 Hello everyone,

I got so carried away with Christmas stuff and Moons!!, that I neglected Autumn in another part of the world, the season I love. so set too yesterday [Thursday] and had a play..

My friend Janette sent me these lovely leaves and lots of them, 
so, time to get out my sprays and give them a good dose of Autumn..

So pretty...the paper held up really well..

LOOK!..are they not pretty..

and look here, the paper towel that I sprayed on [ watch this space tomorrow]

Brown splatters.

All dry and not too curly at all..

Now for the tags..five of them.. Ranger tags.
First smoosh..

Second smoosh..

Last smoosh and splatter..

Then! I embossed them in this beautiful swilry folder..


So there they are, all smooshed and splattered and embossed.. time for leaves.

One leaf per tag...

This floss from my stash was the perfect colour to tie on top and add the sentiment to..

All trimmed and tidy..

Then stamped and gold embossed a simple sentiment, 
and die cut them with a small tag die..


Thank you so much for stopping by,
 I'll have more sort of the same tomorrow..

Your leaves are just beautiful, like how the sprays just blended so well, I like the addition of the brown splatters, makes them even more realistic. Made for some pretty tags!
