Ik heb een stuk papier met verschillend mulberry paper beplakt, in stukken gesneden en zo kleine serendipity vierkantjes gekregen.

Achtergrond: vissen met versamark gestempeld, gebrayerd met big&juicy Waterfall, water erover gesprenkeld en gedroogd.
De luchtbelletjes met een lege balpen en zwarte gesso gedaan.

Be afraid.....

Couleurs d'automne

Challenge for September on Katzelkraft is Couleurs d'automne (Colours of Autumn).

I started stamping the leaves with versamark. 
When dry brayered big&juice Foliage over it.
Stamped the lady and words with archival black.
Made some lines with black and white gesso using a creditcard.
Glued on some paper leaves, a brad and finished with glossy accents.

The Colours of Autumn

A Vintage Journey: Challenge 15 - The Colours of Autumn.

I started with a variety of yellow, orange, red, green, brown distress inks on the craftsheet, spritzed water and dragged the paper through it.
Dried with heattool, then wet my hand and flicked some water on.
Stamped the leaves with peeled paint and rusty hinge, cut out, sponged with scattered straw and coloured the edges.
Stamped the trees with gathered twigs distress ink.
Used a mini stapler for the ruler ribbon and glued the leaves on top of it.
Cut out some words ('distressables') and glued them at the bottom.

In an octopus's garden

I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade
He'd let us in, knows where we've been
In his octopus's garden in the shade.
