What a great topic on the Country View Crafts blog this month. Mixed Media with Autumnal Hues.
So many possibilities here and something a little different for me.
Die cutting has never been my "Go To' style of crafting, but, I see many beautiful examples everywhere and feel urged to introduce it into my work.
I began by choosing a Die Set from Sara Davies' Signature collection, Autumn Morning, Foliage memories. It gives you a framework and also many flowers and leaves to add to it.
I also chose to use one of Tim Holtz papers as my background. It is from Wallflower paper stash.
I began by cutting out my framework from Black card and then used lots of autumnal colours and bookpaper to cut out some leaves and flowers.
I like the contrast between the image and the black frame.
I added my flowers and leaves around the image, also some little white mimosa type flowers to give a 3D effect and centred some of the flowers with a few assorted jewels.
I finished off with a few words from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Small Talk.
So, I can enjoy die cutting, and with these dies, it was a pleasure.
Thanks for looking and please pop over to the CVC blog for more Autumnal Inspiration.
