The Last Leaves




Hello all!  I think this is probably the last autumn project for this year...

I don't seem to have got around to as many as last year (well, that'll be the whole moving house nonsense, I suppose), even though I love the autumnal crafting colours and all those fabulous leaves. 

I've just got a sneak peek for you here at Words and Pictures, so if you've got time to hop over to The Artistic Stamper and have a look, that would be brilliant.

I'm hoping to be back later today with something else... so I'll maybe see you again soon!

Autumn is the hardest season. The leaves are all falling, and they're falling like they're falling in love with the ground.

What a wonderful goodbye to autumn, Alison!

Had a close look (and then a second and a third) over at the Artistic Stamper's blog and am begeistert!

Strange thing is: I would have had the time but didn't do a lot of autumn projects either this year. Not too sure why.

Have a wonderful sunday!

Margaret said...

Just came back from seeing the whole project! This is fabulous and I love the leathery texture and aged pages!

Kezzy said...

Just been over there, wow really gorgeous, the colours are awesome and the mini journal is amazing. When I am protecting my background I use multi medium for over paper and paint. But if I use dylusions or distress I use crafters companion varnish spray. For some reason it doesn't make them spread. It also makes the colour really bright. I reckon any spray varnish might do it. Just an idea lol. Hugs :-) Kezzy xxx
