It's Fall 'Round Here!

Fall in New England is by far my favorite season!  I've grown up here and the cool crisp air evokes many childhood memories, especially jumping in piles of leaves with my friends.

So for our challenge this week at Our Creative Corner, our fabulous hostess, Meihsia Liu of Simply Paper Crafts, asked us to create a circular, Fall themed card/project using the colors and objects of the season.  I couldn't wait to get started!

Here is my design team card.  I turned to Tim Holtz for my inspiration!
I immediately turned to one of Tim Holtz' videos and tutorial, HERE for my alcohol and glassine leaves.  My photo doesn't quite show the depth of color I achieved on the leaves, but they look so real in real life.
Please drop by Our Creative Corner and join in on our challenge.  I promise you'll have fun with this fabulous technique!  Also, check out the awesome projects from the FAB design team - they are amazing!
