Hello everyone! I have a layout to share with you that is monochromatic in design with just a hint of colour. In Australia, we have moved into the season of autumn which is the paper inspiration for my layout. I pulled out all of the brown from the Vintage Autumn Collection and played around with them until I decided which ones I wanted to use.

To create the shape of my patterned paper and contrasting cardstock, I used The Crafters Workshop Trendy Bracket stencil. I inked the edge with Prima dark bark ink and used sewing scalloped scissors to create the scalloped border around the edge of the dark brown border. I have used regular scalloped scissors in the past and have found the sewing scissors gave me greater control and accuracy in my cuts. I also inked this Scrapmatts title using the Prima ink as well.

Not only are the Maja Design papers beautiful but the negative side of the titles are beautiful as well! I trimmed one to create one of my titles. I fussy cut one of the clocks from the collection as well to create an embellishment. I added a Prima and Green Tara flower.


To frame my photo, I used Spellbinders Card Creator Heirloom Legacy die. I love the details it has.

I inked a Prima Shabby Chic Treasure using the same dark bark ink to make it look aged. As you can see, I also inked my other papers with the same ink.
