For the sketch, I used the beautiful fall colors of the Urban Autumn line by Lily Bee! I wanted to play up the really bright leaves in my photos. These are the beautiful Sassafras trees at my parents house. Every year they are the first to change color and they have the most intense colors or any kind of tree I have ever seen! There are some great hiding spots and places for "forts" in there, too!
I used my NEW Silhouette Cameo to cut the leaves on the background and then backed it with patterned paper. Then I splattered some white and grey paint on the page.
I used the sketch to place my papers, and decided to keep the four squares of the sketch all the same pattern. A chipboard embellie from American Crafts, and a brad from Crate Paper!
