Monday Inspiration by Beatrice – Playful Autumn

October 22, 2018

It’s Monday, and I’m excited to bring you layouts featuring Karen’s latest Collection Playful Autumn which is a collaboration with Linda Cumberland.

Playful Autumn Collection

Playful Autumn is currently on sale at:

Snickerdoodle Designs      Oscraps      Gingerscraps

As always this is a versatile Collection, packed with papers and elements ready for you to scrap all of  your autumn memories. The CT has created some gorgeous pages which I will show you here, hoping to spark your creativity.

I don’t think anything speaks autumn to me more than a child playing in and tossing the fallen leaves as in this layout by Zanthia. I like the way she selectively placed the frame over the masked photo, highlighting the focal point. Her cluster at the top edge of the page holds the title just right. The smattering of falling leaves echoes her theme.

There is something so appealing about photos of a covered bridge as in this layout by Cathy. I like the background she created by masking some of the papers and adding one of the edgers found in the Collection. The circle scribble helps to highlight the cluster while the flower scatter completes the horizontal shelf. The word bits sprinkled about are ideal for her journaling.

Fall would not be complete without a trip to the pumpkin patch recorded in this layout by Deanna. The scene she created across the bottom of the page is so cute and I like the way she kept it large and at the same relative scale as her photo. Using the journaling strip as she did moves the eye across the page and the stitching across the bottom edge helps to frame the layout.

Jenni chose an unusual yet fitting subject to feature in her layout. I’ve not seen a magpie but I checked and a few have been spotted here in MI. However they are more widespread in AU where Jenni lives. They are considered to be one of the most intelligent animals so obviously worthy of a scrap page. I like that the photo is large with the framing placed over the focal point. The cluster down the side of the page is gorgeous and I like the stacking and blending of the background. The little bit of lace tucked in the bottom adds texture to the page.

This page by Rochelle features a lovely family photo which deserves to stretch across the width of the page. I like the flow of the page created by the curved papers at both the top and the bottom of the layout. The clusters placed on opposite corners move the eye diagonally up and down to take in the entire page.

I really like the stacked and framed photos in this layout by Linda C. The brush-work behind the photo is stunning and the page border is subtle yet works so well to frame the page. The vertical cluster beside the photo is delicate and pretty and I like that she included the bird and repeated it on top of the frame. 

I’d like to say that I’m enjoying the season here in MI but it seems we have actually gone straight to an early winter with gray skies and cool if not cold temps. I hope where you live you are finding better weather and taking lots of photos to scrap with this gorgeous Collection. Thanks for reading along and have a great week.
