It's already Thursday and the weekend feeling has begun to knock on my shoulder. Happy happy feeling!
Strolling in Meg's Garden of many delights also makes me very happy. Meg has recently released a new paper collection called the Spring Paisley Collection. For us in the northern hemisphere, the colours of maroon, dusty pink and muted green are autumnal.
So what better than actually create a page with that seasonal feeling to it.
I made a mixed media page with strong vibrant colours, very unusual for me but I really like the colour combinations. Surprise, surprise! I simply called it "Autumn".
I used a square doily from the shop both as mask with modelling paste and with mists to create the background.
I then put the doily on my page although I cut out the centre and only used the "frame". Under it I have layered square bits of papers from the collection together with an orange paper from My Mind's Eye. Fussy cut tendrils also from one of the new papers.
As finishing touches I randomly smeared acrylic paint in gold over the whole page and glued down gold micro beads onto the misted doily. Yup, still enjoying my gold acrylic paint.
The second page that I made with papers from Meg's Garden is a romantic and soft one. The young beautiful lady in the photo is Alex, daughter of Agnieszka aka Bellaidea.
The red paper at the very bottom is Glitz and the soft cream and teal one on top is KaiserCraft. The rest are from Meg's Garden.
The third and last page that I am sharing with you was made back in April and has never been posted anywhere. Seems like aeons ago. Here is my "Time" just for fun and comparison. Very clean and not a smidge of any kind of mixed media on it. Feels strange to see an all "paper" page.
Have always loved fussy cutting and still do.
And before I say bye for now, I'll give you a sneak of the next CSI case file;
