Colours of Kew

Isn't Autumn the best season of the year?  I love the clear days, albeit with cooler mornings and nights and of course who doesn't like the astonishing range of autumn colours.  Sadly living up here in the north we don't get quite the same range of intense colours, but everything is still pretty spectacular.  So this is the perfect time for Creative Craft Cottage to run this months 'Autumn' theme.  Also to help with your projects we've included a colour chart to assist with your colour selections.

Here's an oldie, but a goodie for you all.  These are some photos I took while on my big OE in 2010.  Sadly we only spent a couple of hours running around Kew Gardens, but I managed to take lots of photos especially of the fabulous autumn foliage.  Sadly it was a cold, drizzly afternoon, but isn't that when you get the best colour in your photos??
This layout was put together in a class, where we used several different TH dies, and lots of embossing, inking, distressing, & stamping.  I love the effect of the TH tattered leaves that were put through an embossing folder then inked.  All of us in the class came out with very different looking pages due to the big difference in photos of course.
I'm looking forward to seeing your gorgeous 'Autumn' projects.  There's still plenty of time to go out and take more photo's of those awesome leaves if you need to.  And remember that any crafted creation is acceptable for entry into our challenge.
