The Seasons

This is my entry for this months Challenge which is called 'The Seasons'

I created the backing card using a Clarity leaf stencil and laying down different colours with stencil brushes. On this I matted my main image using the boy and bird stamp but I only stamped the boy, I then drew in the lines and added the cut out coloured maple leafs to give the impression that he has been caught on the breeze. I toyed with the idea of adding the 'Autumn the year's last, loveliest smile' but decided less is more on this occasion.

Thanks for taking the time to look, I hope you like it and any feedback would be much appreciated. 

Hope to see you again soon.

Lavinia Stamps Challenge 10 - 'Autumn Colours'

Well there's another month nearly gone. When I entered the last challenge I said 'Autumn will be upon us before we know it' and here it is. My favourite season of the year. 

Well it's been a good week for crafting, started off by a fab workshop run by a Pauline Butcher, the first of many for her, she is sure tone a great success.

I started this card at the workshop, it was supposed to be a Christmas snow scene but I kind of went off at a tangent resulting in an Autumn Sunset.  I then stamped  the Harietta silhouette as the focal point, added some land and foliage and finished it off today with a bit of bling. 

Finally it was matted and layered onto black card and placed on a white base card.
