An Autumn Walk (by Gerrina)

Hello everyone, we have a blog post from our regular Guest Design Team contributor Gerrina today. Gerrina will be creating three projects for us this month, and for her first post, she has made a beautiful Autumnal journal page.

So is my turn again to show some things I made for the Guest Designer Team. Three weeks in a row you will find not only here, but also at my blog, makes from me with the beautiful stamps from Chocolate Baroque...
This week the first; an Art Journal page with an Autumn scene that really fits what we saw on a walk this week:

Used materials:

Stamps: Autumn Poppy and Nature's Peace
Ink: Versafine Antique Sepia
Water based markers
Other: Watercolour paper, masking paper, water brush, stamping platform


Place the first mushroom stamp on the stamping platform and colour it directly with the watercolour markers. Repeat this with and without misting with water, and draw the colour out with a water brush. Mask the mushroom stamp and stamp and colour the next two images in the same way with the stamping platform on your page. Mask the second mushroom and place the flower image on the stamping platform. Stamp and colour again with and without misting with water, and drawing out the colour with a water brush. Stamp just the word Autumn from the text stamp using brown ink.
