- Make a "Fall themed" project
- Or Make a Project that uses "Brads...lots and lots of Brads".
- Or "Mash it Up" and create a fun "Fall themed project that uses lots and lots of Brads".
One thing I love about fall beside the crunchy leaves on the ground, are the Black Eyed Susans which come into perfect bloom at this time of year. I walk past a yard which has a whole bed full of them, and some other little groupings scattered around in other beds. I smile each day I pass and see this one little grouping, standing tall and unwilted while the other plants around them are beginning to fade. They're just so happy looking. So - they were my inspiration for this card - and I chose to use brads to highlight the "eyes".
The Crochet Trim has been changed up a bit. At the Regionals I was at two weeks ago, one of the home-office demonstrators showed how to colour the trim with ink. You need to wash it out a bit first to remove the chemical that is on it - otherwise the ink sort of beads on top of the fibers. I just rinsed the trim out with a bit of handsoap, dried it with my heat gun and then applied the ink from the ink pad with a sponge dauber.
Be sure to head over to The Friday Mashup! to see all the FALL-icious cards the DT have come up with. Be sure to link your own creation to that blogsite and when posting on a public gallery remember to use FM26.
The last two Saturdays have been spent at Stampin'Up! events - now tomorrow I'm attending an Orff workshop. Should be full of musical fun, fun, fun. Hope your weekend is gearing up with things to look forward to. And thanks again to Holly for the opportunity and privilege of being a guest designer for September!
