OLS10 - Turning to Fall



Cheryl has given us a timely challenge for OLS this month - Turning to Fall. The perfect opportunity to dig out those gorgeous fall colours!

I was inspired by this photo from my Pinterest inspiration board.


I created my leaves by cutting out 'stencils' using my Avery Elle Modern Leaves dies and some post-it paper. I sponged the leaves in Fired Brick, Ripe Persimmon and Mustard Seed Distress inks. I added a bold, graphic MFT sentiment in Soft Suede.

I hope you'll join us at OLS - the deadline is midnight on the 24th - lots of time to be inspired and play along!
