... 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.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.
