The On Trend Team of Practical Scrappers is headed back to nature today with a fun assignment to try: TREES!
While looking through my photos ready to be scrapped, I came across this photo of trees. Funny, right?! I decided to take a literal approach, posting this picture along with several others of my nephew's first fishing trip.
BoBunny's Trail Mix collection won me over, and I haven't stopped creating with it. You can see a few projects made with the collection here and here. While flipping through my leftover hoarded supplies, I found this 12x12 tree paper. How convenient! I used it as the background and brought in a pice of the bark paper as well. This is one of the few layouts that I didn't plan before gluing items down. Therefore, it's a little crazy and jumbled, but it came together in under 15 minutes!
Just a note about my nephew in this picture. He LOVES behind held this way, and for the first few months he would cry if he wasn't laying in this position. I call him the expert planker. That bottom picture cracks me up every time!
I added a Dear Lizzy tag to the layout with foam risers in place of a traditional title and then placed Trail Mix die cut stickers around the layout. Before placing the sticker down, I used my fingers to round the corners. This gives a little dimension to the otherwise flat stickers.
Head over to the Practical Scrappers blog to see how the other design team members took on this trend! Thanks for stopping by.
