Autumn Leaves by Lynne Moncrieff



 

 
Autumn is most definitely in the air and so I had to use Artistic Outpost’s Bluebird, in particular the collage of the boy along with a fabulous Prima Bark Butterfly and other rustic elements.

 
SUPPLIES

EcoGreen Crafts Acrylics:- Aged Gold, Bronze and Copper
Stencil – Leaves
7”x5” Canvas
Stencil Brush
Distress Inks:- Old Paper, Rusty Hinge and Tea Dye
Extras:- Linen style fabric recycled from a fabric box, burlap, fragment of rusted fabric, leaf motif from vintage doily, jute string, found paper, cotton fabric (recycled from curtain lining), corrugated cardboard and die-cut (kindly supplied by a friend)

 

INSTRUCTIONS
 

Adhere linen style fabric from fabric box to canvas.


Armed with various EcoGreen Crafts Acrylics and stencil, apply the motifs to the panel. A stencil brush gives the best results. Lightly sponge Distress Inks onto panel.
 
 
 


In my stash I already had this panel of cotton fabric stained, you can stain with Distress Re-inkers for similar results. Stamp boy from Artistic Outpost Bluebird with VersaFine.  Adhere to cardstock for stability.


 
 

Re-ink the decorative border  and this time stamp onto found paper. Stamp the text stamp onto another piece of found paper. Re-ink and this time, stamp onto paper re-cycled from a cardboard box, stamping onto both sides. The reason I included this piece of paper, it caught my eye, curled up on my working area and I knew I had to use it … an insight into how I work! 
 

Apply various paints to corrugated cardboard. Adhere to canvas with burlap and scrap of rusted fabric. Thread jute string through button and adhere. Apply a flurry of Cosmic Shimmer Mica Flakes.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 


Create a collage with burlap, stamped elements, Prima bark butterfly with the addition of jute string, scrap of painted corrugated cardboard. Cut a leaf style motif from vintage doily. Layer this to the panel with the curl of stamped paper. Cut a leaf shape from scrap of prepared corrugated cardboard. Apply paint to leaf die-cut and adhere both inside the curl.
 

Until next week.


Wishes,

 
 
Lynne
