Nature's Abundance with Gecko Galz

I'm on the Gecko Galz blog today with projects following the challenge theme this month -- Nature's Abundance.

Supplies used:
(Affiliate links used when available; thank you for your support!)
Autumn Queens Collage Set
Fall Into Nature Digital Collage Set
Lovely Sentiments (can't find in shop at this time)
Jaded Blossom Happy Fall Gnomie
Jaded Blossom Doily Dies
Jaded Blossom Fancy Leaves Dies
VersaFine Clair Ink in Fallen Leaves

All of the Autumn Queens image are absolutely stunning.. I just selected to use this one for an embellished art journal page.  I always love when my torn book pages have sentences or phrases that coordinate with my projects.  That is never just happenstance; I carefully selected to position this beauty atop the page with the sentence above and below showing.  It creates a whole different layer of embellishing (I think).

For my second project, I created a card using this sweet squirrel munching amongst a copious amount of pumpkins and squash.  I found this sentiment in my stash and it made me giggle.  I distressed the perimeter of the squirrel image and layered it atop and ink-smooshed die cut leaf.

For my final project, I embellished the top of a container filled with yogurt covered raisins.  The sentiment was from the same set used on my card.  A different die cut leaf in gold was layered atop a doily cut from a vintage book page.  Our sweet fox sits atop, nested comfortably amongst a cozy pile of autumn leaves.

Be sure to join us in the Gecko Galz Papercrafting Challenge Group on Facebook to participate in our monthly challenges.

I'm also entering this into the Jaded Blossom September 2023 Challenge: Anything Goes!
