Branching Out

Welcome to Tuesday Tips! I love this picture of Breuklyn. She is growing up so quickly. I really wanted to incorporate a tree into this layout, but I have used trees on my layouts time and time again. I needed a new approach. I really wanted to think outside of my traditional scrapbooking supplies to create something a little different.

I believe that sticks from my backyard definitely qualify as "branching out." Get it? ha ha ha ha. It really doesn't take much to keep me entertained. Really, it doesn't.

I used DMC embroidery floss to attach the sticks to my cardstock. I like the extra texture that it adds. I stitched all of the leaves onto the tree using the same floss. I had a lot of fun creating this layout and I really liked that it looks different than other layouts that I have created.

Think outside of your comfort zone, you might be surprised what you will come up with! Happy Tuesday!! :)
