Hello and welcome. Gosh, what a difference a day make. 24 little hours. Is that a song? Anyway got up this morning to find piles of yellow leaves on the ground. There's been a few fluttering around the last few days and we have kind of noticed perhaps a few yellow specks in the trees but suddenly you can't avoid the fact that Autumn is coming. I don't want to admit it's here. Although why not? It's a wonderful time. Still picking a variety of fruit and vegetables. The pumpkins are looking good and there's the harvest party still a month away. Any excuse for a party I say.......
Quite a few challenges out there looking for autumn colours and over at Cheery Lynn it's all about texture. Now CLD have a big range of embossing plates but unfortunately I don't have any... yet. Got my eye on a few beauties. So I decided to make my own textured background using CLD Dreamcatcher #2 die
I cut lots of the dreamcatcher die from fairly thick card and then stuck the feathers on a piece of white card. Then I added a couple of layers of crumpled tissue paper.
Then I coloured some more tissue with various red, yellow and orange DI's, ripped it up and stuck it down. Hope you can see the texture of my autumn leaf background ;-)) It looks really fab in the real.
I cut a fancy frame using Crafts-Too Frames 9. The words are bubble stickers. I used the dreamcatchers in the corners, embossed and attached with leaf brads and some butterflies cut with CLD Mini Dimensional Butterflies die. There's a little bird on a twig as well, cos over at Joan's Garden part of the recipe was a tree or bird. So there he sits.
