Colours of Autumn

Talk about leaving things to the last minute! I didn't want to miss out on the Sunday Stampers challenge for this week as some of the autumn shades are my fav. & having missing mojo last week I didn't get to do "Leaves" for the previous week.So here goes..


    

I used Tim Holtz distressed inks in Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey & Aged Mahogany for the top half & Peeled Paint, Forrest Moss & Frayed Burlap or the bottom.I can't quite remember where I got the laef stamp from but I used a combo. of the above coloures with a blender pen to colour them.
Again, the tree is a mystery, (could be a Stampit stamp) but I've embossed it with black powder. The embellishments are Tim's.

Too Long!

Hi Everyone.... that's if anyone is still following!
I think my mojo is back.... it's been on long service leave! I was begining to think I'd been totally abandoned.
I'm going to start with showing you the next instalment of  my painting course.


We are working with a limited range of colours but I love the mix of the blues & rusty shades....this won't suprise anyone who knows me! It was time to add some dimension & texture using a heavy gel medium which takes 24 hrs to dry.... very frustrating as all you want to do is keep going!


 When I'd finished this one I thought I'd try a venture of my own( getting quite daring!!)
I know we're heading into our summer but I wanted to do something a bit wintery....sorry you guys in good old Blighty as it's coming into Winter there!!





I'm quite pleased withis one!
Anyway I'm off to do Sunday Stampers now before it closes.
