Autumn in August
When I was cleaning up all the scrapbooking supplies Miss Phoebe and I had used recently ... and sorting things as I put them away ... I stopped and made something to perch in an autumn vignette. No, I didn't finish the cleaning project, but August in Southern Illinois has included some nice cool days and I'm in the mood for fall!
I used my Cricut to cut some pretty fall leaves and used embellishments from a kit. I printed my poem on a textured heavy card stock page and just tore the edges. I used some pages from a stack of Impressionist paintings including Monet's Haystack ... to cut the leaves, so they had some additional meaning! Notice my lace edge in the lower left of this next collage.
I have acquired a large supply of vintage lace and ribbons ... from an old flower shop that closed down and sold their inventory years ago. I also used some ribbon recently purchased at the Dollar Tree in this piece ... and in a future post you'll see more of it used in a vignette. Maybe over the fireplace! I haven't decided.
The embellishments across the bottom of this piece include several paper flowers, and fall die cuts.
I'll be sharing this post with several of the blog parties listed on my sidebar ... so make sure you click through to see the other posts! Happy Autumn in August!
