Colours of sweet Autumn

Hello and welcome. Thanks for coming by, I appreciate you taking the time to visit, with so many amazing blogs out there it's so hard to choose where to to go. Lol!

While taking photos of something I cannot show you, I arranged these around it as I thought they were just scrummy.

This gave me an idea for a tag so here we go.

I am going to enter this into these challenges.

I started with a size #12 Manila Tag which I coated in Fresco Acrylic Paints from Paper Artsy colours, Pumkin Soup and Brown shed

For some texture I used Grunge Paste through a script stencil, once dry I added DecoArt Media Shimmer Mister in Turquoise and yellow.

To this I added more Grunge Paste which I had tinted by adding Hey Presto and Chartrues through a Lin Brown stencil.

I started to play with the elements to see where I wanted them placed 

and once happy stuck them to the Tag.

I also die cut a dragon fly from Sizzix which comes with an embossing Plate - I chose not to use it this time, instead, I sprayed it with DecoArt Media spray in Yellow green and Yellow and Cyan.  I loved the colours, so vibrant! This got added to the tag.

To finish I added some bling, and coloured fibres. I also added a red bow, as the colour draws the eye in, says Dina Wakley on her radiant faces video.

I loved making this and really had to stop myself filling it up with more of everything lol. Right I'm onto another and will see you again soon,  take care!
