Back in October I went with some of my sisters in Christ for a weekend getaway. The scenery was just lovely once the weather cleared up I was able to get some really great pictures. This pic was before the weather cleared but none the less it was a reflection of our trip. I wanted to try something different with this layout. I take a lot of scenery pictures and really wanted to enphasize nature. I took an element out of my photo and magnified it using my QuickKutz leaf die. ( I got this die on clearance some time ago but I did find one here.) The cardstock for the leaves was a piece of Kraft from the Kit, I stamped the leaves with the Penny Black letter background stamp. I highly recommend having a letter stamp such as this I have used it to create entire backgrounds, accent die cute pieces, flowers, envelopes all sorts of things. I used vintage photo, spiced marmalade and forest moss distress inks and finished up off with Heidi Swapp Gold Lame. The Gold Lame is the bomb its really metallic and has a beautiful finish. I know I will use it for the holiday. Say hello to the Awesome Splendor Layout.
