Autumn Reflections

Hello All,

Yesterday I was lucky enough to get through to Elgin and visit the home of Sugar Nellie! My lovely hubby took me so I could get a little break from life!......I was speaking to the fabulous Kate, an incredibly talented lady.......and she told me how to create reflections using acetate. I have done reflections before years ago using a brair......I have to say this is much much easier, so thank you Kate for teaching me something new!!!! Before when I did reflections I used water colours, but this time I have tried it with copics.....still need a little practice with that one, but guess you have to start somewhere!!

The papers are from my scrap pile so I have no idea what they are, and the leaves are from an old sheet of peel offs I have (I am still working on trying to get through all the stuff I have collected over the years!)

I have enjoyed having a little play this eve, hope it will not be too long before I get the chance again!!!

Off to one of the many weddings tomorrow, My husband and I have just been informed that we are taking the official photos.....(nothing like forward planning!!!).....eeek, mild panic setting in now!!!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
