Autumn Splendor ATC

My local atc group has mail in swaps and then an in-person swap every third month. At our last in-person swap in July for the project we made background paper using crumpled brown paper bags. We painted on them with acrylic paints using brushes and stencils or stamps and then we sprayed them with spray webbing and glitter spray. Every single one came out gorgeous. So our theme for the September mail in swap was to use our paper in some way on our atcs. For mine I used it as a background and then also punched leaves. I attached the leaf to a black square, punched 2 small holes in the black cardstock and added a thin piece of wire by bringing the 2 ends up from the back, twisting them around the stem of the leaf and then spiraling the ends by wrapping them around a toothpick. The words were done with a Dymo labeler.
