Carole's Seasonal Changes

Hello everyone

Today Angel Carole is back with multiple projects - Seasonal Changes 
using the Spellbinders Leaves die set.

A clever idea to use different leaves and colours to make wreaths to represent the seasons.

Carole is sharing with us her thoughts on making her projects.

I love this Leaves die that was sent to me for my latest Elliott’s Angels’ project – 
it was just crying out for a Big Project.
What says more of the changing seasons than the leaves? 
So I decided to do a pretty wreath featuring leaves for each one.
This is a very versatile die with two leaf shapes and several different inserts – 
there’s so much you could do with it. I tried to make each season a little bit different.
The background is 12x12 white linen card and I thought you could 
use the designs as pages for an scrapbook annual or, perhaps, 
frame them as wall art.
I tried to pick colours that would speak of the season too: 
fresh greens for Spring, the colours of ice-cream, sunshine and sea for Summer, 
the rich browns and oranges for Autumn and cool, 
pearlised silver and white for Winter. 
I think the Summer one is my favourite, but I really enjoyed doing them all.
Thanks for a great die, Elliott!

Happy crafting! C : ) xx

Hello Elliott and Carole
Wow these are stunning and a great idea of how to use this die set. I love the Christmas one.
They would look good framed which could be changed each season.
