Autumn




I recently found the Stuck On U Sketches blog and wanted to join the fun. There are so many talented people with such amazing ideas. I love checking out all of the variations of the same sketch!

For my LO, I used a picture of my children at the pumpkin patch. I used my Expression to cut the leaves using Stretch Your Imagination. The leaves range in size from 2 - 3.5 inches. After I cut them, I crinkled them, chalked them, and embossed them with copper embossing powder. The papers are from SEI. The letters are Heidi Snapp (rhyme upper - clear). I embossed these with embossing powder to give them the metallic look.

Thanks for looking... I had a lot of fun making this LO... I just wish the picture did a better job of showing the layered leaves. They look so much better than the photo shows them!
