... Autumnal Feelings...

As all the leaves are falling from most of the trees around us and during the early morning there has been a bite in the air I have taken my colour choices from the season Autumn. It's well on its way! And for many of us our kiddos have returned back to school... with a little 'yippee!' from us crafty peeps out there :)

I used the scribble sentiments set, which if you haven't laid your hands on yet... you need to! It is one of the most versatile, with lovely words in the most delish font. I *heart* this one so much.

After layering all my paper on my layout up, I freehand (yes!) cut some wobbly and shaky circles. The whole layout just needed alittle bit of plain to balance up all the patterns. I then inked around the edges (I love the momento brown ink we have in, it's one of the best dark, deep browns that i've found) and still using this ink I stamped the 'love' and 'you' from the scribble sentiments. I stamped around the random sized, freehand circles... Thats the joy of clear stamps. You can see that you are stamping in exactly the right place. Thats if you keep them clean ;) And I strongly recommend that too!

By stamping your own little phrases, its abit like adding your own customed patterned paper... you really can make your layouts unique and get them to say exactly what you want them too!!
