Autumn's here

Now we are in October I'm sure autumn has officially started.

I spent yesterday in Derby with Hannah and Harry, we had a lovely time together, and Han was pleased when I took her shopping. She seems to have learned the value of money now she has none :(

Talking of Hannah, here is a page I made at a crop last week about her 18th birthday. The page was designed by Claire, and is made using the Cosmo Cricket Material Girl range of papers. There is so much detail on the layout, and although the roses were time consuming I love the final effect on the page. Just not sure how to fit it into an album!!

The background was stamped with green acrylic paint using a docrafts foam swirl stamp, and overpainted with a brush in white. A circle frame was added using a bowl as a stamp and some more white acrylic. this was then stitched in blue.

The title uses the Tim Holtz mask alphabet again, with Glossy Accents on top.

To make the flowers, cut a circle of cardstock, ink and cut a spiral shape into it, leaving a circle in the centre. Roll the spiral from the outside in, and glue with a strong wet glue when you get to the middle. Weighing them down during gluing helps to hold the flower in shape as the glue sets.

I was hoping to get some crafting done today, but have a lesson observation on Tuesday, so need to make sure everything is in place for that. Maybe later.......
