It’s the end of October and I am feeling fallish.

This whole fall season is showing up in my creativity sessions. In my photography. And in my home.

And since today is Minc It Monday, it is fall is also coming out of my Minc Machine too. That sounded weird didn’t it?

Today I want to show you how I took this idea from a couple of years ago:

(you can find that post right here…Champagne Foiled Wreath)

And created a variation on this theme but for a scrapbook page.

I used the Minc Reactive Screen Ink. Treating it like a texture paste, I scraped it through a polka dot stencil on to several die cut fall leaves.

The result was this awesome dot texture left on the die cuts. I used water color paper for a sturdy medium. And another thing I want to point out, if you try this at home, make for sure that you let that ‘texture paste’ dry really well. You’ll see why in the video tutorial.

When dry, the leaves are all ready to be run through the Minc Machine. And I promise you. It does not matter what season of year it is, I like me some Champagne Foil all year long. So Champagne Foil it was for these leaf embellishments.

The results? These fall leaf embellishments ready for your scrapbook page, card or even planner.

Check out this video. Not only will I show you how I made these leaf embellishments, but I will also show you the process for creating the layout page in which said leaves were featured.

I adore how this layout turned out. The fall leaves make for a beautiful feature. They are not hard to make. Then the possibilities are endless how this idea can be used in other variations.
