Love of rustling leaves - GDT Epiphany Crafts


Sunny Monday! To start the week off I'm sharing this page I did as a GDT to Epiphany Crafts

One of my favorite things about the autumn is the colorful leaves and especially how they rustle under your step! What could be more perfect than to walk in park with thick coverage or fallen leaves! So this page is about that joy.


I'm a mixed media style crafter so this page makes no exception. I love to play with my supplies and use them in different ways. For this page I used both the heart shape bubble caps and buttons to make the background. I used warm, rich colors that have an autumn feeling in them.

I started creating the background by covering the paper partly with gesso. On top I then adhered the heart shapes and then added mists and alcohol ink. The epoxy stickers resist the mist but get color from the alcohol inks which creates quite a neat looking effect! If you want to see how I then continued my page, please check out the start to finish video I created.


Here's a detail shot of the outlook of the background using mists and alcohol inks. If you don't use alcohol inks and wipe the epoxy shapes clean after misting, you can create a totally different looking page. If you want to see an example, please check this earlier video I've made (link).


On top of the hearts in the background I also used Epiphany Crafts details in embellishments. The cool chevrons lead the eye towards the photo and the two vintage settings together with the small Round 14 bubble caps act like flair buttons giving dimension to the page. I also added one heart treated with red alcohol ink to the photo to emphasize my love for the leaves.

Thank you for your visit! Have a great day!

  1. Your layout is once again so unadorned and plain and still significant piece of art with beautiful colour world and one or two matching embellishments. Congrats!

  4. I think that this is one of my fave layouts of yours :) I love the colours and those punches with the matching clear epoxy covers are just amazing. I need to find me some of those. I have never thought to add alcohol inks to mists I love how they react. A fabulous layout and an even more fabulous video. Absolute fave for me.
