Best Life by CHARLEEN WALES

I love all 4 seasons but one of my absolute favourites is Autumn. I love the sunny blue crisp days and being surrounded by all the beautiful colour. I love the leaves blowing in the wind.
The November kit is filled with so many beautiful possibilities.
I started off my page by tearing two strips of the Brindilles pattern paper from the Add on kit. I distressed the edges using my distressing tool and curled up the bottom of both strips.
 
I got an idea of where I wanted to place the strips on my white card stock from the Main kit and marked it down with a pencil. I then used distressed oxides Aged Mahogany, Fired brick, Rusty hinge, Wild honey, Scattered straw and Shabby shutters through the Tim Holtz Autumn stencil.
All the distress oxides and the stencil are available at The Mad Scrapper. I just love how lovely these colours blended together.
I placed Green Tara Metallic gold and sand mesh that I bought from The Mad Scrapper and the Olive Green RicRac from the Add on kit under the 2nd layer of pattern paper to create more interest and dimension to the page. 
I then backed my photos with white tissue paper and lifted them off the page using sticky back foam from my stash.
I added some of the fussy cut leaves from the Tourbillon pattern paper from the Main kit and used the ephemera pieces I received in my Add on kit.
I used an acrylic piece from my stash for my title and finished off my page with some Heidi Swapp colour shine gold ink splatters (the colour shine gold is from my stash, and I use it very sparingly)
