Hello … bonjour! We’re starting September with a delicious new challenge at Time Out … this time we’re Inspired By Words … ‘Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year’ (Chad Sugg). Here’s where I went with this quote …
I smooshed a piece of watercolour card with coming-into-autumn leafy colours, die cut it with new and NBUS Concord & 9th Layering Leaves, and kept all the pieces in place with tape. The leaves were allowed to scatter themselves along the side and bottom edge of a white card panel edged with Lawnfawn‘s Stitched Borders … and I adhered them where they fell. The sentiment’s from WPlus9, heat embossed to give it some dimension … and I added splatters across the panel using some of the colours that were in the leaves. The panel was popped up on craft foam and I was done! The eagle eyed among you may spot that a little part of one of the leaves is missing … I only noticed after I added the picture here … and after there had already been quite a few clean ups in my craft space … d’you think anyone will notice??
How will our seasonal phrase inspire you? You can use any or all of the words to get your creative imagination going … and then just play along! This fortnight, we have a generous sponsor … Michele at CAS-ual Fridays is offering the winner (as voted for by the DT) a $25 GC! All the details are over at the Time Out blog, along with creative cards galore from our fabulous DT and our talented (and returning!) Guest Designer, Rema from Paper Panache … hope to see you in the gallery!
I’m playing along at …
