Imagination Crafts - Home Decor

 Good Morning Crafty Friends,

The middle of October already and we are well into Autumn which is my favourite time of the year with all the trees changing colour and finally falling from the trees. Love to walk through the leaves on a cold crisp morning!

The theme for the new Home Decor show for Imagination Crafts is Autumn and I have made 4 projects using the beautiful stencils, rice papers and paints.


The first is a box frame giving this majestic cockerel! 


An A4 frame using the rice paper and the pumpkins from one of the stencils


A cushion cover and the sunflowers are from the rice papers.


Tote bag using the paints, stencils and rice papers.

I will definitely be using everything to make some autumnal cards for my blog during the rest of this month and even into next month too.

Many thanks for your continued support and comments.
Happy Crafting!
