Once Upon A...Sketch (OUAS). This month's theme is: Season (Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring).
For me this was a no-brainer. I've been an Autumn fan my whole life. I love the colors that come with Autumn, the changing of the leaves, the crisp mornings, the immaculate blue skies. It's Mother Nature at her best. I know many people love Summer--but for me Summer here in the North East is just too humid for comfort. I don't mind hot--but when you add humidity into the mix--that's when you lose me! In addition, I was married in the Autumn and this is what this page represents.
This is me & my hubby almost five years ago celebrating our first year wedding anniversary. We went away to a Bed & Breakfast when the foliage was at it's most colorful. I incorporated as much of the colors that I witnessed on this getaway as I could on this page. It was a mixture of burgundy, browns, golds, yellows, oranges and just a hint of green. The turquoise splashes here & there represent the blue skies--which in October the sky is usually as blue as it can get!
The chipboard title & fence are by Imaginarium Designs. For the fence I kept it simple. I simply inked it with embossing ink & then heat embossed it with Kaleidoscope embossing powder by Stampendous. In person, this gives off such a shimmery effect. I tried to capture it as best as I could here.
shop. They were the perfect finishing touch to this page.
In the background I also randomly stamped the 'Bubble Wrap' stamp by Donna Salazar with Aged Mahogany Distress Embossing powder. Once embossed, I scratched off a bit of the powder with my finger in order to give it a more shimmery effect.
Thanks to all of you who stop by for a visit--do take the time to visit the OUAS blog and check out the other talented DT's take on this challenge and to play along!
Enjoy the rest of the week!
