The new September Challenge over at Our Creative Corner is from Julia,
She says, I love the colours of autumn! Those beautiful and dramatic reds, golds, yellows, browns, greens and all shades in between. Your challenge this month is to take some inspiration from the colours in the image provided and make an autumnal inspired project.
I really enjoy walks through the woods with my family. This photo was from a fun day out at Centre Parcs, Woburn. My Granddaughter loved to balance on the fallen tree trunks! This is how I created the page for my scrapbook.
I used TH Tattered Leaves die and embossing folder, then gave the leaves some Vintage Photo and Treasure Gold for a sparkle of Autumn sun. I used Cor’dinations Metal paper in gold to make extra leaves.
I marked where my matted photo would go on a 12×12 sheet of scrapbook paper from my stash. I built up layers of stencilled leaves, first Distress Inks in shades of green and brown then tinted Grunge Paste to add depth. I was working on a pile of wind blown leaves effect! I put some splatters and spray on top.
I wanted some textures to give an Autumnal feel so hessian ribbon was attached with eyelets so give more flexibility. I tried various ribbons through the eyelets but eventually tied some textured thick wool which had the colours of our jackets threaded in the black.
I matted the photo onto card and then created a wood effect layer to add the title. I did this by dragging Walnut DI across the kraft card and then ruled lines to make planks, it looks effective.
The title was some chipboard letters in the same colour as the scrap paper. A quick spray of metallic gold added a sparkle. I added some stamping from Finnabair, Now is the right time, and Create magic.
