I'm still making my way through the Oakley Avenue collection, and I had some time to create a new layout earlier this week.  I wanted to work with the Leaf Pile cut file from The Cut Shoppe, and mix it with some products from the Oakley Avenue collection.  And there's something really unusual about this layout...I didn't use any patterned paper!  That's something I haven't done in a long, long time!

Since the papers in the Pretty Little Studio collections are not sized to 12x12, I decided to use a White cardstock background for this layout.  Then I cut the Leaf Pile 12x12 background from a second sheet of White cardstock.  Initially, I thought I might add in some patterned papers behind the cut file or add some watercolor, but in the end, I really loved the White on White look.

I decided to go with some of the embellishments from the collection, to bring in pops of color.  The Fall Florals stickers were the first thing I grabbed.  I knew the Red and Yellow colors on the flowers would look great against the White background.  I mixed some of the wood veneers, stickers and fussy cut leaves around the photo, to create a fun visual triangle.

And for some extra pops of color, I finished the layout with some scattered Harvest Pumpkin sequins!  I really loved the final effect of the pops of color against the White background paper and cut file!
