I’m so happy that fall is here, that the leaves are in full color, the air is cooler, the scent of burning wood is in the air. Everything feels cozy. The very best thing about living in Nashville these past 5 years has been getting a bit of this seasonal change.
Of course I don’t know for certain that is my last fall season in Nashville. But if I have anything to say about it, next year I’ll be back home in Orlando where fall consists of blooming golden rain trees and cooler temperatures in the 80’s.
So this year, I wanted to pay tribute to this season I love, while I am still here.
I had grids on my mind when I was planning the page. At first the photos were going to be big and take center stage, but as I started playing I realized I loved this paper and somehow the photos got smaller and the paper took up more space. Sometimes it can be about the pretty paper too!
I know that I broke a few design rules here. Namely, trapped white space. I was actually trying to give my photos a little room to breathe. But because this trapped white space is within a grid, it’s not really bothering me. The eye can see the overall grid and fills in the empty space. And since it’s my layout and there are no rules in crafting (says me), I just let it be.
I used my Sew Easy to create a zig zag border. I also added a couple of dry embossed squares, inked up with distress ink. All the pattern paper comes from Jillibean Soup’s Apple Cheddar 6×6 pad. One of the things I love about 6×6 pads is that the patterns are scaled down and easier to use in small squares like this.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
