A new season

On 12 Months in View today we start a new Season - Autumn.  If you haven't joined in with this challenge blog, today is a very good day to start.

The challenge today was to produce something that was Autumn themed.  I turned to the next page in my journal and found there was a bleed through of colours from the previous page but I ignored them!

 I found some acetate packaging that I had saved for making stencils.

I used my Cuttlebug and the Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves die to cut the stencil.  I put a piece of folded scrapbooking paper in the 'sandwich' so that I cut paper leaves as well as the acetate.

 I stamped with Black Archival Ink at the bottom of the page to form a hedgerow.

I sprayed the page and blotted it off by pressing it onto the next page.  Then I sprayed more ink through the stencil I had made.

I stuck down a few of paper leaves I had cut out  and the quote.

I used letters from my stash to give it a title.  I used the stencil to draw some extra leaves with a white pen, stopping when I got to part of a stuck on leaf to make it look like the white leaf was behind it. I highlighted the seedheads with white.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Wonderful autumn feel to the page Bernice.

  2. I love the white high lights.

  3. Gorgeous page, wish I have his steel rule die of the leaves now, I just have the strip die. Like how you drew round some with white pen too. BJ
