Hello there! Its my posting day over at Countryview Challenges today and I have created another piece in autumnal hues - its a box picture including stamps from scrapcosy at paperartsy.
The lovely fella featured in the photo is my gorgeous and dear departed husband Shaun. It was taken in Australia back in 2003 when life was very different from now! Glorious memories! I have used the main title 'forever autumn' in reference to the song.... and the thoughts and theories comes in largely because Shaun was a very clever man - a professor of physics who had a lot of thoughts and theories!
To make my piece I took the following steps - I started with a natural wood frame and painted it using pheasant bronze paint from indigo blu.
Next I stamped the scrapcosy stamps and coloured in distress inks...
The next step was to creat the main background which I did using a tim mini stencil and distress inks.
Finally I assembled the piece - keeping adding layers and height since the frame allowed this.
I love that little snail - too cute!
I cut the letters using a sizzix tim holtz alphabet die and cut the letters from claritystamp papers.
I do hope you can join us in our challenge over at Countryview challenges which you will find here!
