Autumn Fun

Hi there,

It’s still feeling pretty warm this October with only a few days of rain and lots of sunshine. We’ve been making the most of it playing outside in the leaf litter. I just loved this photo of my little boy making leaf angels.

2017-10-20 17.23.39First I used my silhouette to cut out this free template from Paper Issues in watercolour paper and painted them with different autumnal colours.  I spritz the background with some gold and red Colorshine spray as I’m not great with white cardstock. I waited for them to dry before sticking them down a little and sewing over the layers with my machine and included some cool large copper sequins and some butterfly and leaf sequins I stole from my sons sequin stash.

2017-10-20 17.23.16I didn’t mind that the stitching was a little messy and organic. I added more droplets of mist over the leaves and added more small sequins in orange and gold and some Nuvo drops in a lovely yellow/mustardy colour. I also added some foam squares under the leaves to give them a bit more dimension.

I matted my photo with a few scrap layers of paper including one vellum piece and added some rub on stars, some cotton thread, thin wood pieces and some phrase stickers. I loved how it turned out and just made me happy!

Thanks for reading
