Scrapbook Circle put out a challenge to try to use this shape in a layout and I couldn't seem to stop at just one layout. Had to keep going so here are the two I came up from this months amazing kits, New's Flash, Bulletin, and Happening Now (Happening Now is sold out, but the other two are still available)
I think these have been my favorite kits to date. I just love the mix of colors, patterns and embellishments. There was NO shortage of inspiration for October!
Without further ado.....
This first one is my son rock hopping in the Salt River. We were driving home from the White Mountains of Arizona and took a little break at the bottom of the Salt River Canyon. It was the perfect place for a young man to let off some nervous energy.
I always have a favorite little bit from a layout and in this case, I think it's the stitched triangles at the end of the row. Just a simple detail but it makes me happy.
Roughed up the edges of some of my layers this time. Haven't intentionally done that in a while.
I also layered the hand cut triangle with some vellum for dimension.
This page takes a different approach. I actually stamped on the backs of all of the triangles using a triangle stamp and then cut them by hand. I then placed them on my page, glued them down and then stitched for good measure.
Overall the theme is neutral and yellow but I did throw in a few hints of pink and blue for interest.
I got pretty excited about leaving the excess thread on the front of the page in an artfully arranged tangle.
Thanks for stopping by, I'll see you next time.
