Autumn Love ...... Simple Stories Vintage Autumn Splendour

 Anita here with you today and I have been using some slightly older papers this time for my pages.

My favourite time of year is the Autumn! I adore the colours, the richness of it all......the hazy golden light of Autumnal sunshine, the earthy scent in the air and the crisp, fresh feeling of cooler mornings and evenings!

This beautiful collection is Vintage Autumn Splendour from Simple Stories and it captures it all.... and is just so lovely to craft with.

So I have combined a single sheet of white cardstock, a few sheets from the Vintage Autumn Collection pack and added bubble wrap and acrylic paint to the mix.

I decorate my sideboard each year as the seasons change and I always look forward to the gorgeous tones that come with Autumn.....I also enjoy using the Snapchat App and when this pumpkin filter appeared obviously I had to grab a pic using it!

I used the bubble wrap to create the pattern in the background on the white card.....bubble wrap is lovely to use to add paint, ink, texture paste etc for a varied effect each time you use it, plus its cheap and fairly easy to purchase. I used 3 colours of paint and gently dabbed it onto the bubble wrap using a chunk of sponge to apply it with.

I basically just cut sections out from  4 x 4 Elements 

and the  2 x 2 Elements sheets, gently inked the edges and then layered them up, placing foam pads behind some. I scattered them down the left side of the page and along the bottom. I also used some to layer up to decorate the top right of the page and next to the photo just to finish the page off


I will be back in a few days with my 2nd layout using this gorgeous collection.

If you love Autumn too,, why not have a look around the SHOP, there is a great selection of Autumnal papers to be found HERE


Happy Crafting!
