Gratitude by SUE CREASE

I'm sharing today a layout I have made to join in with the Facebook group for 49 and Market  October challenge and also The Mad Scrapper Blog
I have used supplies purchased at The Mad Scrapper  This online store has an amazing variety of papers, flowers, stamps etc by 49 and Market click the link and have a good time.
Here is the challenge sketch we had to follow. We could flip it to make it work for us but I chose to keep close to the original this time.
Today I have decided to make an Autumn theme page using this wonderful photograph which was shared on a group I belong to by my friend. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to use it.
Papers used today are as follows Pomegranate by Bazzill and Vintage Artistry In The Leaves - Autumnal. I used a stencil and inked through with distress-ink-pads Vintage PhotoWalnut Stain and  Fired Brick . Then I stitched using red metallic thread around the bottom right and just normal red up at the top left. I used a note pad style punch to the left side and then attached it to the Bazzill card.            
The photos were matted on to green and black cardstock and the main photo has cream stitching to the side. I added Jute ribbon and then I made a couple of tags using the Vintage Artistry Natural Collage Stack  placing them on the right of the photos. I also added leaves and stamens from my stash .  
 Over here on the left of the photo I have used the beautiful new Vintage Artistry In The Leaves – Foliage  these are amazing! I've lifted some and others not. I have also added more leaves cut from other papers in the collection and then flowers from 49andmarket which here are  Royal Posies – TomatoEnchanted Petals - Parchment and Mini  Ginger  paper flowers.
You will also see I have added other things to the layout. A mushroom, green gems, Finnabair Melange Art Pebbles - Clear which I coloured with reds and orange inks into HEAVY GESSO WHITE . I have also added 2 new to me products bramblefox perspectives. I just love that disc at the bottom right. I also tried a bit of splattering in gold and white and to finish black Nuvo Drops.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you like this and will join in with the challenge as well as a bit of shopping instore.
Take Care
