Celebrating Fall with Petaloo and Authentique

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps! Today I am celebrating one of my favorite times of year. Which of course is Fall. In Michigan we enjoy glorious foliage and cool crisp air.  Also everything is pumpkin spice so that’s a win win.  I’ve created a tag and card using the gorgeous blooms from Petaloo and just perfect seasonal patterned papers from Authentique.  I’m also incorporating some yummy mixed media supplies to alter metals and chipboard pieces to coordinate with warm and rich patterns of the papers.

The burlap from the Daisy Layers adds a wonderful textural element and creates a nice base layer for the more dimensional flowers.

To balance the arrangement I added a few more of the layers to the top just tucked under the chipboard frame.

The larger Blooms are the centerpiece for this arrangement with a few Spring Berries , twine and altered die cut shapes.

This tag would make a lovely home décor element displayed on a mantle or shelf with a few pinecones and pumpkins.

I’ve also created a card……

I’ve layered the papers here with the sweetest image of a vintage girl harvesting wheat.  This was the inspiration to choose the flowers to coordinate with the rich patterns and warm colors.bountiful_blessings_thanksgiving_greeting_card_authentique_petaloo_pollys_paper_studio_02

 

The key to this arrangement was mixing textures, styles, and trims.

More flowers here mixed with metal embellishments and fussy cut images that have been accented with mixed media supplies.

I really had such a lovely time creating this set of Fall projects tucked away in my shop with classic radio programs and little space heater.
