No, you’re not imagining it I really am posting twice today. I was lucky enough to win a guest designer spot over at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog and so am sharing project for their current challenge, #17, which has the theme “Happy Fall Y’All.”
I love making wreaths, even though I do get in a right old mess and making this was no exception!
I’ve used some paper by Bo Bunny, that has been in my stash for a couple of years, for the background and layered it on to a mat of terracotta cardstock, distressing and inking the edges of both. Next, I punched out lots of branches and sprigs from scraps of card in autumnal colours. To create the wreath I drew a circle onto the base layer and then simply, if somewhat messily, arranged the punched branches. To create depth I did several layers, tucking in extra pieces until it felt right and then adding berries and tiny acorn buttons.
I made a little arrangement in one corner using a rusty mini pumpkin together with more branches and berries, a die-cut heart and a paper sunflower.
On the other side is a mini tag.
Thanks for buzzing by.
