I'm really honored for the opportunity to be able to join in on Ella Claire Inspired's fall printable tour this year with some amazing ladies. We are each sharing a autumn vignette that includes a printable we've designed especially for you! I love seeing how everyone comes up with such uniquely different ideas to share with our readers, don't you?
The fall season has always made me feel excited for the opportunity to once again start fresh. Whether it was getting a new box of colored pencils to take with me on the first day of third grade or moving into a college apartment that needed decorated and organized, autumn meant that I could begin again. Even now, many years later, I go into September with a renewed sense of anything being possible because I can start with a clean slate.
Much like at the start of a new year, I enjoy making resolutions to get rid of some bad habits and replace them with good ones. And I find that fall, much like spring, is another time perfect for cleaning out and sprucing up. As my summer wardrobe gets replaced by a warmer, cozier version, I empty out those belongings that aren't fulfilling their purpose any longer.
So, as I was gathering ideas and inspiration for today's post, I came across a quote on Pinterest that perfectly sums up my feelings for the fall season.....
"Autumn reminds us how beautiful it is to let things go."
As trees loose their leaves and the colorful plants and flowers of summer fade, we are entranced by the beauty of nature around us. While each season is special for different reasons, fall is the only season where we celebrate things actually changing to go away.
In honor of trying to celebrate letting things go this fall, I attempted to put my bad habit of perfectionism aside and picked up my paintbrush to create today's printable. I've never tried watercolor, but achieved the same sort of washed effect using watered down acrylic paints. It was actually very therapeutic to work on something that couldn't be perfect. I gave up control, and let my paint brush dance over the surface of my paper.
This autumn, I hope that we can all be inspired by the trees letting go of their leaves to let go of a few things of our own, whether they be physical or emotional. Embrace the beauty of the season along with the beauty you can create in your own life.
If you connect with this message and would like a copy for yourself, feel free to download it using the link below and use it in your fall decor. Please know that it is for personal use only and cannot be resold in any form.
For best results, print this out on heavy card stock. It is heavier than normal paper and will give you a more professional piece to use in your home and will hold up better than a lightweight piece of paper.
And now, please take a moment to check out a few more of the other 35 printables and beautiful vignettes from some very talented bloggers!
