2012 Artisan Design Team Projects for October - Part 1


This months Artisan Design Team box had all sorts of fall goodies inside. I love the new Bigz Die "Autumn Accents" and the "Woodgrain" embossing folder! 

This project was inspired by an old wood barn. I cut 2 inch by 6 inch strips of the Early Espresso Core'dinations card stock and embossed them with the Wood grain textured embossing folder. I then sanded the top until the lighter color came through and sponged the edges with Early Espresso to give it more depth. Each piece was "nailed" down with 2 metallic brads on each end. 
The leaves are all cut out with the Bigz die Autumn Accents. Each leaf has a different texture or stamp added to it. I finished off the page with a few Brushed Bronze designer buttons, linen thread and Champagne Glass Glitter. This page was quite a bit of work :) but I really love the finished look!

My next project is a little pumpkin that I used as part of my fall decor this year. It was so easy to make! I spread the Multipurpose glue all over a little plastic pumpkin and then sprinkled the Champagne Glass Glitter on to it. Once it was dry I added the leaves, linen thread and "fall" tag.

 I love mixing rustic and something with a bit of bling!
