Hello my crafty friends,
It was only a couple of days ago that we were basking in the sunshine but over the last couple of days, autumn has well and truly arrived! There's a definite chill in the air and the garden is a little on the damp side. On the plus side, the leaves are changing colour on the trees and for me, the palette that autumn paints is the prettiest of all. With all of this in mind, I decided that I would create an autumnal page for my art journal and this is the result:
I started by sponging some distress inks in yellow and orange to create my background. Unfortunately, the orange doesn't show too well in this photo. The stamps that I've used with the excetion of the sentiment are all by Chocolate Baroque from their 'Autumn Poppy' set. The sentiment is by Inkylicious. This was a labour of love as I stamped and cut out masks for each of the mushrooms. I did this as I wanted to push some into the background to create some depth. Once this was all done, I then set about adding some colour. I used various inks and brush pens to do this. Finally, I finished by sponging some colour around the edges and using a white Posca pen to add some highlights here and there. I haven't had these stamps very long but now felt like the perfect time to use them.
Take care of yourselves, keep safe and keep warm xx
