In the meantime, 

Take a peek at the gorgeous products and palette Prima have put together for this month 


These colours look positively awesome together. 

Certainly lots to be inspired by and I did have so many ideas for this.  

In the end, I took the inspiration of the leaves, pulled out some gorgeous  Prima products and went to my happy creating place.

I started with the Aglow Leaves and this is where my inspiration took me

The colours provided the perfect foundation for creating a 'Fall' Inspired Wreath for the home.
 At the moment it takes pride of place resting over one of the door handles on my kitchen dresser.

To start with,  I first created a circular frame base from sturdy chipboard.
I then worked my way round the base by wrapping, layering and attaching Aglow and Splendor leaves and vines.  I did find that a hot glue gun was very handy during this construction process.

I then created a little scene with the help of a Twiddleybitz Arch Gate and FenceCast Iron Gate and Miniature House.

The Arch was positioned to sit behind the house.

The little house is the taller one from the pack which contains 3 houses.  It was first altered altered with Prima North Country patterned papers.

The main house piece was embossed before attaching.

Some small strips of paper were punched with a border punch and attached to resemble eaves and decorative fret work.

Resin pieces were added to complete the 'homey' touches. These were lightly painted with Turquoise Blue  glimmer mist and inked in with brown Stazon Ink.

Accents of dark and light teal were added with a sprinkling of pretty rose,  trellis blooms and Alla Prima patterned  paper accents.
