Autumn extravaganza

Hello Everyone-hope you have had a good week. It was great to see all the tags last week and thank you for the comments on mine.

Autumn is  a lovely time of year I think though at the moment in NE UK it feels more like winter with the cold, wet and wind.

For my tag I printed out some Autumn leaves shapes onto a piece of of material I saved from the bits cut off the bottom of vertical blinds They work well for printing on or stamping.

The pictures of the leaf arrangement were some outdoor art I did a couple of weeks ago you can see where, how and why here if you would like to know. I then added some hazel nut cases I found near to where we live they are very pretty I think.

I am looking forward to see what people make this week

Love Chrissie x


  1. This is stunning. I love the combination of all the differing elements. Love the outside art idea - very Andy Goldsworthy! Will pop over to your blog to see more of what you did.
