The Art Challenge for September over on 12 Months in View is to create some decorative papers with everyday items.
I used scraps of neutral coloured patterned papers.
I covered them with Autumnal coloured paints.
I stencilled them with home made stencils.
I stamped them with household items.
Cut up into rectangles and then patchworked onto my page.
I added my latest craft club pieces from the "Metal Effects" class.
a) Embossed Metal Tape covered card coloured with Alcohol inks.
b) Gilding Flakes - the latest addition to my stash!
Then I added some of the flying birds from my new die.
Yep - just HAD to add the words "FLY SOUTH" as Winter is looming and the birds will be leaving for warmer climes.
Finally some white pen highlights and doodles to finish.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.
