... I knew I wanted this layout to be 'autumny', but I didn't have any autumn themed/coloured papers so I thought I get the tim holtz distress inks out & make my own background paper - It's simple really, I just dragged the inks over the paper, blended them a little & added splatters of ink! but I actually really like the way it came out & the colours work perfectly with the leaves which I made a while ago using the stampin up stamps & dies..
..The large gold sentiment is from Heidi Swapp, I picked it up while I was over in florida back in November. I bought some of these words as gifts for the ladies who come along to my scrapbook crop & I've kind of challenged them to use them so I can't wait to see what they do :)
..I actually really like boldness of the word & I wish I'd bought more!
I hope this inspires you a little!
Have a great weekend & I'll be back Monday.
