Hey there chaps! Each time I get a new batch of sequins from SpiegelMom's I fall in love with one of the mixes a little bit more than the others. My most favourite of the latest bunch is Falling Leaves.
For this layout I wanted to use a lot of Falling Leaves to give the effect of, you guessed it, falling leaves. The name really is spot on! I pulled out a sheet of vellum and some coordinating supplies from my like for ever kit. I also cut this months exclusive SpiegelMom Scraps cut file. I stacked two on top of each other to give me a panel as long as my page and cut it on vellum.
I made my photo cluster and tucked in a doily coloured with the same range of colours. You must know by know I love to colour my doilies to match my projects and they take every medium I throw at them without any complaints.
When I knew the size I was working with I added some subtle ink work on my background using the packaging technique. When that was dry I stuck a few Falling Leaves sequins around my page. I knew with a large shaker pocket in an album most of the sequins would fall straight to the bottom. By glueing a few around the page I ensured no big blanks, and when you shake it a few of the loose sequins catch on the glued down sequins which is an extra bonus.
I clipped the vellum to the background and ran it through the sewing machine leaving a small gap for filling. I added and shook, and added a few more, then sewed up the filling gap.
From there it was just a case of glueing all the elements together and adding a few stickers. I definitely get the feel of fallen leaves in the large shaker pocket, do ou?
Thanks for stopping by!
