Autumnal hues

Autumn seems to have arrived in my corner of the world very quickly. I’m a real summer gal so the trees changing colour and the cooling weather always comes as quite a shock!

I wanted to make something to celebrate a colleague’s 39 years at my place of work (quite an incredible achievement!) and when I saw the new theme at Country View Crafts Challenges was Mixed media with autumnal hues I knew I could combine the two!

I used a variety of yellows, oranges and browns to colour these Dylusions flowers and arranged them on the tag with a die cut banner.

What a beautiful piece, the flowers colours are so pretty and I love all the detail on the leaves and along the edges of the petals that you added 😁. I'm sure your colleague will love it too! Wishing you a Happy October! J 😊
