Gratitude Friday -Grace

Happy Friday, friends!

Today I’m talking about a fun layout inspired by thankfulness and grace. Fall encourages me to breath in the crisp air and slow down a little. I took the photo in this layout while on a church retreat at a monastery. Talk about experiencing slowed-down stillness.

I started with white cardstock and splattered some Shimmerz Coloringz in Moody Mauve across the middle section of my page. I then added some scraps of wood grained papers horizontally with the paint.

I stamped some plus signs in silver before I layered some Crate Paper “Gather” ephemera underneath my picture, along with some Pink Paislee “C’est La Vie” ephemera. I was a little hesitant to mix that teal with the mauve but I love how it turned out. I also really love the gold accents from those collections.

After I had my picture where I wanted, I began embellishing – my favorite part! I used some cork confetti and sequins from the shop, along with some wood veneer stars stamped silver + some gold enamel dots.

I finished off my layout with some stitching, the perfect finishing touch! I hope this layout has inspired you to seek grace and gratitude during this beautiful time of the year. Be on the look out for some new releases in the shop. I can’t speak for every DT member but I will certainly be including some gorgeous new products in my next project.

P.S. I did a brave (and scary!) thing and ventured into the world of filming process videos. You can check this quick video out here.
