At Simply Create this time our Theme is 'Older Than 6 Months'. You can use anything that you have had for 6 months or more :-) Since I am feeling in Autumn mode I have gone with those colours.
I have two things on my project that are fairly old. The image I have used is from BECCY's PLACE, and is from the 'Harvet Set'. In case you've never been there.. a visit is a must - she gives away some fabulous images and there are masses of tutorials there too. :-D Well, I coloured the fruit basket digitally and then 'paper pieced' a wicker work image onto the basket... cool eh ??! I cut the image out twice to decoupage the fruit. Autumn leaves are from my stash and are raised on silicone for pop.
The backing papers were put through my Sizzix to emboss the dots. My cut out border is actually the same green I have used for the pears but it doesn't quite show that colour on here :-( The bronze card I have had in my stash for about 7 years - so that is my oldest item used for this creation. Ribbon is from my stash.
So go ahead and rifle through all those boxes and drawers and pull our your ancient bits you'd forgotten about :-) !!
