autumn



 Some pictures of Caden on our recent camping trip - I've used them for a challenge over at the Artastic Inspiration Challenge blog - using the autumn painting as inspiration, you need to create a LO - some other criterea is including clouds and trees.
I got a little creative with some paper (Basic Grey), punches, cardboard and hessian - and made my own trees.  Inspired by the colours of the painting, I've created an autumn scene.
Here are some close-up's of the details:


A chipboard cloud from Stuff 2 Scrap, covered in pattern paper and lightly sanded; also some fimo clouds from the Chip-Chop Shop!
 Pattern paper is from Basic Grey - Green at Heart - this paper pad had the perfct autumn colours.  I've added in extra bits like buttons and a bottle top using the same paper.
Title using letters by American Crafts, paper roses and twine.  I've also recycled old sewing patterns and used them in the background.

This challenge runs til the end of the month - I really enjoyed putting this one together - it was great to have inspiration from a painted picture - I'm looking forward to seeing what the next challenge will be!

Hope you are all enjoying Easter and the holidays - happy crafting.
