Autumn at Graph'It Colouring challenge

Hi there folks, goodness me I'm running late. I've had such a hectic week I totally forgot to schedule this post but better late than never. We've got a new challenge starting at Graph'It Colouring Challenge and our theme is 'Autumn', you don't have to use Graph'Its to play along and our lucky winner will receive some gorgeous Graph'It goodies to play with!

I've made a canvas for my DT project. I printed the gorgeous image (Octavia thinking from Polkadoodles) onto printable canvas paper and coloured her with my Graph'it markers - pop over to the challenge blog to see a full list of colours used.

I stencilled a background using my PanPastels and stamped some leaves in distress inks. Next I used a leaf stencil and Maimeri Iridescent Medium to create more leaves and left it to dry. Once it was dry I coloured the leaves with my Graph'It Markers, dabbing the colours on here and there and then gave them a light spritz of Mix'It spray to blend the colours. I used the same technique to create the polkadots around the edge of the canvas.

Here's another pic of the beautiful Octavia, you do have to be a bit careful colouring on the printable canvas, its coated with something and if you're a bit heavy handed the top layer kind of crumples so be gentle :-)

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Crafty Catz: Autumn
Wags'n'Whiskers: Fall colours

Thanks for popping by today
