*** OCT KOM "Farmer's Market and Hayride" Flying Unicorn***

Summer has bid her farewell and the morning air is crisp as the leaves turn from greens to golds.
These are the days where weekend mornings are driving down the country lane and stopping at the Farmer's market for some apple cider as the children frolic in the pumpkin patches and tug asking if they to can have a hayride. With the Solace of Fall Flying Unicorn is proud to present to you our October Kit of the month Farmer's Market and Hayrides.

The summer-flower has run to seed,
And yellow is the woodland bough;
And every leaf of bush and weed
Is tipt with autumn’s pencil now.

And I do love the varied hue,
And I do love the browning plain;
And I do love each scene to view,
That’s mark’d with beauties of her reign.
John Clare

Our You Tube channel is filled with great techniques and tutorials to help you grow and learn . Every month as the kit is released we add to our you tube library and this month is no exception. Join Jen this month as she takes you step by step in creating this amazing layout.
