Autumn Inspiration

We've all had such fun with Glimmer Mist this last two weeks, we hope you've enjoyed our various projects and have inspired you to get misting! Remember, you still have a couple more days to enter our "Spritz the Glitz" challenge and we'd love to see what you came up with so link your project before 11:59 EST on October 31 for a chance to win some goodies from The Beary Scrap.

That brings me to one last Glimmer Mist project that is also based on this gorgeous autumn photo:

I love fall colors and leaves so this was easy to get inspired by. I decided to see what I could do with some real leaves from my yard and went out and raided a few of my trees to get this (reminds me a lot of our inspiration photo):

I used the real leaves as screens and misted over them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Sunflower and Tiger Lily.

After removing the leaves from my paper, I was left with just the outlines like this:

I used the misted paper with the leaf outlines to make Table Place Tags for all The Beary Scrap Gals that could be used for Thanksgiving (another of my favorite holidays, and it's coming right up!) If only we lived close enough together to share that lovely day together.

The tags are mounted on Bo Bunny Double Dot cardstock in Chocolate and Burnt Orange and stitched around the edges.

With some awesome brown lace as a background, I added Prima fall leaves and some tiny brown flowers that were also spritzed with the Sunflower and Tiger Lily Glimmer Mist.

The photo has that awesome acorn and I so I had to add an acorn to my project. I stamped the acorn image, popped up the top of it to give a little dimension, added Cinnamon Stickles and then popped the whole acorn up for even more dimension.

Then I added some jute around the bottom and some rhinestones for a little more glitz.

This were quick and easy to make and would be fun on any Thanksgiving table.

So there you have it, the last of our Glimmer Mist projects! Now we'd love to see yours. We'd also love to hear from you-- if you have a question about Glimmer Mist or anything else for The Beary Scrap Designers, click on the Ask the Designers tab at the top of the blog and leave us a comment or send a question on some sort of paper crafting dilemma you might have. How do we get inspiration? How do we find the time? (Trust me, I'd like to know the answer to that one!) What is our favorite and "go-to" techniques? Whatever you wonder, we'd like to answer in our Ask the Designers post each Sunday. We look forward to seeing your questions!
