Grove of Patriarchs


We spent a day exploring the Grove of the Patriarchs (in Mt. Rainier National Park). It was so amazing to see all those huge trees. We were definitely hugging trees! =)

I incorporated this MDS Monday sketch (MDSM008), into my first page.  Here's the sketch:

The Challenge called for using this sketch along with using the 'Rip Photo Edges' Option.  I used this technique on all the photos in this two-page spread.

I also used the 'Freeform - Add a Brush Layer' option to place color under the leaf stamps.

Thanks for taking a look!

Supplies used:
Background Paper - Woodland Walk DSP #11
Punch - Circle (filled w/Woodland Walk DSP #2 and #8 and Very Vanilla)
Stamp Brush Set - Autumn Harvest (leaves - Garden Green)
Freeform - Add a Brush Layer (Certainly Celery underneath all the leaves)
Font - Herald (Early Espresso)


  1. Perfect papers to compliment your photos! We just visited the Redwoods in CA, our pics were very similar. :) Thanks for joining MDS Monday this week.
