Hello there, CK friends, Mou Saha here. November is here and we are thinking thankful thoughts. Walking down your child’s school hallways, you can see class display boards with essays, lists and artwork about what the kids are thankful for. Why not create your own layout about what you’re thankful for! Whether you are lucky enough to live in a place where you can see the grandeur of Autumn in nature, or not, you can take inspiration from the changing colors and textures of fall leaves.
She Said by Mou Saha, as seen in the November/December 2011 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.
In my layout, “She Said”, I created a leaf border by cutting leaf shapes out of various materials such as, burlap, crepe paper, fabric, felt, and trim. You can use die cuts or punches as well. I placed the leaves on top of a big green rickrack, stitched stems and veins on them to bring a touch of realism as well as to hold them in place.
If you are looking for more seasonal inspiration, don’t forget to check out Joannie McBride’s article, “Holiday Spirit” in the November/December 2011 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.
