An Autumn Wave

Aloysius is happily waving at you through the tumbling Autumn leaves, I hope you are waving back!

I stamped the gorgeous Aloysius and then drew him an arm as he wanted to wave at you. I gave him some colour, and then fussy cut him.I was very careful not to nip him.

To make a small exploding canvas, I painted the inside back of the box canvas, I used Indigoblu paints in Hot Cocoa and Leather Corset and I also added some Penny dreadful luscious to give an Autumn gleam.

I Used Warm Tan To paint  the front of the canvas and when the paint was still wet 

I crumpled up some copy paper and pressed it onto the paint.It left  lovely texture from the creases.

I cut the middle section of the canvas into four diagonally.

I then created a background for Aloysious using the same texture technique as before.I repeated this process again on another sheet of card to create my leaves from.

I die cut numerous leaves from the  painted card and after crumpling them up, I added flitterglu and Chocolate Box megaflakes  to make them truly shine.

Aloysius made himself comfortable on the background card, and I added some leaves  around him.

Next I adhered each of the four flaps to the front of the frame and proceeded to decorate the frame with lots of leaves, small pine cones, and twigs.

I adhered the background to the back of the frame.

 A sentiment or message could be stamped onto card and then cut out and added onto the canvas. If you do not have leaf dies or punches you could draw and then cut out the leaves.

A Peep Into A Magical Land

Tread quietly... today we are peeping into a magical land... can you see the lovely horse and foal.Did you know that at midnight every night the fully grown horses start to magically grow a beautiful horn and turn into magnificent unicorns for the night. In this picture the mother is whispering to her child telling her all about the enchantment  she will enjoy when she is older !

If you would like to make an exploding  canvas you can find many and varied  videos on you tube to give you the basics. I used Lavinia Stamps and Die cuts to make this magical land.I watercoloured the images and canvas, and I used pearl stickles on the enchanted toadstool, and a signo white pen on the pink flowers.I also slotted  in some skeleton leaves to add more layers and depth.

Thank you so much for visitng today and taking a peep into this magical world!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges
