of the dark dots. I love the messy look…


I also added Puffy Stickers, DieCuts and Chipboard Stickers. The tiny black hearts are just the perefect little touch. I let the thread ends on the leaves and this is giving some nice texture and a messy look.


I love this tiny cluster on top of the picture. So much fun to work with these pretty leaves, the stitches, the colors… oh my! I need more of them!!


That´s it! I really had the best of time getting this page done…
Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting!
