Another week has flown by, I don't know where this week has gone!!
I can't believe how cold it has gotten so quickly! I am such a cold frog,
if this is the start of winter I am not looking forward to it!
I can't believe I have managed to get another colour room challenge done this week!! I love the colour palette this week!!
This is of my beautiful Grandparents!!! They were married for 64 years before my Grandad passed away 2 years ago! I love their wedding photo, it is very special to me!

Leaves from our silky oak tree and grasses from the yard, Gold Rub & Buff, Brown embossing powders, Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Doily #1 - DA0479
Hinges - DA0509
Leaves - DA0508
The Hinge was embossed with a coulpe of different embossing powders, I did these a while ago so I can't remember exactly the ones I used here. The hinges with the red brads were inked with old Paper Distress Ink. The leaves were painted with Gold Rub & Buff.
When adding a lot of different layers a tip to add more depth is to create as many corners as possible, always place your pieces off center from the last piece. Even an extra small square of PP poked in behind the corner of a photo can add so much more depth to a page and helps to frame a photo.
When I work with layers like this I stick from the top down, I will add a bit of tape to the front of the first piece going behind the photo and stick it to the photo!
I then stick each layer to the photo from the top down.
Another tip to adding clusters to your page is to balance them into triangles on your page. See how the 3 red flowers form a triangle, this helps to add visual balance to your page, as well as adding elements in odd numbers, eg in groups of 3 or 5 etc. (again see the 3 red flowers)
Also when you are adding clusters to your layout give them a purpose and connect them to something, like the edge of the page or photo or to balance a shape within your layout etc rather than have them floating in the middle of no where.
I hope these couple of tips have been able to help you, just yell out if you have any questions!
Thanks for Stopping By!
