Falling in autumn

Hi everyone,

It's already autumn and in the Netherlands we have a very nice late kind of indian summer. But the leaves are beginning to change color and start to fall. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog has got a perfect challenge to go with: "Falling in love with...".  What colors, textures, and products are you inspired to craft with this fall?



The warm colors of autumn are so beautiful, but not the weather that goes with it. Although we still have very nice weather here, autumn soon will show his true colors.



I started to build the background with the Blocked Circles of Simon Says Stamp and Barn Door and Mustard Seed. I love the way Distress Ink blends into each other. So subtle, beautiful!



The next step was Washi Tape. This gives such a different look to it. I love the effect the Distress Marker Spritzer gives, I used with Dot Fade and Spiced Marmalade.



When I came up with this sentiment, I didn't realize in how many ways you can interpret it. Love that! But all in the positive way of course!

  6. I've pinned this creation to remind me to use my washi tape! You always incorporate it so perfectly in your work and this post is a terrific example of that.
