around here. Leaves dropping from the trees. No rain. Brown grass. An Amish columnist in our local paper said it was like walking through a bowl of Rice Krispies cereal...all she could hear was 'snap, crackle, pop'! Since it looks more like fall than summer I thought I'd use the Gilded Kraft Glassine technique that's in Tim's 2nd book on page 39 on my leaves. This will meet the criteria for the 14th challenge over on the Studio L3 blog. This week's sponsor is The Funkie Junkie Boutique and they're offering a $25 gift certificate from their store to a randomly chosen winner. My fingers are crossed that I win because I already have my shopping list made!
Sizzix Branch Tree was cut from corrugated cardboard and smeared with brown and black distress inks. The leaves were using the Sizzix Mini Tattered Leaves. I took another black tag, cut '31' using the Sizzix Carnevale strip die and gave it the same white wash treatment. Heat to dry then apply Sepia Accents. Multi-Medium was used to adhere it to the felt removed from my alcohol blending tool. A grosgrain ribbon was smeared with more brown distress ink, frayed the edges, knotted it in the center and glued it to the top of the tag.
Sure hope we get some rain soon...I'm NOT ready to rake leaves or hickory nuts during the heat of the summer!
