We have a new sponsor this month
CALICO CRAFT PARTS
and you will find their details and those for the challenge at the bottom of this post.
And so without further ado let's see what the Creative Guides have been making with those wonderful autumn colours.
We have had a wonderful Autumn here in the north with flowering shrub roses, grasses and rosehips gracing the garden with their fabulous colours. I tried to replicate these colours (and the fact that the wooden fence and shed need painting!) in a Calico Craft Parts Shadow Box. Do please join me over on my blog Live the Dream to see how this all came together and a step by step for the little background painting.
Autumn is my favourite time of year, with the stunning colour of the beautiful falling leaves and the time we celebrate the harvest. If you would like to see more, please visit my blog here.
For our October challenge I decided to make a mixed media canvas filled with autumn leaves in all the glorious colours of fall. I also wanted to include the touches of frost and ice that we often experience on cool October mornings here in Canada so used lots of metallic foils, embossing powders and mica sprays to represent that frosty component. I have some step out photos on my blog on how I created it, hope you can stop by for my how to.
Oh how I love the colors of Autumn with the lovely oranges, browns and greens with the golden leaves turning for the season. I hope you will stop by my blog HERE to see a little tutorial of how I made this home décor item.
How can you NOT be inspired!! All those wonderful autumnal colours and fabulous projects!
And now a little more about our challenge details.
Do visit again on Monday where we will have another Creative Guide will be sharing the Travel Bag contents with you in another Destinations Inspiration.
