Hello everyone. Christin here today to share with you a project inspired by something I found on Pinterest. I am one of those who spend hours and hours browsing Pinterest – I don’t pin everything, but I love to take in all that you can find there.  It’s in the little things that I find the inspiration and not always the whole image, but sometimes just a feeling.

For this project I was inspired by this little fall project. What spoke to me was the colors and the title and I thought it was a perfect starting point for the new collection Golden Days

I was also inspired by the white frame and wanted to frame my photo in a similar way.  I used one of the lighter patterns in the collection underneath a darker one that I used as a photomat.

The colors of the chair were the base for my background and I used the same colors over and above my layers of paper.

I was also inspired by the leaves in the corner and decided to just use more leaves and I stitched a little to make the leaves a little more interesting.  I don’t have a digital cutter so I printed a few leaves on a piece of cardstock, cut them, and traced and cut them out before stitching.

I hope to see lots of lovely fall inspired layouts on the FB page. I really love fall, like my title says. I just love the colors and the light.
