Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Cut a 4 1/2"-wide strip of burgundy paper and glue it horizontally across the orange patterned paper, placing it 1/2" from the bottom of paper. Mat a horizontal photo and two 2 1/4"-wide pieces of journaling onto yellow cardstock, leaving a 1/8" border all around. Glue the photo in the center of the burgundy strip, then glue the pieces of journaling angled to overlap the photo.
  2. Mat two vertical photos on burgundy paper, leaving a 1/8" border. Glue across the orange paper at the top of the page, leaving 2" between them. Mat a 2 1/4"-wide journaled title on yellow cardstock, leaving a 1/8" border. Glue horizontally between the photos, about 2" from the top and overlapping the inner edges slightly.
  3. Chalk a large yellow leaf with brown, adding color to the outer edges of the leaf. Repeat with a small yellow leaf. Add dark orange chalk to a medium green leaf, and green chalk to a medium brown leaf. Add brown and green chalk to a medium orange leaf. Use Zots to attach all the leaves to the page, placing them above and underneath the page title and overlapping them on the edges of the photos.
