This is a photo heavy post with not much technique involved so with a very few comments, I'll let the photos speak for themselves. I wanted to create a project that really showcased all the beautiful papers in this collection.
It has so many wonderful colors and patterns. It's probably the most beautiful fall collection of designer papers I have ever seen. It features 18 double sided sheets.
I love the way the blue jean blues have been blended in with the traditional warm neutrals of autumn.
I used the Vintage Cabinet Card die and the mini Movers and Shapers companion to cut my main panels.
Both of the die cut panels have been mounted on fairly heavy chipboard, also die cut to line up perfectly. This gives the accordion fold piece a good sturdy base.
The leaves were die cut with the Tattered Leaves die. All edges were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I used a lot of little embellies from my boutique as accents. I didn't go crazy with the embellies because I wanted to let the beauty of the paper shine through. One of the embellishments was a lovely feather from a baby peacock. When we lived in Miami we had flocks of peacocks roaming the neighborhood. The babies shed their fluffy baby feathers and I used to find them in our yard occasionally. You can't see it but it shines with peacock blue at the end.
I couldn't resist adding a rustic touch with a small strip of burlap.
And there you have it! Sorry to be late with the posting, but this project took a lot longer than I had planned. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
