Inspired By Autumn

Welcome back to day Two (out of Seven!) of My Favorite Things Teasers for our upcoming October Release! Today there are two stamp sets being shared, and I'm working with Inspired By Autumn.

I certainly love summer, but living in New England, I always look forward to the nights getting a little cooler, those crisp first Autumn Days when I can put on a sweater and jeans.  I find I'm loving hanging out on my deck reading just a little bit more now that there's just a hint of coolness in the air.

So, for me, this wooden crate of apples just spoke to me.  In fact, I'm looking forward to a little pumpkin and apple picking this weekend.  Can you say Photo Op?  Honestly some of my favorite photos of the boys are from the fall, the leaves, the bright green grass, red apples. warm orange pumpkins.  {{{love}}}

I've stamped my main image to a lightly printed piece of text paper, and colored with Copic Markers.  My little tip for you today is that when coloring on a pattered piece of paper versus paper that is *meant* for markering, you've got to just go slow, take it easy and not saturate the paper.  Or else, you're going to be prone to a lot of color bleeding, a real mess. So, I blended this image very lightly... and didn't go nutso with the coloring....

My pattern paper is My Mind's Eye Six By Six: Vanity Fair and I've used the Solid Bracket Border Die-namics for that chocolate polka dotted piece....

Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog today for a full list of designers participating in previews today with Inspired by Autumn and/or Fred Bear and the Megaphone.  I'll see you tomorrow with another preview!
