Autumn is in the Air...Winter is coming...

Hello Autumn... Lisa here, bringing you 2 projects today. I will start out with a card (I'm learning how to create them!!) that reflects the colors of the season. Autumn is in the air in some parts of the world. I used a small piece of the the Chain Link chipboard panel as it reminded me of lattice. I base coated it with gesso and sprayed it using a golden /green shimmery spray.

Here is a close up of the Chain Link chipboard. I just cut it randomly not worrying about cutting a straight line.

I base coated the You Shine words  with white gesso, sprayed it with a color spray and topped it with some clear crackle paint to give it a textured sheen .

                                                               The Optimist Word Set
                                                                        Chain Link

My next project is a layout  using a winter photo, but I kept the colors on the layout in a warm tone, fading Autumn out until the cold sets in...

  I base coated the Sign Post and Pretty Weeds chipboard with white gesso and sprayed it with colored spray while the gesso was still wet. It created a pretty speckled look when you dry it with a heat tool.

Just a closeup of the post. I added a small acrylic covered sticker inside the Sign Post.

                                                                    Village Sign Post 2
                                                                        Pretty Weeds
