Hello there! Nathalie DeSousa with you today with a new project that celebrates Fall and it’s glorious colors. It is not a secret that Autumn happens to be my most favorite season. It is the cozy feeling, the clean cool air, the beautiful nature, and of course the phenomenal colors. So, I combine a few of my favorite Fall feels with some Vicki Boutin for American Crafts products in this new page call Autumn Fun. Fall Sunsets are some of the most beautiful, so I borrow the colors to create the background for this page. Well when we think Fall, we think leaves, so I used one of Vicki’s new stamp and die sets (Shine) to create the embossed leaves in the background, and then used her Watercolor set to recreate the sunset on the background. While the background dried, a few more leaves were stamped and color using the same tones of the watercolors used in the background. At the same time, the title was created from a Silhouette cut file. A bit of watercolor was added -so that it matches the tone of its placement on the background, and then handstitched. The picture of my daughter and littles (my niece and nephew) was backed with papers from the new Vicki Boutin Field Notes collection. Once the title and picture were set on the page, I used all the leaves to create clusters around the page and then added small embellishments from the new Field Notes collection to complete the clusters. To complete the title, the word “FUN” was created using the All The Good Things collection alphas and some of the stamped leaves. The entire page was then matted on the Collect and Document paper, followed by a few lines of journaling, and some touches of gold glaze to complete this Autumn Fun layout.I hope that you are all ready for the new season, and to check Vicki’s new Field Notes collection! As for me, I will be on a long walk through the forest drinking some PSL.
