April scraplift

Faith chose the April scrap page for our crop’s scraplift, with kind permission from Glitterola over at UKscrappers.


I kept the general placement of the photo, the distressed edges to both background layers, my swirls are beads on wire, under the photo are 3 skeleton leaves with gold leaf behind them, the maple leaf is a real maple leaf encased in some kind of resin (fridge magnet).
I started by spraying the More mustard layer with the sprays and sponged on some mustard seed then splattered with more colour. I distressed the edges and added the brown colours to the back and curled the over. The photo is actually a photocopy of a picture I had cut out from a magazine of branches hanging over a pond. I coloured the leaf beads (which were pale green) using copic pens and placed some behind the photo and some along the front aligned with the branches on the photo. Stuck everything on then stamped the word Fall over the leaves and layered this page onto the black card which I had distressed the edges already.
