MMDT Challenge #19: Fall in Wisconsin

THEME:  Basket Weave

 

Create a page that integrates a woven aspect. This could be done with large strips added directly on the grid, or it can be an embellishment added to the page.

 

Element options – Include the following elements:

 

  • Patterned Paper
  • Fabric or ribbon
  • Chipboard

Don't you just love the colors of fall??

 

 

I started with 2 sheets of patterned paper that I absolutely love and have saved forever waiting for just the right moment. They are from the Mellow line by Basic Grey...came out maybe 4 years ago. Never could figure out what to do with it...cute kids flying kites and walking dogs with trees changing colors and piles of leaves paired with a coordinating paper with an all-over floral print. So when I saw that we were to create a page with a focus on weaving, I thought these would be perfect.

 

I used Paprika Grid Paper partnered with Green Paper Tiles and the FALL 4 letter word cornerstone, all from www.snapncrop.com. I used the page pattern at the bottom of this page: http://blog.tamipotter.com/design_each_moment/2013/04/creating-different-borders.html. I followed the instructions exactly, and this is how it turned out.

 

Now for the embellishments. The woven patterned paper was already discussed; the ribbon was an orange fuzzy fiber that I bought years ago from a scrapbooking company called Leaving Prints. The chipboard owl came from Stampin Up'.

 

Boring he was as a piece of naked chipboard, but I embossed him with New England Autumn hand-blended embossing powder from a company called The Keg. Look at him sparkle in all his autumnal glory!!

 

My photos are a combination of fall at the Flower Farm in Mukwonago, WI, where I used to work, and my trip to the Apple Barn Orchard and Winery in Sugar Creek, WI.

 

Do you see the size of that sunflower?? Enjoy!

Love that huge sunflower! Great layout and the cute paper and fuzzy twine makes the weaving look perfect. Your mat colors tie it all together too:)

I love this page! It is so pretty! And, I have that exact same paper from Basic Grey in my stash ... too cute to get rid of, but I have yet to come up with a nice use for it.

The weaving and fiber border look great - they fit right in with your fall photos, and I love your "boring chipboard owl" turned "fabulous" by embossing powder.

Heather! Beautiful, beautiful page! I love it. Then again, I love all of your work. I can hardly wait from challenge to challenge to see what you come up with! The basket weave is just gorgeous. Love the colors and I love the green colr behind the FALL letters. Great job!

Hi Heather, been thinking about how early the fall color is coming this year and it's nice to see you capture some with this layout! I love how you've spruced up your chipboard owl, and your weaving did come out just like the example, but I have to say it's the patterned paper and your choice of grid paper to go with it that I love the most. It's perfect!! The photos bring their own fun, the rusty yellow wagon under the tree with yellow leaves so nice! Well done!!
