Around here Fall usually last for a pretty long time, we swing between the 50's and 80's more then most so I take full advantage off all the season's inspirations. Leaves are my very favorite thing to use on layouts too. Have you seen all the fun layouts around. I was totally inspired by this one! The colors on Nina's page are just scrumptious! And this one by Wilna Furstenburg! Wilna offers an art class too on two peas that looks amazing! I'm leaning towards taking it over the next few weeks. When you pull out the Gelatos and start getting the hang of using them they really do become so fun to use!
For this layout I painted a page to use behind my cut out leaf page. I simply love the effect. I love it so much that I created a few more layouts after this one! hee hee I'll share more later in the week.
I tend to lean towards colors not necessarily for fall so I had to infuse a little wine along with pink and mustard yellow.
I added a little machine stitching to my leaves for some extra texture and dimension.
I wanted to add more and more leaves but I didn't want to lose the effect of the painted page or cover it so I only used a few.
I'll be back to share more over the next few days. With a spotty internet connection I really have to plan my post ahead of time so I don't get behind and I wouldn't want to do that! Ha
