Good morning my lovelies, the weather has really changed this weeks with some chilly mornings and some beautiful autumn sunshine. I love this time of year so I've really enjoyed creating this Autumn themed wall hanging using some of my favourite stamps from Chocolate Baroque where this month the DT will be sharing Autumn or Halloween projects on the Chocolate Baroque Blog
I began by creating a distress ink background on a strip of white card. I used Wild Honey, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade and a little Barn Door. Once that was dry I stencilled in the sun using acrylic paints in shades of yellow and orange. Next I stamped in the images which are all from Autumn Poppy A4 stamp sheet using Potting Soil Archival Ink.
I coloured the images using Lyra pencils, I was really pleased with the way the sun rays just show through the leaves and berrries a little bit. I used my pencils to add some shading and grass around the toadstools and added some white spots with white gesso.
I distressed the edges with Forest Moss and Gathered Twigs distress ink and layered it up on brown card. Next I used corrugated card to create a base layer. I misted the card with water and peeled off the top layer and then just randomly applied shades of brown, red, orange and green acrylic paint. Once the paint was dry I added some highlights with gilding wax.
To finish off I added some string, a bow topped with a button and brass leaf.
