Twigs, pine cones, burlap and skeleton leaves all came from their NATURALS pages and I really like them! The burlap (which actually here in the UK, we call hessian) comes in a pack of mixed colours, A4 ish sheets. As you can see, the colours are lovely.I used some long forgotten wire to 'tie' the twigs together to make the frame. Not because it would look more rustic or because it would add to the overall 'vignette' I was creating. *ahem*.No. None of that. Because I can't find my glue gun. I wonder if it's gone to live by the sea with a certain child o'mine. Anyway, it worked out OK. The 'stand' for the frame is another twig from the bag of twigs..it has a big enough knot in it to act as a sort of easel leg. Lucked out there then! The message is just die cut from an Alpha and stuck across the frame with real old fashioned glue dots. I'm sort of pleased with this one, it's sitting on the piano and doesn't look out of place at all, which is very possibly more than can be said of a lot of my dimensional crafting!

No hiding, it's Autumn...
It IS Autumn. We've had the most wonderful week of sunshine and crisping of leaves and cool-in-the-shade warm days. It doesn't get much better, as seasonal changes go. My friends at Baker Ross sent me a box of 'Naturals' products to play with and this came out of my head first.
