This week at SweetSassyDiva's our theme is a Scene. I created a Pumpkin Patch Scene 2 page layout. Every fall, I take my daycare kids to The Bellevue Berry Farm and Pumpkin Patch near my house. We look forward to it every year!
This layout took me 3 days and (merging) two different ideas to complete!! I changed my mind so many times I lost count!
I started with this hill from Pop Up Neighborhood (found in the Accessory Function) sized at 5.00h x 11.49w. I copied a second scene and flipped it.
I opened up a new Layer and took the shift layer of the Accessory Function and put the hills on my mat twice. I flipped the second one.
I opened another Layer and put the Accessory Layers on it twice. This was the trees and trunks. I flipped the second layer. I positioned the pieces on my mat by color for easier cutting.
Once I cut out the hill layer (without the trees) and set them on my workspace, I thought there was too much sky showing. I cut another set of hills.
I needed some other pieces for my Pumpkin Patch, so I opened up an old file that I started but did not use. I tried to cut the wheat from Pop Up Neighborhood, but as you can see below the paper tore. I liked the barn, pull cart and the tractor. I thought I might use the pumpkins but changed my mind.
I went back to my first file and added these pumpkins from Pumpkin Carving. I welded two sets together (sized at 1.24 inches) to make a large border. I grabbed the cart and campfire from Old West, but ended up not using them. I found the Pumpkins from Chic and Scary and sized it to 6.32w x 2.18h so it would fit across the top of my 4x6 photo.
I journaled on the hay in the cart. I pop dotted the barn and some of the pumpkins.
I added twine across the bottom. I filled in the pumpkin border with some additional pumpkins.
I used some lime green stickles to color the stems on the pumpkins.
I have been saving this cloud paper for some time ~ glad I finally got to use it!! Thanks for stopping by!
