New Challenge at Mixed Media World

Hello everyone and welcome. Thank you for stopping by today, I do appreciate your visits. I'm sharing my inspiration for the new challenge at MMW which the lovely Laine chose for us, which is

Anything Goes with Autumn Colours.


It's a mixed media challenge so get out all your crafting stuff and have a go. There are some amazing inspirations on the blog from my teamies so pop over and take a look. Hopefully we will inspire you you to play along and you could be in with a chance to win a prize from our sponsor this month which is.



My journal page started life as an autumn page but as I started spraying my background I thought

why not give it a bit of a twist. I used the colour palette of autumn but chose to go in a different

direction. So here it is.

And this is how I did it

Started by spraying my page with Media Mist from DecoArt in Yellow, Red Orange and Pink.


                                               I let it dribble down the page.


Next came stencils from Andy Skinner by DecoArt ( That's Crafty have a fab supply of DecoArt Products ) using Little Black Dress from Paper Artsy

I stamped and cut out the pumpkins Hp Hallowean 03 from Paper Artsy as well as die cut the butterfly from Tim Holtz. I played around where I wanted them to be before preparing them to stick on.

The pumpkins I painted with Fresco Acrylic Paint in Haystack and Autumn Fire and the butterfly in Haystack once it dry I coated it in Burnt Umber Antiquing Cream which darkened it slightly and then clear embossed it.

       I also used some words stamps from Emma Godfreys new stamp plate From Paper Artsy

                                  So you have a month to play along, have fun!

Take Care Debs xxx
