October Layouts with Paislee Press

It is the last week of October, and I am reminded once again why I love documenting so much.  In addition to telling stories, I truly love the colors of Fall.  

I have three layouts to share with you this month using Paislee Press products.

I like to use 12 x 12 inch photos as a statement piece in my albums - letting them tell the stories on their own.  I don't worry about resolution if the image speaks to me, regardless of the quality.  I took this photo with my iPhone, and it brings me right back to this day, and that's why I do what I do - to capture memories that mean the most to me. I could care less about technical details.

Here is a closer look at each page of this layout.

I am still working on my  6x8 inch mini-album, of our anniversary trip to Greece this summer.  Hoping to have this completed by the end of year to share in more detail!  

For the photo on the left, I used the Paislee Press 6x8 Minimalist Templates.  On the right, I used acrylic paint and a sheet of transparency to create a monoprint on the white space of two of the XOXO journal Cards.  This is one of Tina's techniques as a part of the Studio Calico Mixed Media Class.  

I am finding that I love adding paint and watercolor to my journal cards.  More soon.

And finally, probably my favorite from this month, is this collage of Fall images using Liz's Photocentric No. 1 templates.  This layout is 8.5x11 inches, perfect to slip in the binder with my story theme layouts.

I used my Silhouette to cut the Cozy Cut Files on printable gold foil paper.  I adhered the 'fall' and 'comforts' cut files directly on top of this layout.  Definitely a simple, yet clean, way to document fall.   

Looking forward to sharing more of my layouts in November!
