A Persimmon Page By Marcy Penner

Hi bloggers! Happy Saturday to you! I’m pleased to bring you a scrapbook page design from a new guest designer to our Simon Says Stamp blog, Marcy Penner! I love the thought she put behind not only the design of this layout,  but the photos she took, and how well they coordinate with this Persimmon BasicGrey collection! Please join me in welcoming Marcy Penner as a guest on our blog!

Enjoy!

I love fall.  It’s by far my favourite season.  Lots of layers and hot chocolate… how can that be bad?  I knew I wanted to use the BasicGrey Feathers and leaves for this page.  I started by layering my photo behind two pieces of Persimmon patterned paper (I added a scrap of a book page in there too for good measure).  From there I picked alternating corners and worked in.  On the top I started on the left and worked in… a cluster of leaves and feathers, one of my boys’ initials and my journaling.  On the bottom I started on the right… a cluster of leaves and feathers, my other boy’s initials and then my title.

I love mixed handwritten and typed journaling, so I did a little of both on this page and added some paper strips along the top and bottom to finish it off.
