Good morning, Claire here with my first project for October. I love this time of year with the beautiful colours and chilly mornings, perfect for dog walking and of course a little crafting too. I've made a little wall hanging using stamps from Autumn Poppy A4 stamp sheet
I began by creating a distress ink background on a strip of white card. I used Wild Honey, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade and a little Barn Door. Once that was dry I stencilled in the sun using acrylic paints in shades of yellow and orange. Next I stamped in the images which are all from Autumn Poppy A4 stamp sheet using Potting Soil Archival Ink.
I coloured the images using pencils, I was really pleased with the way the sun rays just show through the leaves and berries a little bit. I used my pencils to add some shading and grass around the toadstools and added some white spots with white gesso.
I distressed the edges with Forest Moss and Gathered Twigs distress ink and layered it up on brown card. Next I used corrugated card to create a base layer. I misted the card with water and peeled off the top layer and then just randomly applied shades of brown, red, orange and green acrylic paint. Once the paint was dry I added some highlights with gilding wax.
To finish off I added some string, a bow topped with a button and brass leaf.
Thanks for visiting today,
