Flavors of Fall

Time for another challenge at 613 Avenue Create.  The theme is as always anything goes but the twist this month is the Flavors  of Fall. 

These are the ATC that I made for the challenge.


Please indicate which palette you used!
Neutrals (white, black, and grey) may be used! 
If you create a CAS project,  please make sure that your main image or grouping strongly embraces the colors of your chosen palette!

Palette #1

Palette #2



For my project I created 5 ATC using digi leaves, palette #1 and several different mediums. 

The digital leaves are a purchase from Esty  from an artist called Verna Lane Studios.  There were 12 digital funky leaf stamps in the bundle.  

To make my ATC I went through my scraps of papers.  The background papers are from cardboard boxes, a pineapple paper bag,  packaging from die cuts, packaging for stain glass, and a flower seed book. 

The leaves were coloured with a variety of artist pens - I also added some Nuvo, sentiments, and inks to create interest. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a create week.
