Gossamer Blue Gramercy Road Collection

My hubs and I took an overnight trip to Denver for our anniversary this past October.  We were in downtown Denver to visit his favorite record store, Wax Trax, and I snapped this photo intending to capture the street sign, but instead got the beautiful blue October sky.  It was such a gorgeous morning.

The Gramercy Road collection by Gossamer Blue really captured the feeling of the photo, soft Fall colors in a combo that I really love.  I started by using the Autumn stamp and Mama Elephant ink in Hazel, stamping a few random circles on the background paper.  Then I cut strips of the papers, layering as I went until I had the photo mat I was going for.  Adding the Tim Holtz mini clips gives some small embellishments that don't detract from the layout.  I added the cork circles in a visual triangle on the layout and last came the leaves.  I just glued them at random to give the soft, floaty feeling of falling leaves.  The metallic stickers in the collection give the layout a bit of shine and I was done.
