Neat & Tangled September Release Week & Giveaways - Day 1


Hey everyone!  Can you believe it's already September?  I cannot!  My kids head back to school tomorrow which this year involves Middle School!  Where does the time go?

Anyway, this month's release is all about Fall.  Today's featured set, Hello Fall, is the final in Danielle's seasonal sentiment series.  Fall just happens to be my favorite season, so I'm really excited to get my hands on this one.

I paired the sentiment with an accent stamp from the Into The Woods stamp set - some leaves that are blowing in the air.  


I used watercolor paper for my panel, and added some simple and subtle watercoloring working in layers and just kind of dabbing color around the leaves to create the idea of motion, or piles of leaves.  A patterned paper mat finished this off.

Really simple, but I love the look of this one, and I am definitely ready for fall and cooler temperatures!

OK, head over to the Neat & Tangled blog.  As always, Danielle is giving away today's featured products to a lucky commenter.  Leave a comment here also.  I'm releasing a couple new items and I'll be picking a couple winners at the end of the week to receive them.

See you back here tomorrow for Day 2!

  1. I have never been a fan of autumn and am happy to say we moved to an area where they have only 2 real seasons: a long summer and a short winter with generally mild temperatures and of course some indispensible rain. Love your watercolouring and the sense of movement you have achieved.
