Fun Fall leaves with Foundations Decor

Hello again!
How about all this crazy weather? I am sending out prayers to all those affected and yet to be affected by these horrible storms. I hope this post finds everyone safe and sound.

This week, I decorated this sweet little set of Fall leaves and an acorn, from Foundations Decor. Here is how:
Ephemera or collage components
Craft knife
Paint brush (disposable foam brush)

My supplies at the ready! I have all sorts. Fall theme papers, quotes and ephemera.
First, I glued the papers I chose, to the wood pieces. I did my layout first with the bare pieces to see how I wanted everything to sit. Since I wanted the words to be readable, this piece was glued at an angle so that when it was set into place, the lines of text are visible. I fussy cut around the edges of the piece with a craft knife. I laid the paper on the table, glued wood piece to it, waited for it to dry a bit, then cut.

Here are the remaining pieces, done the same way.

I painted generic veining on one of the leaves with green acrylic.

I glued the top of the acorn on to the acorn piece. Painted all the edges with coordinating acrylic paints, then I glued all pieces together in the order I liked at the beginning.

Added a cute "FALL" paper banner and all done!
Very simple, very quick! Love Foundations Décor pieces, they are so much fun to individualize!
See you next time!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
