What I may end up doing is adding a second page (maybe a pocket page) to go along with this layout with more fall photos of my kids/etc. I like to do that sometimes, we'll see.
I played with that stencil that came in the Golden Delicious classic kit (Daily Diary kit is still available). I simply took this Tim Holtz blending tool, dabbed on some ink (also from the kit), and applied using a circular motion (you could also use a dauber).
Now, I am not a huge technique person so trust me when I say this is very easy to do!
What I like is that the paper that I applied the ink on is textured so it shows through in the ink from the stencil.
And there you have it - a layout about nothing special, just a fun photo that has meaning for me and my most favorite time of year :)
Don't forget - subscriptions for the January-June kits are open but won't be for long (just 2 days left)! You can head over here to sign up for these great kits!!!
