I have to say summer is my favorite season. I so enjoy the sun, the sea, and summer vacation in Croatia.
However.. every year I am discovering the charms of Autumn more and more. I love the beautiful color nature provides, it makes me happy. The little ones love Autumn too. Their favorite activity? Going into the forest looking for (and eating) berries. You can imagine how enthusiastic I was when I saw the new canterbury collection with those cute berries. Totally beautiful!! And of course I had to use those pictures right away. ~ Mireille Divjak

I used multiple layers of paper, distressed them and made faux-stitches with pen.
I outlined the photo with a black pen and bent the vine around the photo. This is real easy to do because the vine is flexible and you can bend it any way you want. I attached it with glue dots behind the leaves. I placed a half circle at the right top and used it for my Autumn stamp and title. I first attached the leaves around the circle with glue dots and then placed my title. Next to the stamp I attached the mini vine with berries.
For the "Berries" layout I used a scalloped diecut sheet, attached it to a regular patterned paper sheet and distressed the edges.
I outlined my photo's with a black pen, made a photo mat and used a decorative scissors for the scallops and created some faux-stitches with pens. I used a border punch and pleated it to go beneath the photo's.
Then I bend the berry - vine and placed the title over it. I used a little metallic gold rub on the flowers on the vines.
