Our challenge to you is to create a project inspired by any aspect of fall. How about texture like fabrics, burlap, courduroy or stitching. Then there is color with hues found in autumn leaves, fall berries and other late season delectables. Patterns or motifs such as leaves, pumpkins, wheat and more. Try to use these attributes in fun and interesting ways that may be a little out of your normal comfort zone. We look forward to seeing what you come up with!
One of the things I love about Autumn is the colors, weather getting a little cooler and the wonderful sunsets. Although I can't capture all of that on a card, I did want to try and capture the colors. I love the rich vibrant hues that can be found.
Here is my card
I have the origional set of Out on a Limb, so my sentiments are a bit small, but it still beautiful. I am VERY tempeted to get the larger version LOL! I love the scene that was created.
I had some fun alcohol inks laying around my home for quite some time (a few years LOL) and I hadn't really played with them at all. I just saw a video from Jennifer on how to use them and I just had to give it a try. The colors and shimmer that it created was stunning. It really captured the colors of fall for me and I am so glad I finally played with them. I love the silouette that was created. It reminds me of a fall sunset right outside our home.
Can you see the shimmer produced from the copper fixative? I used pearl fixative on the grass section. This is so shimmery and beautiful. I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with.
It's a good life!
