It's October, and autumn is just around the corner.

Hello bloggers, it's October already, and summer has come and gone. However, love the colours that autumn brings, so my Obtober calendar page is filled with those lush warm colours.
I used Distress Stains in Gathered Twigs, Tea Dye, Walnut Stain, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters as well as Lemon Zest Dylusion spray on an aquarel background. After drying I cut out the leaves with a Cheery Lynn stencil. Love the way they cut and make the vains in the leaves. 
The background was made with Distress Inks applied with a blending tool on a gessoed background. I stamped T.H. leaves with an ochre embossing powder, the letters for the month and year were cut with a Sizzlit alphabet set called Bozo.
 I also stamped some skeleton leaves, had this stamp for ages and really don't know the make.
 I loves making the leaves, but I'll admit, I hated gluing them down LOL! What a heck of a job! Never doing that again haha!
Have a great month, hugs Frea
