Autumn Canvass




It's another beautiful Autumnal day out side today, so I am going with it ;0) The The stamp man are on week 7 and each fortnight they have a challenge and they're having, Autumn. Cindy over at Whimsical Musings asked me to play along,  you can enter anything. I have to say I love her other blog I owe it all to him if you get time pop along.  Also Gingersnap Creations who are asking for nutrals and one colour my colour is red! The rest is pretty nutral. And finally but by no mean least is the wonderful Stamping Sisters in Christ are asking for us to think about the Lords creations. I think the seasons are a wonderful part of the creation.


Here is a close up. You really wouldn't believe the amount of layers on this. First I put some Texture Paste on the canvass (left over night to dry) then I got some acrylic paints out, you should be able to see the hills and sky (you can make photos larger if you want to have a look) then tissue paper and lots of it all stamped with DIs and glued on (I used PVA 1/2 and 1/2 with water) Then I die cut out my leaves with the new TH die. This is gong to be so versatile. I used the technique  from page 33 of Tim's book CCs,  with a large  piece of quality card stock then allowed to dry, then die cut. And a final little touch of flakes of foil. The acyclic paints, texture paste and foil are available at the Altered Element. Do pop along to all the DTs I have taken part with they have some stunning talent to show you. Love Dawn xx

Dawn, this is gorgeous, and the wrinkle-free distress technique worked so wonderfully on those leaves! I love all the texture you created. The foil is such a great touch, too.

As a Gingersnap DTer, too, I think your neutrals with one bold is brilliant! That red just explodes off the canvas.

Brilliant work, girlfriend!
