Hello, everyone! Today is Thanksgiving, an important autumn holiday in the USA. I'm looking forward to spending the day with my family and remembering all the things for which I am thankful.
Before I start celebrating today, I want to share with you an autumn layout that I had published in the October issue of Scrapstreet Magazine. I was very honored by the fact that, besides being featured in an article, this layout also appeared on the issue's table of contents.
Every once in a while, I make a "hybrid" page like this. For the most part, it is a traditional paper layout. The "hybrid" part is the computer-created text (on the cornfield photo) and the computer-created collage. I could achieve the same effects with traditional scrapbooking supplies; it's just easier to get a neat look with the computer. It also reduces waste, in that I don't have to throw away the scraps that would be created by hand-cropping the photos into a collage.
I have another autumn-themed layout in the current (November) issue of Scrapstreet as well--do check it out at this link, if you get the chance. In fact, check out the whole issue--it's full of inspiration. In particular, I'd like to draw your attention to layouts by Mary Jo Rhoda and Lisa Swift, who are frequent commenters here on Green Crafting.
