Hello all of my Scrapalicious friends! I have been taking apart this fabulous tree album that Maya road created and turning it into a Autumn Banner, and you can to.

I have simply taken the wonderful little tree and covered it with some great Cosmo Cricket paper. I love these papers with there warm colors, they truly give the feel of falling leaves and warm apple pie. I punched leaves out of the coordinating papers to adhere to the trees. After inking the edges of all the papers, (this truly finishes off what ever you are working on) I started putting it all together.

Using Rangers great Crackle medium, I covered some of the leaves, which really gave a great veining affect. And other leaves I covered with the clear coat so they had dimension. Next, I didn't have the proper size letters for the word "FALL". So I printed them off the computer, cut them out, and covered them with a clear coat. This is a simple way to get what you want and easily make it look great.

With the addition of some great black and white ribbon, (that I added brown ink to) I strung it all together to hang. So what do you all think? So simple to do and you will love the result. Just pick your favorite fall papers and make it all your own. Hey I am picturing some great winter colors, with a snow bird in the tree... Oh no I need to take apart another book now!
