Some Autumn Pages and Using Up Old Papers

Hello everybody, I know it is unusual that I post again, but I had some pages I made over last Christmas holiday and I would love to share them with you. I would not scrap autumn pages right now as we are really looking forward to spring, and lately we had very bad stormy and cold weather, even Celtic spring starts officially on the 1st February! 

Firstly, I love when I use my papers for what I intended even if that is happening 4-5 years later.
So there is my first page today, the title is 'Autumn':

The photos are from 2009 so as the pattern papers layered up under the photos and felt stickers, all by Basic Grey.

Background is created using stencils, modelling paste, mists, gesso and inks. I applied modelling paste trough Prima stencil, let it to dry then used mists and gesso technique I learned from Finnabar to get this result. When talking about Finn, last time I September I had to drive all way to south of Ireland to attend to her workshop and now she is not only coming to Dublin, but she will be in an are 5 minutes driving from my estate YEY!!! Can't wait!

I used some old Prima, Basic Grey and WRMK embellishments as well as my very own home made mulberry paper flowers, and the close-up:

My second page is from the same event:

I used some new and some old embellishments, modelling paste and inks, burlap from my stash and paper roses are my own creation.

And my last page today is from the last autumn:

The photos are from our garden and our first apples from this tiny Cox apple tree. 

Thank you very much for your visit and have a nice day/evening.



  1. Love both pages Svetlana, love the techniques you have used, yikes I scrapped a page last week, my first for years and it looks so boring compared to yours, lol,

    Enjoy going 'down' the road to learn more from Finn xx

  2. Beautiful layouts, love your use of textures.

  3. Hi! I hear you about the bad weather...when will it ever end??

    I would not have guessed that your papers were old ones. The way you styled your pages looks fresh and modern. The photos are great and truly capture the fun and beauty of autumn.

    I am so glad that Ireland is getting online scrapping stores. Yay to not paying international shipping rates!

    Have fun seeing Finnabair!!! Lucky you. :)

  4. These are all so sweet !!!! I especially love the colours you chose for your third one, I think is my favorite!!!!
    Have a wonderfull weekend!!!
