Mixed Media With Autumnal Hues - Project 2

Hi again,  today I am showing you my second project for Country View Challenges this month.

My second project is a mini canvas board, using canvas, fabric, paint, paper, stamps and metal - pretty much mixed media!!

I started by painting a scrap of Tim Holtz elements fabric using PaperArtsy paints.

I loved how well the colours blended onto the fabric, and the colours look very Autumnal.  I glued this onto a canvas board and added a doily to the centre and set this aside.

Next, I brayered a scrap of card stock using the same colours and stamped Emma Godfrey leaves onto it, cutting them out once dry.

I really liked how these leaves turned out - they are so imperfect that they are perfect (well I think so anyway!!).

I then assembled them into a flower shape on the doily.  I curved the leaves and gave them dimension.

To finish, I added a metal button embellishment and drew a scribble border.

Don't forget that you still have chance to enter the Challenge  this month and there is a £20 voucher up for grabs to one lucky person.

Thanks for joining me today.......
