October scrap main kit with Christin Grønnslett - part 2

Christin here with my second layout with the  October Scrap Main Kit. What I love about working with kits is that there are so many possibilities when it comes to choosing your focal colors.  For my last week I went grey, hotpink and yellow. This time I wanted to focus on some fall colors with yellow, brown and I added a gold touch to it.    

I started with a background with different shades of brown, yellow gold and orange and pick out the papers in the kit that would fit with a fall theme.  I found both grey, orange, yellow, red and different blue tones that fit a fall palette.

When I work with backgrounds I usually just drop mist on a white cardstock prepped with clear gesso and then use a waterbrush to cover pieces of the paper, then I use stencils for another level, then stamp and last add more drops of mist - this time without brushing it out, but this time I wanted to really get the gold feeling so I embossed the numbers with gold.

When I work with layers I have a couple of different strategies that I use.  Here I mostly just added papers that were slightly bigger than the one over. but not for the last layers, just to change it up a little. Other times I change the size of the papers more and have different sizes. What is so fun about working with layers is that as long as you add lots of layers, you can't really go wrong if you don't fill the whole page with it. The whole idea of layers this way is to have one focal point and let the eyes rest.
