"Family" Fall Layout | Nicole Kerr

Hello Shimmerz Fans!

Nicole here and today I have a fun fall 12x12 layout for you!
I recently purchase the popular Happy Fall Hot Buy paper pad from Michael's Craft Store and it just so happens that Shimmerz Coloringz in Mama Sings the blues and Oh Say Can U Sea are the perfect blue combination for some of these papers! Those beautiful blues were my inspiration for today's spread. Here's a close up of my final layout...

I began my prepping my white paper with gesso. Once that was dry, I layered Coloringz Oh Say Can U Sea, Coloringz Mama Sings the Blues, Inklingz Miner, Miner 49er and Inklingz Penny 4 Your Thoughts for my background colors. I followed that by gluing down squares of patterned paper to add more texture and layers. I found the "Family" cut file from the Paper Issues store online and cut it 3 times with my Silhouette. I glued all 3 layers together to form more of a chipboard type title. Since the background was already so busy, I wanted to keep that white. I used my Shimmeringz Baby's Breath and misted the title to add shimmer! I love my Baby's Breath mist!! It adds the perfect amount of shimmer to anything! Once I placed my title and photo, I went thru my stash and added some fall leaves and other phrases and chipboard pieces for embellishments.  I've been pushing myself to use up a lot of older collections in my stash, so these pieces are from discontinued collections.

Here are close ups of my final layout:

And here are the fabulous shimmery stars of the show:
