All Spruced Up *OUAS*

Hi, Welcome back...Today, Im sharing with you a layout that I made for the "Once Upon A Sketch" for the month of August. I really enjoyed making one last month and Nadia's sketches are so beautiful! 
The sketch has a lot of negative space and so that was a bit hard for me to keep exactly the same as the sketch. So I added a little bit more to it, but generally it is the same. 
So here is the sketch this month: The theme is seasons:


So here is my interpretation of the sketch. I chose winter as my theme. I recently made some beach themed layouts with fences and I didnt really want to make another of the same kind. I have seen beautiful winter fences with lots of garland and ribbons for the christmas season. That is how my whole layout evolved...by making fences using Heartfelt Creations "Classic Editions" and linking them together. I then punched out several small ferns and glued them to the top. I added tiny ribbons in the centers. So if it is Christmas time, one must have beautiful poinsettias. I chose white with gold embossing and layered them. I only made a few because I used some of my prima leaves and I didn't want it to be overwhelming. All the patterned papers are from Martha Stewart.


Here is a closer view of the poinsettias and the fence.


More fence up on the top.


Lots of cherry lynn swirls in gold paper with a few snowflakes made with 2 different punches from bunch punch. The trees in the background are from Heartfelt Creations.


A few more stamped trees and the title/journaling. I added a few pearls to the top of the fancy tag.


I know it is a bit early for Christmas layouts but Im really glad Im doing some old photos that need to be done too!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
hugs!
