Thankful

Today I’m sharing my latest project for The Crafty Scrapper – a mini book featuring the new Authentique Harvest collection as well as papers from the Photoplay Autumn Day collection.I started with some mini manila folders from 7 Gypsies, which I painted and inked until they were the perfect coppery-bronze color.

I layered patterned papers to create backgrounds that highlight the gorgeous vintage images from the Authentique collection.

I stitched a ribbon ruffle and added it to the bottom with a silk leaf. I added the shiny copper sentiments and then tied the tag onto the candle with a ribbon.

The leaves are really falling today, but I guess it’s better than watching snow. Here’s a look at what my crepe myrtles are doing right now:
