Beautiful Memories

Hello foxy Friends!

It's autumn, slowly you start seeing the amazing colors outside.

So for me it's time for a Fall layout.

I started applying "clear" gesso on my background and let it dry. After that I used a stencil and distress Oxide (colors, 'Walnut stain and Rusty Hinge) for the background.

When it is dry I make some more splashes with the distress oxide and used a brush.

Now it's time to cut the photo to size together with the design paper. I distress the edges of the design paper with a distress paper tool to give more dimension to my work.

After that I punched out several leaves with the bigshot (you can also use your cutting machine) and colored them with 3 kinds of ink sprays. I chose the colors, brown/mustard, pink and lime.

I also punched leaves from vellum and stitched them with golden thread to the colored leaves. This gives a beautiful 3D effect.

Now it's time to put the photo, the design paper and the leaves on the layout.

I used the great forest perspectives with the golden leaves, pink twig and the golden perspextives word "Beautiful".

At the top of this page I used a metal dies from the bramble Fox dies set #3. It looks like a strip of a notepad. I love it!
