October Challenge Time At Creative Accents

Well September sure disappeared  quickly and we  are having some beautiful weather with the best fall colors happen- in..

So with that in mind as well as Halloween coming up fast here is your photo inspiration

I love the colors of fall myself.. (don't like the idea that winter comes next) 
walking in the dry leaves and the smells.. 
With that it mind here is my first item..

I used a Hero Arts stamp set with leaves.. 
Ranger Distress Inks in the fall pallet
Some nice ribbon in fall colors..
I stamped and cut out the stamp on post it note to use as a mask 
I laid the ink down on my work surface then wiggled and walked the stamp..
Masking off the leave before next stamp.. 

Also did a second item.. I can't remember for sure where I saw this I do believe it was 
The picture is not the best.. It is a Pumpkin   
I used Halloween pumpkin paper cut into 1" x6" strips
Distressed the edges.
two brads one for each end of the Pumpkin
punched holes approx.. 1/2" from each end 
Alternated the paper strips and formed my shape..
I cut leaves in different colored scraps and a vine from my Memory Box collection
These were all sprayed with shiny spray ( sorry don't remember which one I used)
Rolled the leaves slightly to give some die-mention
Stem is some rolled thin wire I had..

Will make a lovey fall center piece  or what have you.. quick to make

Looking Forward to see what you do..
