Falling in love all over again

I admit it Fall is my favorite season.  I love crisp days, apple picking, corn mazes, and warm and fuzzy slippers.    Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge.  is all about falling in love... I took my inspiration from Fall.


I am obsessed with die cut leaves and putting together arrangements with the leaves. 


I die cut a series of leaves in different papers and used them to create a fall canvas.  I cut the leaves from text book pages,veneer, paper and white cardstock.

I used a stencil to add a layer of embossing paste on the leaves.  I then used Ranger Distress sprays to add my autumn colors. I sprayed burlap with brown and shredded it to add some tendrils.

My canvas is a mix of mists and embossing paste over a burlap canvas.  I added a coat of gesso to the canvas before applying paste and sprays.  I then added a piece of chicken wire ribbon.

  2. Beautiful fall canvas! I have a stash of acorns that I collected last year. Just not in a fall mood with our triple digit temps. Soon, I hope.

  4. This really is very very beautiful. I'm going to try to figure out how to scale it down and flatten it a little to make a card.

  8. This is gorgeous. I love Autumn, too. I made a yummy apple cake today from apples that my son and his wife and my two smallest grandsons picked on a visit to an apple orchard on Friday. They had such fun and the apples are so good!

  16. This, in a word, is awesome! I am so in love with the color palette you chose. It's both Fall-ish and soothingly cool and calm at the same time. You used so many clever materials and I just kept smiling at the computer screen when I saw this one!
