..:: this is fall ::..

 Hi Friends! I am up on the Paper Issues blog today with this week's Scraplift Sunday!  I had so much fun making this one. Here is a look at my layout:

And here is the inspiration piece by Lacy:

As you can see, I took this super fun summer layout, and fall-ed it up! I stuck with the same basic design with just a few changes. Here are a few close ups.

I stitched around the squares, similar to the inspiration piece, but I made it messy, because that's more my style! I also added like tangled thread behind each letter.

I am using the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Daydream collection (you can still get some of it here) and some Distress Oxides (also available here). This is a look at the specific inks that I used:

I did a fun technique!  First I applied gesso to the page and then I "stamped" the ink pad right onto the page. It created an imperfect square. Then I used some water and a brush to soften the edges of the squares and blend the inks. So. Fun!
