Fall in Love With Fall

Hi Everyone...

Monica D here with a fall project for you....

I absolutely love the changing of the seasons. Growing up in California I didn't get to see the splendor of the fall colors like I do here in the Ozarks of Arkansas. It is truly breathtaking.

I live in a very wooded area, so I went outside and took a few pictures to use in a layout.
I also grabbed some acorns and leaves from my yard. They are everywhere!!!

Here is a picture of the finished layout...

Now for my process...

I grabbed an 11x14 sheet of mixed media paper, then went to my scrap paper stash. I grabbed all different papers with fall colors on them.

I tore the different papers and collaged them to the mixed media paper.

Next I grabbed my awesome Art Anthology mists. I used Juicy, Glorious, Cinnamon Toast, Patience, and I misted the edges with Peacock Feathers.

I randomly sprayed the mists and let them puddle on the collaged papers. I dabbed a few areas with a paper towel to absorb some of the mist.

Next I grabbed a tag and misted it with Juicy, Peacock Feathers, and Plush.

I used a paper punch along the edge of the tag, and also along one edge of the collaged page.

I added some sari ribbon, a metal clip, and a metal heart that I made, and key to the tag.

I picked which photo I wanted to use and tore the edges, then used the paper punch on the outside edge of the photo. I then sprayed some Cinnamon Toast on my Art Anthology Mat and let it absorb into the torn edges of the photo.

Next I grabbed my Art Anthology Dimensional Crystal in Olive and framed the picture with dots. I also added some dimension to the leaf with it as well.

Then it was time to glue everything down. I added the Beautiful tag with a piece of sari ribbon to the bottom of the pictures, and some embellishments around the acorns.

I used letter stickers for the words at the top of the page.

So once again here is the finished layout....

I love the versatility of the Art Anthology products and the different effects you can get using them with different mediums.

You can find all of the products I used and more  here

I Hope this inspires you to go make something in gorgeous fall colors to display in your home. This is going on my fireplace mantle.
