[the family tree]

I just love Scrapware's Tree Trunk.  Its open branches allow you to create as many or as few leaves to fill its canopy.  In this project, I have showcased a few of my favourite family photos by trimming them into a large leaf shape.  I have cut additional leaves from coordinating patterned paper - these leaves have been folded in half, inked in brown and mounted on foam tape to add dimension.

Scrapware products featured:
CH31 - Tree Trunk Large
CHmini-k - Mini Birds

One of Scrapware's Mini Birds is nestled in the tree trunk.

To create the patterned background, simply use scraps of patterned paper cut to 1/2" widths and layer upon a neutral cardstock.  Enjoy.
