Welcome autumn

Driving to school

It is the first day of autumn. School days have already started. In the mornings I drive my kids to daycare and school respectively. My daughter and me are having the loveliest conversations in the car on our way. She has just got to know, that some kids' parents are separated. She added: "but you and dad are not separated. Daddy can't cook at all, thus you need to live together!" Yes sweety, that is the reason ;-)

Due to my heritage, my kids are going to Russian school as well, which starts in September. It is a tradition to come with flowers. This time I also prepared a small card to be given to the teacher. It is inspired by the golden tones of the late summer sun and buzz of autumn in the air.


The cards were rather quick to make. Wooden background and a torn page from an old book. Paper in old books is already dark and yellow, which makes the pages perfect for a vintage look. Leaves are distressed die cuts of the plain water colour paper, and few flowers in the same colour palette added to the cluster.


The finishing touch on each card is splash of white paint, to bring some life into the embellishments. I added a couple of enamel dots as well, to tie together the wooden background with the bright cluster colours.


This card is a combination of artificial and natural embellishments. Autumn is perfect for filling up the scrapbooking stash with acorns, wheat ears or flower herbarium.
