Fall scrapbooking layouts featuring Indigo Hills 2

Fall scrapbooking layouts featuring Indigo Hills 2

Hello crafty friends!  It's Jung here, and today, I'm sharing 2 fall layouts I created with the gorgeous Indigo Hills 2 collection.  This collection is so beautiful and perfect for fall colored layouts!

For my first layout, I was inspired by the elongated hexagon wood veneer.  I chose the bigger sized piece, and traced it onto a scrap piece of cardstock.  I used that template to cut out the same shape and size out of some of the pattern papers in the collection.  I used the Glen, Valley, Gorge, Ridge, Meadow, and Eminence.

I decided to use a blue cardstock for my layout, because it worked well with the photo and the colors in the IH2 collection.  I splattered it with some gold ink, and then I arranged the hexagon in a random pattern, trying to make sure none of the same patterns were right next to each other.  I machine stitched through some of the hexagons.  I also decided to hand stitch some hexagons in 3 of the spots.

Next, I backed my photo with the gorgeous Ridge paper, and adhered it to the layout with foam squares.  I added my title, using the gold puffy alpha stickers and mini puffy alpha stickers.  

I finished my layout by embellishing my photo with just a few things...I really want the hexagons to be the star of the show (along with my photo).  I added a few chipboard sticker accents, a tag from the journaling spot embellishments, and another one of the wood hexagons.  

 

For my second layout, I decided to make some layered hearts embellishments.  I die cut different sized hearts from the papers: Gorge, Ridge, Eminence.

 

I used the negatives of the hearts that I die cut as a makeshift stencil.  I mixed white embossing paste, with just a little bit of the lavender watercolor, and added some hearts to white cardstock.  I love the texture that it gives.  I also watered down some more of the lavender watercolor to add some splatters onto the page.  

I typed my journaling on my typewriter beforehand, directly to the background.  I backed my photos with the Ridge paper, and adhered them to the layout towards the top and all the way to the right.

I embellished my layout in a diagonal across my layout.  I filled in the spaces with the layered hearts embellishments that I made, and a flower cluster that I fussy cut from the Glen paper.  I also added the rainbow from the ephemera pack.

I wanted to add more hearts to fill in some of the spaces, so I used a few from the chipboard stickers and the puffy sticker packs.  

I slightly embellished the photos with a couple puffy stickers, and a few ephemera pieces.  For my title, I used the mini puffy alpha.

To finish off my layout, I added just a little bit of doodled hearts to mirror the sketchy flowers that I fussy cut.

That's it for me today.  I love how my layouts turned out.  The second layout's story is a hard one to tell, but I'm glad I got it down.  I hope I've inspired you to get crafty!  

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a great day!

Love these two layouts – the first one so striking and the second one so sweet! It’s the special, extra things you do that make them stand out – using the wood as a template for all those beautiful hexagons, sewing, the heart stencil and stitched hearts. Your color choices are wonderful, too, especially on that first one!
