Theme Thursday - Orange and Black


Orange and black, the theme for Theme Thursday......what immediately comes to mind is Hallowe'en. This page, however, was created for a round robin journal swap. I really liked the look of the printed transparency over top of the scrapbook paper filled with Autumn leaves. One of my "traditions" in the fall is to go for long walks on my lunch hour and collect bags of leaves. I scour the ground for a variety of colours, shapes and sizes then dry them in my microwave with my Microfleur. The smell I create in the kitchen is very "organic". I then have them readily available throughout the year for my artwork. The lovely image is from Paper Whimsy.
