Here I am again folks with the last piece of my banner. Hels has invited us to do something that makes us happy. Well I have to say Autumn does that for me. I love the temperature 'cos I'm no good in the heat. I love the colours and the smell and how the trees turn into beautiful hues and stamping on scrunchy dried leaves and splashing in puddles and conkers and acorns and berries and hot soup and the smell of bonfires and I could go on and on. I decided to emboss my banner first with a leaf plate and then did it again and cut out some of the leaves for dimension. Then I put my hand to a few distress inks that are the right colour and splashed about with them!
I chose Dried Marigold, Ripe Persimmon. Rusty Hinge, Peeled Paint, Bundled Sage and Gathered Twigs. The sentiment is from elusive Images and the large leaf that has been layered with sticky pads is from Tim's new blueprint set. I rubbed some viva gold paste here and there but it hasn't shown up in the photo.
Then I tried to photograph the whole banner, and what a job that was! In the end I laid it out on the carpet which has photographed very badly, but I hope you get the idea!
I love it when a project comes together! My next challenge is to climb over all the heaps stuff in the craftroom and find a space on the wall above the shelf to hang it. I shall photograph it when it is up but I guess that won't be today!
Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday. x
