My second take on the challenge was a 12" scrapbooking layout:

For highlighting the rich autumn colours on the photo I decided to leave the background completely white. I continued the branches on the picture by drawing them on the background with a black marker and colouring them with yellow and red Promarkers. For lifting the coloured stems from the background I outlined them with light blue colour. I thought about adding some black or yellow paint splashes on the background but then decided to leave it and go with the white and clean version.

The large leaf stamps are from a Stampendous stamp set. I stamped them on pieces of coloured scrap paper, inked and coloured them and cut out. Before gluing the leaves on the bottom of the page I crinkled the edges on the palm of my hand.

This project was fun to make! Loved sketching the stems and leaves. I think I need to spend more time just drawing :)

Wishing you a nice weekend!
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have time to leave a quick comment; it would make me so happy!



  1. Awesome Elina. Love your hand-drawn branches and leaves ... that is such a cool effect how you have them extending from the picture. Your die-cut leaves look real with the texture you've given them from crinkling. Great job!

    1. Thank you Loll. This sure was a fun layout project to make. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Gorgeous layout .... I love how the branches extend from the photograph. xx
