Week Sixteen: Autumn!

It's officially Autumn, yay!

I love this time of year. In fact I love the whole time of year that isn't summer. I wish my birthday was some time in autumn, I think it's the perfect party weather in this part of the world.

So to celebrate saying goodbye to the hell that is Australian summer, I have made this week's project a lovely autumny tree. This is not new to my reportoire, but I've done it differently to previous trees and you can tell me what you think either way.

The leaves are different to my usual style, I really like this look for leaves at the moment.

We actually don't get a lot of deciduous trees around here, but it is a classic symbol of autumn and reminds me of some of my favourite towns in Australia that are populated with many deciduous trees.

Looking at it before I added the leaves, it was like the pins were drops of snow, and it was really sweet to me.

I'm thinking of doing more of this by making a four seasons art piece version. My main concern is where to get a big enough deep set frame to fit what I'm thinking...

I hope you enjoy this time of year as much as I do!

I love it, so pretty, and the leaves are not too heavy and taking over the entire design.
