#136 Speaking of Fall - Nature Lovers

Hi everyone! Here is a layout I created for the monthly challenge at the Cricut Circle Blog. The challenge was to create a project featuring our favorite thing about fall. I decided to go with leaves! I love the colours of fall leaves and crunching sound they make under your feet.

We also had to add some texture to our projects. First, I stamped on ivory cardstock with versamark using the Tim Holtz leaves stamps in a random pattern all over the cardstock. I then heat embossed the stamped images with clear embossing powder. Next, I used Tim Holtz Distress inks and foam applicator tools to apply several different colours to the background. I had a lot of fun with this process!

The Cricut cartridges / cuts I used on my layout are:

Give a Hoot - Tree (cut at 4.25"), "Nature Lovers" cut at 3.75", Squirrel (cut at 2.25")

Cindy Loo - Blessings (Cut at 1.75")

Speaking of Fall - Leaves (cut at 1.81")

Don Juan - 2010 (cut at 1.13")

I stamped over the squirrel with Perfect Medium using a background stamp by Stampin' Up. I then added gold Perfect Pearls and set it by misting with water.

Other supplies:

Cardstock - Close to My Heart, Bazzill
