Fall Layout

This is my mom as a little girl with her family. I think it is so sweet.  They look all dressed up and I decided to create a fall layout with this photo.

My fall layout uses a stencil, some gold leaves and a lovely sentiment

The background is a mix of pattern paper with paint smeared over the surface. I then added a layer of embossing paste with a brick stencil.  I sprinkled Aged Ochre over the surface and heat embossed. In parallel I made a series of leaves using Aged Gold embossing powder and tissue paper.  I embossed a few acorn tops with Aged Gold Embossing Enamel.  I then embossed some faux flower branches using the same Aged gold embossing enamel. I assembled together with a sprinkle of Bronze Crushed Glass Glitter.  .

Products: Stampendous Jumbo Leaves, Cherish Family, Aged Gold Embossing Enamel, Aged Ochre Embossing Enamel, Paper Artsy Paint, MFT Brick Stencil, Americana DecoArt Embossing Paste, Ranger Distress Ink - Aged Mahogany, Stampendous - Clear Embossing PowderBronze Crushed Glitter

This is my mom and I think she just looks so cute in her little hat and matching coat!

Have a fabulous day!
