Cacophony of Color

I did this layout because I had this beautiful picture of the trees turning here in Muskoka! I have to admit that living here one gets to enjoy the seasons to their fullest!
I used a small maple leaf stamp from the Artful Stamper and stamped a whole bunch of leaves and then coloured them in using my new Tim Holtz distress markers.

I used the used frame from a DA piece Brick wall and added a few bricks to add some flair. Definitely have to scrap more of the fall pics I took it's just gorgeous up here unfortunately the consequence means that the snow is not far behind :( not a winter person! Guess I'll have to stay in and scrap all winter!

Once Upon a Sketch Challenge-October-Good Time

 This is the Octobr sketch over at OUAS.
This was the quote that was to be used in relation to the sketch.
This is my take on the sketch. This is a photo of my daughter Stephanie and my youngest grandchild Isla. They played a hysterical game of Peek-a-boo during the summer while on holidays at home. I felt this picture truly portrayed taking the time to enjoy the small moments in life! I love that I captured this shot!
Some close-ups of the layout. I used the Olde Curiosity Shoppe papers from Graphic 45.
I used the skeleton clock from DA and painted it green let it dry and the went over it with a copper glaze. The feathers I sprayed lightly with tattered angels glimmer mist in vintage pink. I then splattered white paint over the area.
I used the peacock feather also from DA. I painted it Aqua let it dry then went over it with black stickles from Ranger industries. I painted the top part of the feather with metallic copper and again let it dry then used honey stickles from Ranger industries on it. I used some lime stickles to outline the head of the feather some more. I got this technique from Gabrielle Pollaco in a layout she did some time ago. If you are a scrapbooker then you must know Gabrielle! She has some terrific tutorials on her blog and it's well worth the time to check them out!
