Autumn Day

Completed another challenge for anything but cute- this month's theme is An Autumn Day.  Now this is what we woke up to on Thanksgiving morning October 9
Yep thats a lot of snow now some of it has melted but there is still snow on the ground- and apparently there is more on the way.  Welcome to Northern Alberta Ladies.

This page is all about splatter splatter and more splatter.  I used orange, greens and pinks.

I started by layering pattern paper together for a background.

Next I tucked edges I cut with my silhouette into the paper layers.

I mixed poinsetta red gold magical with modeling paste, applied through a stencil along edges and jutted out onto main page.

Next i mixed autumn maple crimson with water and splattered onto page along texture.

I repeated steps with red hot poker orange, and rusty lantern lime until satisfied with the color combination.  Next sprinkle shabby white embossing enamel along edge.  Heat from bottom so it doesn't blow off the page.

Add photo clusters made with paper blocks, pre cut elements and paper texture.  Before I added the photo cluster I splattered black acrylic paint along edges.

Painted some chipboard pieces with antique white acrylic paint and glued onto layout.

Added color onto photo cluster with magicals.

Add some thread- I like how it has a organic feel.

Had a happy moment today when i opened Anything but Cute blog to see i received runner up for last months challenge- Friendship for this layout.  Thank you ladies.
