September Post by Annie Carignan

"Adore You Today"

Hello again everyone!
 How time flies !! September is almost over can you believe it?
 Here in Quebec,  Fall is such a beautiful season with the trees changing colours,
 colder weather, apple picking, Fall and Halloween decorations everywhere, I love it!!
This month, I am presenting to you three  really different projects.  Here is the first one 
with  my son in an apple tree. 

On the two words, I also used Gesso and a colour spray.  
When all was dry, I used a stamp  to create texture.

On the apples, I started with a coat of Gesso, then I used different  colours of
 Gelatos to recreate real apples & again finished off with some stamping.

2 Crafty products  used were :
Adore You [wordadoreyou]
Today - Loopy Font[wordtodayloo]


For the doily border and the word Cherish, I simply applied a gold spray with a paintbrush.

On the Ornate Buckles and on the word Forever, I used my watersoluble ink pencils
 directly on the chipboard to create a "jeans" effect.

2Crafty chipboards used were :
Forever : Friendship Mini Word Pack[car048]
Cherish Loopy Font [wordcherishl]
Doily Border 
Ornate Buckles [m00423]

"Forever Canvas"

For my last project, I made an 8x10 canvas.  I used more feminine colours for this one !


2Crafty chipboard used  :
Fencing Wire Panel 
Soft Feather Set [m00465]
Heart Silhouettes [m00476]
Forever - Loopy Font 

[word foreverl]

All chipboards were first coated with Gesso.  I used Gelatos for all of them and with 
markers for some shading.  On the hearts and the feather I used a stamp to create 
texture.  On the word Forever, I sprayed some black and put Glossy Accents for a shiny finish.

I hope you will be inspired and create beautiful things!
  Chipboards are so fun to work with and the possibilities are endless!
