Happy Fall Equinox
Back to playing with collage techniques. The theme for this month's lottery over at PAO is Fall, so I thought I'd make a fall themed collage. I started with scrap paper in fall colors and then added paint around the seams. A little gesso to soften things up and then more paint with stencils. Got my chalk inks out and added texture stamps, then a die cut clock and birds nest and a nice fall quote. Then I stamped the birds leaving for the winter with archival ink. I made some pinecones with the TH pinecone die (LOVE IT) and added them along with some fall leaves. A little more paint and ink around the new glued on items. Finally, added some Distress Stain dots with picket fence.
