Autumn Scrapbook Page (Non-Digital)
The other day I showed you a picture of a digital scrapbook page. This time I thought I would go for a real, made of paper, page. This took a long time to do.
Having chosen several different autumnal coloured papers I proceeded to cut them into strips that were then folded over. It is a bit like Iris Folding but without the pattern to follow. They were stuck down onto backing sheet in a chevron pattern. The ends of the strips, in the middle, were covered with horizontal panels to neaten the whole thing up.
The photograph, of a street where I used to live in France, was matted onto a suitable coloured card and added to the page. The tags are embellished with some snails and leaves cut out on a Sissix die cutter.
I was very pleased with the effect of this. There is a partner page too which I may well put on the blog another day.
