Autumn Delights

I am seeing so many challenge themes for Autumn as of late but it sure doen’t feel like it outside. My favorite things of fall are the family activities and the food but especially the baking. I love the smell of pumpkin, apple, cloves, and cinnamon wafting throughout the house. My favorite fall baking includes apple pie, apple dumplings, pumpkin cranberry bread, cinnamon bread etc…

What are your favorite fall recipes or delights?

Creating The Journal Page

I have a few pages yet to complete in my Steampunk Art Journal. While looking through my stamps I decided to revisit these amazing sets by Seth Apter for PaperArsty. I have used them several times already but these images are so cool I couldn’t help myself.

The Background

The background is designer paper cut to fit over a grocery bag. I used Grunge paste through a Stencil Girl Stencil. The background color is Infusions by PaperArtsy. I stamped over top with a Tim Holtz stamp and then I started adding embellishments.

The Embellishments

Mostly, I used the stamps to embellish but the rest of the items came from my table. One of these days I will take a picture of my messy table to show you. I used a lot of die cuts on this layout because I recently went on a cutting spree with some of my scraps. And of course, I had to add a few gears to make it more ‘steampunk.’ The gear stamps are from Prima.

Thank you for Stopping!
