It was also a good day to catch up on a few projects, get the house straightened up and do a bit more decorating for fall. And I was excited to get to put together the little tablescape that I envisioned when I saw this cute filigree pumpkin at Hobby Lobby. It needed a few more elements...and I wanted to bring in some of the colors of fall....so I picked up a variety of wooden acorns to go with it - knowing that I could find a way to add color to them (I forgot to take a "before" picture...but they were all brown like their tops - I didn't do anything to those).
I did do a little video to show you the process...it is a simple collage technique with stamps, tissue paper and gel medium.
If you would like to see the whole tutorial, watch this video.
I like using this technique on anything that does not have a flat surface...and of course you know that I like using it to create mini album covers or backgrounds for cards or scrapbook pages. It is a pretty good "go to technique" for you...and I hope you try it out for yourself!
I think you will notice that I used a few of the felt leaves that I created during my last project...am sure they will show up again during this Fall Project Series.
And just to give you a bit of a hint of what to expect in Project # 4....check out the picture below.
I have been really enjoying an artist from Australia - Louise....and her blog: an uninterrupted view. I love the way she uses white space and a really ORGANIC feel to all of her layouts. Here are a couple that I could just stare at for hours and still feel like there is so much left to explore. Double click on each of them to see them in a larger format...and be sure and go check out her blog for more inspiration.
My next project will explore taking some of the inspiration I found in Louise's art and creating a fall scrapbook page. I am still experimenting....but I am having the BEST time...so I think you will want to come back for #4 in our series. In the meantime, have a great week...and be sure and take time for some creative play.
