Autumn Leaves and Acorns

Greetings!  I want to begin by apologising to Carolyn for not posting a "clock" inspired tag last week.  I had 3 clock faces that I got from a friend that owns a thrift store, but never had the time to work on the tag or even take a look at my team members' work.

For this week's tag, I decided to focus on the leaves and acorns.  In my garden, there are a couple of beautiful live oak trees that are shedding acorns galore.  Although I don't like acorns falling into my swimming pool, I do appreciate their beauty.  Therefore, I took a few of them to use as subjects for a crayon drawing.  After I completed it, I scanned the piece and made a print to use in my tag design.  I began by trimming the top of the tag with some K&Company rub-ons.  I mounted my print under the latter.  Next, I made a label and used my calligraphic skills to write the word "Grow."  I believe this is a good word to remind whomever the recipient of this tag is, to "Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ," as stated in 2 Peter 3:18.  I finished the tag by distressing the edges and adding a simple strip of twine.

Once again, I apologise for my lack of participation last week.  I can't wait to see what everyone else created this week.  Blessings!

  1. I too was missing last week so we can sit on the naughty step together.
    Your acorns are very realistic. I can draw from a picture of an acorn but not still life so admire those that can. Mrs A.
