Season of Mists...

... and Mellow Fruitfulness - To Autumn - John Keats

The SWAP theme for this month was leaves and would you know good old Tim Holtz decided I'd need a tutorial for some Distressed Leaves, wasn't I the lucky one?

First I swiped lots of autumnal coloured Distress Ink Pads on my craft sheet sprayed with some water and then dabbed the two halves of a piece of A4 white card in the mixture.




I splattered with some gold paint using an old toothbrush.

Then diecut a load of leaves using the various dies I have.

I decided to make a tag which I embossed with a woodgrain folder.

I added a little hedgehog mooching around in the leaves as they do.

Hessian braid and raffia added to the Autumnal feel.

Your photo doesn't do it justice, it is beautiful. I have it on my shelf.

Hope you enjoy what's left of your evening. Sue
