Autumn- my favourite season

I love the Autumn. I love the colours; the oranges of pumpkins, the yellows and reds of the leaves. I like the sunny evening walks, kicking up leaves and picking up chestnuts. I tried to capture some of the feel of autumn in my LO that is hot off the press tonight (and therefore captured under awful light and I'll re-do it in the morning).

Autumn layout

I started with a piece of Sassafras mix and mend 'fancy free', which I tore to a size about 9x5 before inking the edges with VersaMagic Jumbo Java. I positioned the ribbons and lace and attached them with glossy accents, foam squares and staples. The photo is mounted on a piece of pizza box to give it height, and to allow the prima Rossevelt to tuck behind it.

I tucked a Deluxe design circle base behind the photos and rubbed on the adorn it alphas for my journalling. The 'autumn' in the title is painted with acrylic and once it had dried I inked the edges. I squirted in the top and bottom corner with glimmer mist and inked around the edge of the cardstock. I used glossy accents to stick some red sting on the top corner of the LO and to stick an acorn embellishment as if hanging from it. The chipboard and sticker flowers and buttons are dotted around the LO to give it more depth and interest.
