The vibrant leaves help create wonderful movement in this piece. It's gorgeous and easy to make! Here is what Gloria had to say about her inspiration for this darling wall hanging.

"As soon as I saw the An ABC Primer Happy Go Lucky paper I knew I wanted to make a seriers of wall hangings for our homeschool room. I decorated this one in a fall theme using Spellbinders™ die templates and Core'dinations cardstock to make all of the leaves. Once the leaves were all cut, I sanded them to give them a worn look, then layered them. The finished piece is just a little larger than 6 x 6 inches." -Gloria Stengel
