... 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.
