Hi you all!
I have re-purposed another canvas, this time a 6x6" one. First of all I gave it some structure with embossing paste, and then threw lots of colour at it, and sprinkled it with fairy dust. I wanted to create Autumn colours to fit with the fallen leaves.
I used photos of my Great Grandmother Rachel, my Mum as a little girl, and me on my first day at school. I cut the photos with a round punch and fixed them behind some TH fragments. I painted round the edge with some gold paste from Viva. The tree has been die-cut from cardboard, gessoed and distressed. I used a piece of a broken chain to link the photos. The leaves were cut with a Sizzix die. I wanted to dip them into molten Utee, with clear and gold mixed. I found a bag with some bits of what I thought was clear Utee in it, and mixed it in the melting pot with the gold. It smelled rather strange, and then I realised I had mixed friendly plastic with Utee. This made a rather sticky mixture, which I would not recommend, but I was still able to dip the leaves. I stamped over them with a small leaf while they were still warm. But I do like the way they turned out!
I am linking to Simon's Monday Challenge, die cuts.
Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
