Fall Paper Crafting

Today I want to show you a few of my gall paper crafts.
I love working with paper.
Any kind of paper from
book pages to the elaborate scrapbook papers
just speak to me.
And, I absolutely am in love with words on any
form of medium.
I think there is nothing that can take it's place.
So, I would, of course, have to have paper crafting
in my Fall decor.

This little vignette is full of paper crafting.
It starts with a stack of books - no covers.
And on top is a dollar store pumpkin that I decoupaged with
book pages.
Then inked it to make it look rustic.
Then I glued some faux flowers and leaves on top.
The pumpkin on the left is a book page pumpkin made from
an old paper back book that I added a stick stem
and a piece of burlap to.
The subway art is a piece of plywood
I painted with black chalkboard paint
then applied a rub on sticker to that I had from years ago.
All three of these items I made last year.
The owl came from Michael's this year
and I love it sitting here looking so cute.

scrapbook paper wreath

This wreath I made several years ago.
The flowers are all cut with the Cricut from scrapbook papers.
The centers of the flowers
are large brads, buttons, ribbons, whatever I had on hand.
Faux leaves were added to the cardboard base
before the flowers were glued on.
This is a very simple project
and I love the bright colors in it.

This simple paper vignette sits on top of our bookcase.
How appropriate book page crafts
above books -
quite thought provoking don't you think....

What is your favorite go to medium for crafting with?
Do you use old paper books in any way?

Until next time
have fun creating something you love...
