What do you think of when you think of autumn? Leaves falling from the trees may come to mind, such as their slow, spiraling drop from far up. You may think of cool breezes, pumpkin patches and apples during these cooling months. There are a wide range of ways you can use these different symbols to create a unique, thrilling work of art that accurately sums up that particular day or event. Depending on the overall feeling you wish to convey, you can choose a variety of autumn papers that would fit perfectly with patterns, shapes and more.
Use a fussy cutter to create a variety of designs for turkeys, leaves, pumpkins and other fall symbols. You can use these combined with autumn paper that features different patterns, such as leaves in varying sizes or small flowers. You can combine gorgeous autumn colors with brighter shades of orange, pink, green and purple for a deeper dimension for your Thanksgiving photographs.
Be sure to include a picture of everyone enjoying the meal! For a simple look, you can use a single, solid piece of autumn paper behind 4 photos evenly placed about the page. Incorporate two journaling pieces, a blocky “FALL” emblem and some cute, leafy embellishments to really bring the page together.
Whether you prefer the intricate, detailed scrapbook pages or the more simple, yet eloquent pages, you can use autumn paper to meet all of your scrapbooking needs. The best colors for autumn paper seem to be dark or bright orange, depending on your photo contrast, along with earthy browns and greens.
