Monday Inspiration by Beatrice: Painted Autumn

November 13, 2017

SnickerdoodleDesigns has started something NEW on her Facebook Page!

Go to Karen’s Facebook page, and click on “Start Right Here.”

Each month Karen will be featuring several kits, with special pricing.  This month there are four kits featured: Winter Wonderland, Pumpkin Patch, Painted Autumn and The Long Road Home Collection which is a collaboration with ADB Designs. The November features are priced at anywhere from 25% to 75% off. Be certain to check the expiration dates since they vary based on the kit or collection. While these kits may be available at all of Snickerdoodle Designs’ shops, the best prices are found at her personal shop here.  I decided to feature Painted Autumn quite possibly because I want to keep winter at bay!

Autumn by willow features such a pretty photo. I love the effect of the reflection in the water. The leafy brushwork balances the pretty cluster opposite. I really like the way it’s placed at the edge of the page. The simple blue frame sets off the photo just right. The artist also added word art by Kimeric Kreations to finish off her page perfectly.

Autumn by Norma is a delightful page. It’s interesting how different the leafy brush looks when a shadow is added. I like the pop of blue in the flowers which contrasts beautifully with the orange in the leaves. I like the paper stacking behind the photo and the clustered scene placed in the front. The text entitled Autumn is ideal for the theme.

The diagonal design in Autumn by Lisa is very engaging and places the focus on the lovely photo. I really like that she kept most of the embellishments large and her shadows are outstanding. I like the ribbon-tied foliage and the way she added the scatter to emphasize her diagonal design.

The blocked design in Kabra’s layout was achieved via a Droplet Template.  If you haven’t checked these out yet just click through the link. You will be amazed at how quickly you can create stunning and professional looking layouts. Kabra combined several gorgeous photos with some of the kit word art and placed just a few embellishments on top. I think you will agree the end result is exceptional.

I really like the photo treatment in Micah’s Smile by Deanna. She also used a template by Christaly Scrap. The artist was able to include quite a few of the kit embellishments while still directing the eye via the stitched down circles to the sweet photo.  I like the way she used the clothespins to clip the leaves to the string across the top of the page. 

Smile by 6grand, shows off the blues in the kit.  She also used a template by Heartstrings Scrap Art.  The blended paper she used for her background is included in the kit. I like the large letters forming the title across the bottom contrasting very nicely with the smaller photos. I also like the split, horizontal design of the page. The clusters are dainty and pretty and placed to assist the eye in moving around the page. 

I hope I have inspired you to check out Painted Autumn while it’s still on sale. Have a great week and I’ll be back with more inspiration next Monday.
