Leaf journalling....

Hello friends

Hope you are all good
I cannot believe that its nearly November....this year is flying by!

I do really love this time of year, so many different shades of colour!
I'm a collector of just stuff, anything from, junk, books, photos or mother natures gifts...
I was inspired to have a go at journalling onto a leaf....I wasn't sure if it would work but I'm really happy with how it turned out!
I layered some old text onto the leaf using matt-medium, this helps preserve the leaf too!
I then added some stencilling, some stamping and photo from Tim Holtz Idea-ology ephemera pack and a cute frame (prima) 
I then carefully stitched into the leaf with my sewing machine and added some acorn shells, some vintage lace  to finish it off...the leaf was then backed onto some black card and cut into shape. 
This was really fun to create, it combined all the things I love...
Feel free to leave a comment, I appreciate each and everyone!
have yourselves a lovely weekend
