I love Fall. Love it. Especially when the air turns crisp, the grass starts to frost in the morning, and you can smell the fireplaces when you walk outside. I especially love all of the falling leaves, and wanted to include those in this week's project.
In keeping with the Authentique Blog's Pinspired Monday, I chose to create a Fall decor piece based on things I found on Pinterest. Here is my version:
I used this pin as my inspiration. I loved the leaves, the Fall lettering and the natural fibers that were used.
Rather than create an extra large rosette, I grabbed my Silhouette and started cutting away. I layered scalloped circles with the fantastic Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I just love how the dimensional adhesive makes each of the layers pop!
I used strips of 3L's Crafty Foam Tape in black, 3D Foam Squares Variety Pack in black, and Dodz 3D for the scalloped circles. The Dodz were great for sticking the twine into, as they also stuck to the upper layer.
I layered the Fall saying, and used the 3D Foam Squares Variety Pack in black to give it more dimension.
I also placed a cute crocheted flower that my friend Cathryn made for me. The colors worked perfectly with the Thankful papers.
I really loved the little acorns on the Harvest paper, and decided to also make more three-dimensional acorns to add to the multitude of leaves.
I created the acorns with another Silhouette cut. After cutting the seed section of the acorn, I cut two caps per acorn. This way, I could glue one directly to the seed, then add the 3D Foam Squares to the second cap. Once that was applied to the seed, it adds to the dimension of the project. The black Foam Squares are great, as they don't contrast against darker toned paper.
For this project, I glued two acorns back to back with the twine in the center. I love how they pop against the various leaves.
To finalize this, I just added some May Arts crinkle ribbon, and my Fall decor is complete! I hope that this inspires you to create your own Fall decor using Thankful.

  4. This Fall wall hanging is fabulous. I think what I like most about it all the dimension of the 3D effect that went into making it. All that layering does make it sturdier. I am going to try making something like this for my front door.
