October Colour Theme - 6X6 Ring Binder

Hi all,

I'm just loving the colour theme this month, so very rich and autumnal. Leaves just had to factor heavily of course............

I started by sticking multi-coloured skeleton leaves all over the front cover. A good layer of white gesso neutralised the coloured leaves (phew!) and 2 further coats of acrylic paint later and I was happy. I used a brayer to lightly add a contrasting layer of paint over the cover to highlight the details on the leaves and I'm so pleased with how this has turned out. A border of ribbon was added on the front cover as well as some lace on the spine. Hessian bows were added to the front to tie in with the lace.

Here is what I used.....

People don't use skeleton leaves enough and the lace just finishes it off.
