Hello again. It's time for a new IndigoBlu challenge - gosh where has the last month gone? Our challenge this month is Autumn Days - very appropriate for this time of year!
I don't know about you but I have mixed feelings about Autumn. I absolutely love the colours, reds, browns, oranges and yellows and walking through the leaves and hearing the crunching underfoot. BUT, once we are into Autumn we know Winter follows yuk! I hate the cold and the snow particularly as where we live can be a nightmare when it freezes!
Anyway, onto my DT project which I have done in my journal.
Hot Cocoa, Burning Bonfire, Postbox Red and Banana Custard were used to create the background and to colour some dictionary and music papers. I used a leaf stencil and structure paste for some texture and these leaves were painted with the same colours as the background. I also used the stencil with Miss Moneypenny and Goldfinger on the background and also swiped across the textured leaves with the same metallic paints.
Across the middle of my pages I wrote 'autumnal' highlighting with a white pen and some doodling.
I drew some leaves on the dictionary and music papers, cut them out and glued them down the sides of my journal adding some white dots to each. I used the bare tree stamp from Nature 1 around the pages and stamped the sentiment from the same set onto dictionary paper which was cut into pieces.
Its a pity the camera cannot pick up the full effect of the metallic paints, there is a such beautiful on shimmer on the leaves.
Hope you like my project and please do join in the challenge we would love to see your interpretations. Don't forget that for one lucky winner there is a prize of IndigoBlu stamps!
Take care and thanks for stopping by.
