Good morning, Marilyn here. Today, I have a neat little page I created for your viewing pleasure. This time of year reminds me of falling leaves, acorns, and cardinals. The time when the heat of summer leaves but just before the cold of winter arrives.
First, I covered an extra chipboard page I had from a Basically Bare Tilly’s Tabs album with a piece of Bella Blvd Homey paper (the backside), then followed with a house from the Basically Bare Happy Little Houses set (which I’m already in love with!). To get the brick effect I wanted, I ran a piece of acrylic through a TH checkerboard texture fade and then inked it up with alcohol ink in Cranberry. Glossy Accents was the perfect clear glue since the acrylic is still fairly transparent. I left the chipboard unpainted underneath the acrylic which adds to the brick effect.
Wanting to make a cardinal, I grabbed one of my Basically Bare chipboard Birds and gave it a good spraying with Dylusions Postbox Red mist. I left it soaking in the excess mist until it air dried. I’ve learned that you will sometimes have a “fade-out” of color if you try hurrying the drying along with a heat gun.
Next I glued my bird onto a wood branch, adding foam leaves and a few acorns from my backyard. The “fall” is from the Bella Blvd Thankful sticker sheet.
Hope you enjoyed my little project. Until later……Smiles~
