Back with another fun mixed media page for our MM technique calendar. September here in NE Indiana is usually when Autumn begins to show it's face so I thought it would be nice to incorporate some fall colors to this page.
I started off by taping down a stencil to my cardstock.
I then covered it with a layer of modeling paste...you of course could use gesso or any other medium you prefer.
I love this particular pattern. It's from Club Scrap and it looks like a vintage tin tile design.
For our next step - Autumn colors! I sponged on several different colors of Memento Ink.
Next I pulled out some metal foil rolls - foiling seems to be making a hot comeback right now. I used Duo adhesive which I dabbed on the raised areas with my finger tip and let it dry.
Once the adhesive was at the tacky stage I pressed copper and gold foil over the design. You'll notice it's not a solid covering - that is intentional. I wanted a more rustic weathered feel to get than tin tile feeling across.
Once I was satisfied with the foiling I used my finger to dab on Spiced Chai StazOn ink to the remaining exposed modeling paste.
I added a few stamped images (all Unity) with StazOn ink
and finished it off with my calendar, a bit of copper & gold thread and a few leaves.
And there you have it!
A bit of weathered elegance - perfect for Autumn!
