Scrapbook Challenge

Find Beauty In The Ordinary

Glitter and Gold and Handmade Trees


This week I bring you something a little different than my usual stye of plentiful embellishments and carefully constructed color palettes. The photos themselves are a little different too. My husband wanted to take some photos where he could experiment with using back light. We went out to some hills behind our house at sunset and he shot these photos. I like how the light catches my transparent kimono while my face is in silhouette. 


I used scrapbook paper by Recollections in Blue Ombre Canvas and used a colorful piece of paper by Fern Martin as a mat. The photos were matted on variegated orange paper from Paper Studio's BeaHUEtiful stack and then edged with Lumiere acrylic paint in Sunset Gold.  To create the tree branches, I hand drew and cut them from a piece of wood grain paper from Paper Studios' Dendrology stack. I used 2 sizes of leaf craft punches from Recollections and raided my stash of paper scraps to create the leaves. The titles is a sticker from Stickabilities Inspirational Quotes.


This page was done for Creative Embellishment's August challenge. I absolutely love this oil painting by Leonid Afremov. I was really drawn to all the colors and used them as a basis for the color palette of my own page. I used blue as the primary color just like in the painting and layered other colors on top of it. I maintained the tree motif and incorporated the colorful leaves into my own page as well.


That's all for now scrappers! I hope you enjoyed the page!
