Welcome back Blog Hoppers! Today our featured designer is Kari from New Leaf Stitches. She has a little project to share with everyone, so be sure to stop by and visit.
Our topic today is: Texture.
The texture that I think of in the fall is the crunchy fallen leaves. How they go from being soft and pliable, to be dried up and crunchy – Does that count as a texture?
This close-up shows some of the texture, but often times you hear the texture more than you see it. Does that make sense?
We live in several acres of wood, so if you step outside the house in the fall, you are bound to be walking through fallen leaves. With each step you hear the crunch, crunch, crunch. Can you hear it? There’s just something about it that makes fall special.
It makes you want to go hiking in the woods, just to hear it.
Or go outside and do yard work, just to hear it.
Or maybe invite your niece over so you can rake up a big pile of leaves and jump in them. No, you aren’t too old to do it!
You could even get engaged in the fall, so your aunt can take your engagement pictures out in the leaves. (If you are already married, I don’t recommend this one. I suppose you could just take an anniversary pictures out in the leaves)
In fact there are lots of things you could decide to do, just as an excuse to go out and walk in the leaves – I just don’t have any pictures in my stash to go with them! Still, just the thought of walking through those crunchy leaves brings back lots of good fall memories.
Now, off to the other bloggers to read about their favorite fall textures –
