Happy Monday! I hope everyone had an absolutely amazing weekend! It was so gorgeous here! Matthew and I had anniversary pictures taken by one of our awesome friends, went out shopping a little bit, and found the newly opened Target!!! I'm so above and beyond excited that we finally have Target here in Montreal! It's like the most perfect place to shop ever! Lol :)
Anyhow, since it's Monday, that means it's time for a new challenge at Paper Makeup!! This week's theme is Playing with Leaves!! Perfect for this time of year with the leaves turning all those gorgeously bright colors and falling off to crunch under our feet. I just love fall!
I used a couple of the leaves from the Color it Autumn set from Paper Makeup and printed off the large one big enough to fill my scallop circle. Then I used a cotton ball and "sponged" ink onto the leaf to fill it with the appropriate fall colors. I've never done that before, but love how it turned out!!
Once the leaf was done, I decided on a few colors for my roses, found my scraps and cut them all out. Assembling them took forever, like always but I just love these roses so much that the assembly time is worth it :) I did the same sort of "sponging" on the little leaves and tucked them under the roses. Then made a double layer bow with my ribbon and tucked it into the arrangement.
The stamp sentiment is from the Wonderful Wishes set from Verve. I thought it fit pretty well. The fall season is comforting to me. I haven't quite figured out why yet, but it just seems to calm my soul a bit more than the other seasons.
