|My son Colin in 2005|
I'm back with another layout using the gorgeous Scraps of Elegance September Kit, "Falling Leaves".
|Coordinating Paper Add-on|
I started with the beautiful "Fall Postcards" paper from Prima's Amber Moon collection available in the Main Kit . I then made some die-cuts using the "Into the Woods" paper (also in the Main Kit) and the "Pumpkin Season" paper (in the Coordinating Paper Add-on). As usual I layered the die-cuts over a dark cardstock version and offset them slightly to accentuate the edges. I also applied some brown chalk ink around the edges of the die-cuts and the background paper.
The seed stems were made with the microbeads included in the Main Kit. I used the wired stems off some old flowers from my stash, coated the ends with Beacon's 3-in-1 glue and poured the microbeads overtop. To make the thicker ones, I wrapped some floral tape around the end of the wire before coating it with the glue and microbeads. I stuck the bottom of the wires into a sheet of styrofoam until the glue dried. I then lightly coated them with some fluid matte medium to help keep the microbeads from falling off.
The chipboard piece was from my stash. I painted it orange and then inked over it with some darker orange and brown inks to give the colour some dimension.

The coconut buttons were also from my stash. All the flowers and other embellishments (Amber Stones, ephemera) were from the Floral Add-on and Elements Add-on.
Thank you so much for taking a look!
