The lovely Darcy asked if I could do a guest post with the theme of autumn. Here’s what I came up 1
I used this gorgeous set.. Hot Picks 1103hotpick1103

I wanted to use the Kraft Crunchy wax paper to decorate this embroidery hoop I’d had lying around for a while. I started by heat embossing onto the kraft 1

It also works amazingly with embossing folders- and by rubbing Versamark onto it after embossing you also get an inky texture to add embossing powder to and then heat to set

I wanted to add leaves to the wreath & used the leaf stamp. Once stamped with Versamark, I sprinkled on clear embossing powder and because the image is quite densely patterned, I scratched off some of the powder so when heated, there’d be more gaps for the paint to show through.

I then added watered down Fresco paint and washed over each image and then cut the leaves out

I wanted to create some rolled roses with leftover embossed kraft paper and so cut out circles, cut a spiral into them & then coiled up and glued at the centre. I added in little pink beads and started to arrange my autumnal leaves onto the hoop.

Treasure Gold comes in tons of colours here.

I even had enough left to create this simple fall card- and the fun bit was adding this gorgeous product onto the embossed parts

    Great project Keren, enjoyed you using a sewing related item but no sewing, made me smile.

    Some fab tips and lovely colours on your flowers and wood background. Might have a play…

    Have a great weekend:-) xxx
