IN AUTUMNAL COLOURS ......

We already have some entries in the October Challenge which you can view HERE, and the weather is turning increasingly Autumnal where we are, with a very cold wind blowing this evening.  After such a lovely Summer it is quite a shock to think that Winter is heading this way.  I thought that with the nip in the air and the trees now changing colour we might focus on team projects supporting the Challenge in Autumnal colours this evening.

With a fun approach towards travelling in style, Gio has had the fabulous idea of 'altering' sleep inducing paraphernalia - and the eyelashes are just fabby!



I think she will cause a bit of a stir on the plane in these, but oh so cool!  Various masks have been used here with sprays I think, and the addition of parts of CI-248, Patchwork Birds and Flowers, stamped over the pattern.  Really nice idea Gio!

Then still by Gio we have a 'gruesome' medicine cupboard for Halloween - but as it is in Autumn colours too I will picture it below -



Poison and Danger CI-360 features chillingly inside here!

Plus a textural card using masks and dimensional paste - a great technique!


Brenda is being very creatively Autumnal with a card full of meadow grasses and flowers -


And a tag too -


'Build a Meadow' used beautifully here!

Sylvie has created an Autumnal angel below using the same stamp, plus our new little angel from CI-396 -



And my final piece of this evening is this fabric delight from Helen -




Gorgeous - bedecked with a tree element from CI-287!!

Thanks all - and please keep those Challenge entries coming in folks ....

I love all projects. The travel set is stunning, great idea. Card and tag are beautiful... And the wall hanging too.
I do not like spiders (yesterday my husband dropped me a huge spider on my laptop... so when I opened to switch it on there was a 'surprise' waiting for me! he fills like Halloween already...) but I like the idea to decorate the key cupboard :)

Oh wow what amazing art and amazing ideas! Gio's originality and fun blows me away, but really all the other pieces are spectacular too!
