You & You - a More than Words Challenge

Today I'm bringing another layout of my foray into mixed media. I used this month's prompt from More Than Words blog - to use an ampersand and the theme of together.

Here's the current challenge:

I had some fun with this photo of my boys playing in leaves on Thanksgiving. I'm so thankful for these little boys who love each other & love playing together.

I do not really enjoying using a ton of flowers on my layouts, so I'm on the lookout for unique alternatives. I'm about to start a new project scrapping my favorite nature photos, so other natural elements beside flowers are on my mind.

Here I have used some moss I had leftover from another project, and I found these fun, fall colored pompoms on clearance the other day.

The green netting is from a bag of avocados I bought at the grocery the other day.

Pipe cleaners & floral wire also appear, as well as some small gold beads.

I used some copper metallic dust with my texture paste, as well. I made that green leaf with hot glue & paint. Some old dictionary pages, a gratitude stamp, and an old paper leaf round it out.

No list of supplies because that paper is as OLD as the hills, and the supplies are really bits and pieces. It was super fun to create though!

Thanks for looking!
