The Colours of Autumn

More limited supplies for my contribution to the Colours of Autumn challenge at A Vintage Journey. I have so many mop up tags and scraps I really do need to use up or get rid of!!!!!

This is a tag background that I found with colours and a design that seemed perfect for Jennie's fabulous challenge.


So out came some papers, flowers and a vintage photo from one of Tim's ephemera packs and I was away.



I often find that reducing the supplies in front of me helps me focus and create something in less time than normal which is just what I need to be doing at the moment.

Hope we see you over on the challenge blog and joining us, but even if you just pop over to see the wonderful contributions from the AVJ team we would love to see you.

Take care.

Your base tag is beautiful in those autumnal tones Brenda and your collaged elements are perfect, especially that large flower. Hugs, Anne xx

There's a gentle nostalgic melancholy about this which sums up autumn perfectly for me. It's got a touch of Little House on the Prairie about it too... maybe that's to do with all your travels across the great plains!

Hi Brenda! This feels so much like an authentic cherished vintage find from a flea market jaunt. The layers and colors (love that background!). It's amazing. I am so inspired to play right now. I have a day off today and I'm heading to my craft room. Thanks for making me smile and ready to revel in a crafting day. Hugs -- Mary Elizabeth
