Fluffed Up for Autumn

I instantly fell in love with the falling leaves cut file from Pretty My Page.  I played with the file in Studio and cut out lots of leaves on vellum.

Whilst the images were still on the cutting mat I coloured them with Shimmerz (and a couple of Mr Huey's too) paints and mists.  I peeled them off the cutting mat when they were partially dry and left them to dry completely.

As they dried they curled up and went all crunchy - just like real Autumn leaves!

I made two layouts with them... one on light kraft teamed with copper alphas and sequins.

And another on white carstock.  I adhered the leaves with small glue dots so they could remain curly and dimensional.

I could have added more embellishments but, honestly, the leaves are so fabulous I didn't want anything to detreact from them and the photo!

This is my favourite photo of old Daisy Girl.  How I miss her naughty garden antics!

Here is the video...

Thanks for stopping by!
