Fall Colours!

Fall has always been my favourite season, the colours of the changing leaves the sun and crisp air is amazing!

Earlier this month my husband and I celebrated 17 years together, and managed to spend some time enjoying the changing season before the rain started here.

When Lori brought these Prima Leaves into the store I was instantly inspired..

I actually drove out to the store to get some before they sold out!  While I was there Lori showed me some of the stores newest laser cut chipboard, how perfect are these?!

With new leaves in my hand and a few other goodies I picked up and my recent anniversary I dug out a wedding photo and got to work!

I had picked up this tin heart a while ago and decided it was just right for this project!

I started the canvas by adding a thick layer of crackle paste.  Once it was dry I stamped it using Archival Ink in Black, then sprayed with a couple different colours.

I used a few different sizes of the laser cut chipboard leaves, coating them with Distress Embossing Powder in Walnut Stain & Antique Linen.

The flowers all got colour using different sprays, they started white…love white flowers and customizing them for my project!

You can’t tell but I also gave them some shimmer using Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist in Antique Gold & Copper.

I had to throw just a little steampunk in with all the flowers!  That windup toy key just works if you ask me!

The title ‘Our Wedding Day’ is also from the stores laser cut chipboard, the font & size was absolutely perfect!!!

Hopefully we will see a few more sunny days so we can all head out and enjoy the beautiful fall season!

Fall leaves…

Hi, hello!  Happy Wednesday!

I’m back today with a layout to share with you, that I made using some handmade embellishments!  I actually presented a class on handmade embellishments last year, so you know it’s a thing I love.

Another thing I love is Peel Off stickers.  I’ve mostly only ever used them on cards, but today I thought I’d color some up, cut them out and use them as embellishments on a layout.

Here’s where I started.  I peeled off the stickers and laid them onto Bristol Smooth cardstock because I planned to use my real brush markers and that paper allows the color to blend before it soaks into the paper.

Then I cut the leaves out with my fine tipped scissors.

(Because of the difficulty of cutting all the white bits out of that bottom leaf spray, it will likely get used somewhere else, on a background of matching white cardstock where the white doesn’t show up so much.)

Oop!  There’s that precious boy again!  Look at that dolly baby!!

Lets focus on the colored leaf embellishments, shall we?  That’s what we’re here for.

I’ve been hoarding those gold word stickers from Crate Paper, doling them out to myself one at a time.  Today “fun” got pulled off the sticker sheet and used!  They’re so pretty though, they can’t just be used on any old page!

Some of the other supplies I used are:

Patterned papers from Webster’s Pages (blue), BoBunny (green), gold polka-dot vellum (maybe Lori remembers?)

Elizabeth Craft Peel Offs

Word stickers from Cosmo Cricket, Authentique, Echo Park (this moment, fave photo)

Chipboard alphabet stickers - Thickers, Elf

gold word and heart stickers - Crate Paper, Oasis

phrase stickers - Teresa Collins, Crate Paper, Basic Grey

Chipboard “Discover” label - Crate Paper

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
