My Inspiration
“Autumn” from the book “How to scrapbook”

Sketch 1
Done in Adobe Photoshop

Sketch 2
Done in Adobe Photoshop




The season when leaves fall from trees; autumn.

Some of the Supplies and tools I used were:

Hand decorated paper Painted Paper Techniques
Decoart Americana Acrylic Paint
“Although not labeled as such, Deco Art Americana paints are acid-free.

(Info from Deco Art’s chemist).” – Rebecca Baer
Plaid blending chalks “Autumn”
Leaves punched shapes, leaf and letter stencils.
Hint: Punch leaves from card-stock
and use the negative space to create a stencil.
White, dark brown, mustard and orange card-stock
Photos, black acid free pen, “Make it Special” mounting squares,
Ruler, scissors, pencil,


I use a Fiskars® paper trimmer, which I use with each layout.
I used a plastic see through grid.
Here is mine.

You can print one on a transparency, remember to use the transparency setting on your computer.
I also used a light-box, which you can see here.


I used a toothbrush and three different coordinating colors of Decoart Americana Acrylic Paint to splatter paint onto white card-stock.
I made four pages of each, here you can see the orange example I used in this layout.
