Berry71bleu: October Challenge

I am playing along at the theme for this month's challenge is Autumn and to use this mood board as inspiration.

my layout was inspired by the brown and rust colours of fall.

 I tried to capture the moment fall begins when the air has a slight chill but still mild and when the foliage starts to turn from green to orange.
 I achieved the tattered paper effect by wetting the edges of the paper until it was almost mushy. I then scrunched up the paper and set it using a heating tool.
 to get a more layered look to your page you could try tucking things between the layers.
 I used Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves die cutter  the Sizzixs Bigz version. I used burn sienna ink with Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo distress inks to add colour to the leaves then I  wet the edges and rolled them up to add dimension.

the products I used on this project are:
Dear Lizzy lucky charm
Create Paper Pink Plum
Papermania Capsule Collection Bexley Black
Papermania Persimmon  A5 paper pad
large sunflower stamp
Anna Griffin vintage photo corners
Tim Holtz Bigz Tattered Leaves
Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo inks
EK Success stickers
Tim Holtz mini rosette die
