Autumn at Just for Fun

Last of the seasons at JFF this week and what fun it has been to escape from making Christmas cards and look ahead to the New Year with the challenges.

There are still lots of autumn leaves around so I collected some and stood them in baby oil for a while to make them supple. After that I used punches to cut out shapes to make a couple of autum coloured flowers. Lastly I found this lovely quote by John Donne who is one of my favourite poets and has helped me many times in my life when he seemed to have a poem for every occassion.


  1. I never had thought of soaking leaves in baby oil to make them supple. Thanks for that one Chrissie. Lovely tag, love the autumnal colours you have used and those flowers are pretty. Must investigate John Donne. Anyway - thanks for joining us at JFF and Merry Christmas. Hugs, neet
