Oakley Avenue | Changing Colors

I am having so much fun with my Oakley Avenue collection from Pretty Little Studio!  I have a new layout to share today, using the Leaf Pile cut file from The Cut Shoppe.  The collection and cut file were perfect with the photo I snapped, of a fall leaf that was found on an afternoon walk.


Instead of cutting the full background cut file, I just cut three individual leaves.  Then I backed each one with various papers from Oakley Avenue.  I knew I wanted to layer my photo over the leaves in the background.  Then I used a mix of the Breezy, Rusted, Golden and Vibrant letter stickers for the title, as well as the Firewood Alphas...which are my favorite!!

Once I had the title finished, I embellished around the photo with a mix of wood veneers, cut aparts, die cuts and a flair button from the collection.  I also decided to add a bit more leaves to the layout, so I fussy cut several from the Leaf Love patterned paper.  After placing the leaves, I noticed that I had ended up with a heart shape!  So I decided to machine stitch around the design to help define the heart shape.

Do you have a favorite from the collection?  Mine would definitely be the Firewood Alphas and the Fall Away Arrows!  You can grab your favorites over in the Pretty Little Studio shop!
