Gathering Leaves


Greetings! There's a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu, and the Pink Team has stepped up to the challenge to create projects for the theme of "Celebrating Autumn."  Please stop over and check out their beautiful projects, and I hope you will be inspired to create one of your own.  I just love this time of year and really enjoyed working on this canvas.  I began by smooshing most of the recently released Seasonal Distress Paints onto a Craft Sheet and then spritzed with a bit of water and dredged the canvas through the paint. Several Tim Holtz Stencils were stenciled onto the canvas with Distress Inks and the honeycomb stencil, also by Tim Holtz, was embossed with Embossing Paste that was tinted with Gathered Twigs Distress Paint.  The stamped images are by Finnabair for Prima.  The gorgeous clip art is by Gecko Galz.  I hope you will join us and submit a project that celebrates Autumn. Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful fall season.  Hugs, Yvonne

The Gecko Galz images are so beautiful, doesn't that front one look as though it is almost glowing?
Beautiful colours Yvonne.

This is lovely, Yvonne! Love the main image and the layered ephemera... and the sunburst shading creates a gorgeous framing effect.

Yvonne, wow, I love this background. I have tried so many times to do this and well the bin is where my attempts end up! But you do this so skilfully and then just seem to know how to pull it all together-so creative x
