October Challenge LO No.3







I enjoyed this theme so much that I have made another one. Used a pale yellow paper from WRMK precious metals range, and inked the edges with adirondack *lettuce" and *aged mahogony* distress ink from Ranger. Used a photo of autumn leaves, and die-cuts (Sizzix decorative strip) cut from black coredinations paper, and a swallow cut from the same paper. Wanted to convey the feeling of the dying flowers and the birds flying away. Used an excerpt from *Autumn* by Thomas Hardy. I have hidden 3 little witches in the black leaves and flowers, can you find them? Was fun to make.
