What's On My Workspace Wednesday

For September in my CollageATCs Yahoo Group, our swap theme was Fall, here are my cards for the swap:
Starting in the bottom left hand corner and going clockwise:
The background paper is from when I did some distress spraying and masking, you can't see much of that paper, due to the yellow handmade paper I added to it. On top of that are 4 leaf images that I colored and a clear leaf sticker, all of those came in the packet.
Upper left: background paper is from distress spraying and masking, you can see a 3 leaf branch and a 4. I added leaf die cuts and a brown button with a yellow gem in the middle. The button and gem were in the packet.
Upper right: I stamped leaf images on an old book page and colored them in with markers. You can't tell from the picture, but the red maple leaf is dimensional, the stamped image was in the packet and I put some foam tape under it. There's also a little bug sticker on the large leaf, which was also included in the packet.
Bottom right: the background is a bunch of sequin leaves that were in the packet, and then there's a dog playing in leaves sticker that was also in the packet.
Here's my other set of cards, starting in the bottom left corner and going clockwise:
Bottom left: once again the background paper is when I did some distress spraying and masking. I added the punched grass and a stamped tree. The items from the packet are the leaf punches on the tree and the sunflower button in the corner.
Top left: Again, I stamped leaf images onto old book paper, items from the packet are the acorn and the smiling apple.
Top right: background is pre-cut wallpaper, I added the grass punch, and the items from the packet are all the leaves and pinecone, as well as the scarecrow sticker.
Bottom right: background is a red card. I included some colored tinsel in the packet and was curious to see what it would do if heated, the "hair" on the leaf man is the result. I added some eyes and the metal piece for the smile. Items from the packet are the tinsel hair, the silk leaf for the head, and the metal for the smile.
I hope you like my cards, next week I will have an altered tin for my other yahoo group.

Lovely ATCs. Perfect little fall masterpieces. Sorry I'm late for WOYWW. You would think I'd get here sooner, since I'm number 1.

I love the way that you are using stash from previous projects. And such lovely autumnal colours; makes me feel like going for a walk and swishing through the leaves.
