Design Team Monday (on a Wednesday)!

The ladies are back this week with a Style Challenge for you!


Pages with the Naturalist style get "back to nature" through earth tones, speckled paper, and monochromatic colors. Naturalist pages often incorporate texture by using handmade papers, fibers such as jute, ripped torn or sanded edges


The Naturalist style is fun and easy to work with. Now is the time to incorporate all kinds of things natural like feathers, leather, cork, wood, paper, old book pages, small pebbles, corrugated cardboard, butcher's string, fabrics, dried orange or apple slices, dried mushrooms, dried beans, small cinnamon sticks, tiny pinecones, etc..

It's time to let our creativity go wild!! Here I found some old left over wood plugs for wood floors, they weren't too thick... perfect for my layout! I was also rummaging for a feather, I never found it but I came across some old eucalyptus that remained rubbery, it worked out pretty good, the colour is just what I needed. A really fun project for a very touching photo...
