November week 3 kit 'Mother Earth' - Niki's Page

Thursday 17 November 2011

Hi Everyone

I am absolutely in love with these papers by Fancy Pants! They are in the 'Summers End' range and as you might have guessed from the name they have an autumnal feel about them.

My photo that I wanted to use for this kit was taken on a summers day rather than an autumn one so I selected the brightest sides from the papers to steer away from an autumn theme.  This is the page I came up with:

I used the reverse of the journalling cards sheet to get the big spotty panel in the middle but made sure I cut the sheet carefully to preserve some of the cards on the back.  One of those had that lovely leaf on it which I cut out and made into an embellishment.  One of the other journalling cards is the doily patterned panel just poking out from the right side of the photo.

Here's the leaf embellishment up close...I added faux stitching on the leaf itself and around it using a brown pen. I then got a bit carried away and added more stitching to the date strip, and a shape under the photo and also around the title lettering!

That fabulous edger punch is by Martha Stewart and is called 'Garden Rail' and we have it in stock here.

There was no alphabet with this kit so I added a short title using an alphabet from my stash but this is the only thing I have added to this kit.

 You can buy this kit for £7.00 here but see the same webpage for details of our monthly subscription if you want to save yourself some money!

Thanks for stopping by
