Today and tomorrow I'll be sharing with you some projects that I had published in the August 2012 issue of Scrap n' Art. The layout I'm sharing today is a called "Trees of Summer."
I photographed these groups of trees at the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. I love all the different shades of green represented among the foliage.
I used lots of shades of green in my layout, and I also added summery splashes of orange.
I added a bit of whimsy, too, with butterflies, flags, and a cute little owl.
People always talk about how beautiful trees are in the spring, when they are in bloom, or in the fall, when leaves are changing colors. But I think it's important to appreciate the "everyday beauty" of green trees in the summer, too.
