Hello there people!
I know that all of our American fans are gearing up for Thanksgiving tomorrow! And, I know that many of you are SUPER busy with all your prep - BUT everyone needs a break from the frenzy, right!? Of COURSE you do! And, if you're here, that means you are spending your precious break time with us, which makes us feel SO thankful!
Now, let's make that Thanksgiving Eve break a great one! I have used several new products from DCWV to create a whimsical, autumn layout - complete with some festive feathers and a beautiful photo-real background.
Let's take a quick look at some of the supplies I used for this project:
DCWV's new fall stack: Sweater Weather (6x6 & 12x12)
DCWV's Mini Adhesive Mirror Stars (LOVE!)
DCWV's Stencil: Damask
Now, I loved the rustic beauty of the leaf 12x12 paper that I chose for my background and pretty much all of my choices for everything else referenced that paper. I love how the light plays out the leaves and the different colors all blending together to create this rich, abundant pattern. I went with those themes that this paper made me think about: rustic, handmade embellishments, whimsical surreal patterned letters, and soft metallic and mirrored elements that catch the light.
Please take a look at how I created this layout:

And here are the photos for more viewing pleasure:
It was easy to create such texture using the various special material stacks available.
I loved how the bits of white picked up all the veins in the leaves.

Thanks so much for sharing a few minutes with me today - we are so thankful for you, the DCWV fans. I think I can speak for everyone on the DT and say that we are so encouraged by your support and your comments on each of our projects. For all the love you show us - thank you.
And, to those in the USA - have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
