I'm very lucky to live in an area where we pretty much experience all four seasons, but, Fall is probably my favorite. I love dragging out all my warm fuzzy sweaters! I start stocking up on all things pumpkin--Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream, canned pumpkin filling (I make a mean pumpkin dessert dip), and we start to plot how many pumpkins we're gonna carve, our annual trip to the patch, what kinda costumes the kidlings are gonna don for Trick or Treating, and my hubby's birthday is on Halloween to boot. . . yes, Fall is a festive time around here!
In keeping with that, I wanted to share some of the Muses splendiferous fall cards, and an irresistible Halloween Treat box!
Aren't these rich fall tones perfect for the season? I loved the way Elena centered each of the flowers with yellow polka dotted paper punch outs, sponging the edges for a little contrast. And, by trimming out and 3D mounting one of the flowers, she created a wonderful dimensional effect on the design!
U-PICK PUMPKIN PATCH
The Pumpkin Patch Sign is one of my all-time favorites--this entire design reminds me of the patch we visit every year out at Dugualla Bay! Notice how Emily set the barn off to the upper left, but the sign towards the lower right? This is such an effective way to create depth perception when working with images that otherwise might not match in size. And, while Tiny Pumpkin is very tiny, next to the sign, it gives the illusion that they are BIG pumpkins, due to the scale of the image they were stamped next to!
TRICK OR TREAT BOX
OK. You cannot tell me this isn't one of the most darling Halloween Treat boxes EVER!!! I literally squealed when I saw this fab thing! She added the additional Kitchen Black Paper as a "cuff" around the top of the box, with a scalloped edge!
One of the interesting things to note about this clever project, is how Heather left a white border around the 3 D mounted images--this is a fantastic touch because it gives the them a much more defined presence, and really makes 'em pop in contrast to the patterned papers they are layered onto!
Heather also shared the pattern, so you can download it and make some for your little Tricksters and Treaters!
How does your family celebrate the Fall Season? I'd love to know, if you care to share!
Happy Monday, too!
