I really do love Fall! I love the crisp air (though it was 19 degrees here in St. John’s today), the colours of the leaves, I love seeing the fallen leaves blowing around on the ground, I love switching to my Fall wardrobe (yay boots!), I love the smell of pumpkin spice and I love Halloween. I love it all! The only thing crummy about Fall is that winter follows it (boo!).
So here’s mine:
All I did was randomly smear the cardstock with gesso and stuck a torn out page of an old book into the wet gesso. Once it was dry I misted it. First I used Dylusions Pure Sunshine and a little Fresh Lime because Ronda used Dylusions on her layout. I found that because of the gesso, I wasn’t getting the colour intensity I wanted so then I misted over it with Mister Huey’s Custard and Pumpkin Spice. That definitely gave me the colour I was looking for! Woohoo! Then I let the layout sit unfinished for a week while I was busy with other things. Finally tonight I grabbed a pumpkin photo and started layering it with random scraps of paper and washi tape. Then I added texture with random stamping and done! I like the grunge look and it was a lot of fun to do, so I will probably try something like this again!
