Hello! Another project today as guest designer at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge . This week the challenge theme is Autumn.
I made a project recently using 4 ATC sized greyboard panels on a 6x6 inch panel and I loved the layout - so though I would repeat it! You can find the original here - same idea, very different though!
I started by taking 4 greyboard ATC's and scratching and cutting off the edges - an Andy Skinner trick! I then painted them all and the 6x6 inch base with black gesso - ensuring I stippled the paint for added texture.
Once dry I dry brushed white gesso over the surface to catch the texture. When fully dry I reached for some translucent paints adding PaperArtsy Banana over the panels and a little DecoArt Quinacridone Red around the edges.
Once dry I adhered to my base panel.
Next I reached for Tim Holtz Mini Tattered Leaves dies cutting 8 and using various distress paints (Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Aged Mahogany and Fossilized Amber) to colour them. I added a few vein marks with a pen too. I covered them in glossy accents and left to dry.
I cut an extra little panel for the centre and painted it as the ATC panels - before adding a Small Talk sticker.
