Autumn - a mixed media layout

We've had some strong thunderstorms with rain, and it's quite unsual here to have that strong thunderstorms. On the other hand, it's very hot too.  Autumn, anyone?
So no wonder my new layout is all about autumn. The photos of my youngest, were taken 5 years ago, on a stroll we had in a lovely place, and as you can see, it was all autumn around.
I was inspired by the fab moodboard at Mixed Media Place:
I took inspiration from the autumn photos - the acorns, the mashroom, the falling leaves.
I must say, this layout was a Lindy's festive for me. I used so many of thier products to achieve the colors I wantd for my layout.
I started by tearing some of the papers and distressing the edges with TH Tea Dye distress ink. Then I  layered the papers and splattered with Oktoberfest Orange shaker and Antique Bronze shaker:
I stamped with 49 and Market stamp (Pascale writing), using Ranger's Coffee archival ink here and there:

For the redish-brwon leaves, I mixed some Lindy's shakers: Aged Copper, Antique Bronze, Autumn Maple Crimson, Cowabunga Copper and Oktober Orange. I added from each shaker till I got the right color I wantd. Then I die cut the leaves.
For the brownish-orange leave, I mixed Lindy's flat sprays: Luscious Lime, Queen of Hearts Red and Mango Mania I also added Yellow Rose of Texas starburst spray. I made sure to color both sides of my watercolor paper, and die cut another shapes of leaves.
As for the mesh die cut, it started as an experiment for a previous project (which you can see HERE) - I used the same ebmossing powder, Terra Cotta Rust, once on a white cs, and then on a black cs. In the previous project I ended up using the one on the white cs, as the other one was too dark for that project:
I was left with the darker version and when I worked on this layout, I thought it's a perfect match:
I really like the different looks of using Lindy's products on white or black background.
I adhered the photos and made two clusters, using Petaloo flowers with my diy leaves.
On the clusters I splattered Lindy's Grag a Guy Gold spray, to get the gold look:

I just LOVE how it turned out!
I finished up with sparkly alphas and enamel dots:

Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much.
