Autumn Leaves are Falling Down

Hello

I have another autumnal card to share today.

For my tile card, I started by cutting 12 pieces of card, each 2 inch square (twinchie size), from 4 different shades of green.  I then used some Spellbinder leaf dies on each square cutting theshape over the edge to leave the negative shape.

I cut a further 12 tiles and painted with shades of green acrylic paint, leaving lots of paint strokes for added texture and interest.  I mounted my tiles together using 3D foam tape to add height and arranged them into a grid, then mounted all of them onto a piece of card and patterned paper.

I painted the chipboard letters to co-ordinate and arranged them onto my grid with skeleton leaves.

Thanks for visiting.

See you again soon.

Tumbling Leaves

Hello

I love Autumn and the sound of the leaves crunching on the ground as my dogs charge through them.  I love the beauty of the season with all the different colours; greens, reds, oranges and yellow and that was my inspiration for this card.

I started with the background using acrylic paints and a Gelli Plate.

I cut the Sizzix tree die in brown and random Spellbinder leaves in a yellow card stock. To colourise the leaves and give them more of an Autumn feel, I dabbed randomly with watercolour paints.

I arranged them on the card having ‘fallen’ from the tree and I painted the chipboard letters in the same way and arranged on brown handmade paper, which I had cut randomly.

I hope you like it.

TTFN.
