Tuesday Tagger ~ Shades of Autumn

My mum always used to say that time goes quicker as you get older and I used to think she'd gone potty but here I am thinking Oh Oh it's Tuesday again, better get my Tuesday Taggers DT posted, and wondering where the week has gone.

There's no greater reminder of the passing of time than Autumn, with it's wonderful colours and the cosiness of evenings snuggled on the sofa, I love it, the dark nights, the fresh cool air and brilliant technicolour days.

With this in mind I made a few more autumn leaves for the Tuesday Taggers Challenge.

The small leaves were left over from my hedgehog card so I thought I'd make leaf shaped tag and decorate it. After cutting it with the robo, spraying with shimmer mists and sculpting the shape it seemed a shame do do much else with it so just added a Haiku poem. I did this one in white
And this one I wrote the poem out with my hot foil pen. I can't decide which I like and am going to make them into a canvas so could do woth a decision.


Help me out peeps, which one do you like?

The talented lot over at Tuesday Taggers have created some awesome work again, it fair blows you away! Pop over and have a look, Autumn colours give huge scope for creativity and it's amazing how varied projects can be. Looking forward to visiting your blogs.

x Michelle

Just to throw a spanner in the works I'd go for something completely different like a burnished gold or copper lettering - but hey I'm a patchworker what the heck would I know about papercrafting?

I Love the white one best but do agree with Anne gold letering would look great too x Janet

These are just so fabulous! Wish I had a Robo.
I prefer the one with white lettering, and perhaps a copper lettering would look good too.

They are both gorgeous but I prefer the white writing although now I've read someone mentioning copper or gold maybe that would be better.

This is a stunner Michelle, the colours are pure Autumn and I love the poem (written in the white pen if I'm honest).

Hi Michelle, both are gorgeous, but I'm with the majority on this one,I prefer the white to the multicolour but copper or gold would look stunning.
