Anything But Cute - Inspired By An Autumn Day

This is my 2nd post...for the Scrapy Land Challenge, click HERE.

{Scheduled Post} Happy Wednesday!! It's time for a new challenge at Anything But Cute!! The theme this month is An Autumn Day.


The sweet and amazing Autumn from sewpaperpaint is our fabulous hostess this month and what a fitting theme she's chosen :) Here's what she had to say about the theme:


I could not help but chose October as my month to hostess here at Anything But Cute. This month, we want to see your creations inspired by An Autumn Day. Anything goes mixed media with an fall color palette, or Autumnal elements. Be inspired by nature with the sights, smells, and sounds of this beautiful season. We cannot wait to see the amazing artwork you turn out!


For my card inspired by an Autumn day, I started out with watercolor paper and my Dylusions sprays.


I just started spraying, with the lightest colors first. Lemon Zest...


Pure Sunshine and Squeezed Orange...


Some Postbox Red. I just kept spraying until I had a mixture I was happy with. I don't have pictures of the rest of the process. I wasn't really sure where I was going with this at the time :)


I added texture paste through a The Crafter's Workshop Believe Script stencil. The birds in the top left corner are a Tim Holtz Remnant Rub.


The tree is a Frantic Stamper Medium Bare Ash die, cut in black sticky-back foam.


The leaves were all cut from the sprayed papers with Cheery Lynn Fall Leaves dies. I love the texture the swirls give to the leaves. Memory Box Grove Branches were added among the leaves, as was a Leane Creatief Pine Cone die.


The frame was made with a silicone die, air dry clay and crackle paint. Once it dried and cracked, DecoArt Raw Umber Antiquing Cream was rubbed into the cracks. The stamp is a Stampin Up stamp and you can't tell in the pic, but crackle glaze was added. Grateful is a My Creative Time die and the beautiful crinkle ribbon is from DL.ART.


I added some sisal for fall texture and inked all of the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Anything But Cute to see the amazing projects created by my talented design team sisters. Then link up your project inspired by an Autumn day. I can't wait to see what you create :)

MIND BLOWN! Die cutting sticky back foam?! What! How amazing and inventive. I cannot wait to try this. I love the tree and think you could swap it out as a coral die for summer, so beautiful! The layering here is spot on, especially the addition of your handmade frame. I have got to get to molding some things... Quite the inspiration and I am honored by your beautiful work with this theme. An autumn beauty for sure! Big hugs, Autumn

Sara Barker said...

Wow, Lisa! This is even more amazing with your close up photos! I am in love with your crisp stenciling over that bold inky background! Your leaves are so whimsical and layered beautifully with the twigs, pine cone and sisal. Using those sprayed panels backing the die cuts is genius, and that frame has my mouth hanging open! I have crackle envy right now! Big round of applause for your fabulous inspiration, my friend! Sending big hugs your way!

So beautiful Lisa!! I am just loving that background. Such an amazing rainbow of autumn colours you achieved with those sprays, and I adore the the stencil pattern and how it soaked up some subtle hues of the spray underneath!
