Autumn inspiration

Fall is my favorite time of year, I love the crisp, cool weather and the colors. Living in California, we don't really get changing leaves but I can live vicariously through magazine photos, and pictures, lol.

I am frequently asked what my favorite colors of glimmer mist are. Of course, there are so many beautiful colors to choose from, and it depends on what I'm working on, but if I had to choose three of the colors I use most, it would probably be the ones I used in this layout: Patina, Olive Vine, and Peach Delight (with accents of Creme de Chocolate). I love these colors so much that I decided to decorate my living room with them. I also used my go to glimmer screen, the large swirl from the master set of glimmer screens and the decorative corner clear stamp from Tattered Angels. I simply sprayed a 12x12 piece of ivory cardstock(I used colormates light totally tan)with patina, olive vine and peach delight randomly over entire page letting the colors blend together slightly. I sprayed the large swirl screen with creme de chocolate glimmer mist and used the stamping technique to transfer the image to my page on the left side. I stamped the decorative corner image using versafine ink in vintage sepia at the top right corner. I sprayed a paper bag with olive vine, patina, and peach delight in the same fashion as the cardstock. I then stamped the leaf image(stampendous)over the glimmer misted paper bag and cut them out. The "Give Thanks" and "Family, Friends, together" image is a foam stamp from lil' davis. I am planning to add this years family photo from Thanksgiving day to the layout. Here are some other photos of fall projects to get you in the spirit of the season.

If you have any questions about how I created these projects please leave a comment and your email address and I will email instructions to you. Enjoy!

I'm finally finished moving, my computer is finally working, and the New Moon Movie is FINALLY almost here. Wow, what a crazy October and November it has been. I'm still unpacking, but my scrappy room is almost up and running. I should say scrappy garage(yep, I'm outside again)and of course that is the most important right? My computer has been down for almost a month, and I'm really glad to be back in the loop, lol. So this is the big week for all of us Twilight fans, New Moon opens Friday, whoohoo! I have been not so patiently waiting for what seems like forever. I was hoping to go with some girlfriends to the midnight showing opening night, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen, so my husband(thats right, Mr. antitwilight) has graciously agreed to take me this weekend. I will finally get to wear my Team Edward t-shirt. I'm sure he will be thrilled about that, haha. Well, I have some new projects that i've been working on, and I will post those tomorrow. I'd love to hear from you, so please leave a comment! Thanks all, for all the support and well wishes during my move.
