Feeling Fall

I LOVE fall. And I've been craving it for awhile. My first assignments for DCWV were to use the new stacks available at JoAnn's - Autumn Melody and Bewitched - so it didn't take long to fall into a groove. Ha! Pun not intended ;).

First, I made a printer's tray. I painted it with Glimmer Mists - Tattered Leather and Suede. I loved the gold sheen left behind because it matched the foil on the papers in the Autumn Melody stack perfectly.

I used the Autumn Melody sticker pack to create my title and embellish one of the openings. Every square is backed with Autumn Melody papers and then filled with bits and pieces I had in my stash.

Next, I created a card. I used more Autumn Melody papers and stickers. The sentiment is SRM Stickers. I love using DCWV stacks - it makes a string of coordinated projects so easy to put together :).

I used the Bewitched stack to create a Halloween layout. Although the stack also includes a spooky purple and green, I went traditional with just orange and black. This framed out pattern was perfect as a base.

I simply added some squares of other patterned papers, as well as a bit of netting, and my photo was matted. The title is SRM Stickers and Thickers.

It was so nice to delve into fall colors and themes for a little bit, especially since the weather here is still decidedly summer. Well, I'm off to do more wedding prep! Bridesmaid necklaces are almost done, the boutonnieres need to be assembled, and the bride's hairpiece needs to be sewn. I'm loving all this crafty stuff :). Have a good one! Tessa
