Marilyn's October Creations

Hello everyone!!  
Today I have  two layouts and a canvas to share with you.

"Good Day"

  My first page is inspired in Fall.  Here in NC (northern hemisphere) everything 
is turning in yellow, orange & burgundy colors, it looks amazing!

In this layout I have use  the pretty Autumn leaves chippies.   My tittle is the new 

chipboard Line Words- Happiness Borders and in the top of my page I added the  
Corner Annalise.  I started to work my chippies with a coat of gesso, then I 
applied two coats of Maya Mist with a brush.

To enhance my tittle and the top swirl I traced both chippies to create a 
shadow around them with Tim Holtz distress marker in black color.

I gave different tones of color with distress ink to the leaves.

I used Maja Design papers and Tresor de Luxe lace on my page.

My second project is a home decor piece. Ever since I saw the Bird on a Wire chipboard
 I knew  that I wanted to create something special with it.  It is a 7" x 14" canvas
 that I applied different mediums techniques for an aged look.  For this project
I worked my chippies with Chalkboard paints except the  Avery Vines that I
 painted with green acrylic paint and then I applied matte gel medium with
 art sugar for a cool effect.  

 To the Daisy flowers I applied a coat of Heavy gesso and next a coat of Chalkboard paint by Prima.

My third project is a layout that I created using the Leafy Rounds, ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars and the Friendship Mini Word Pack.  I only applied gesso to my chippies on this page, so easy!

 I cut the Leafy Round chipboard in pieces and after I gave it a coat of gesso,
 I applied  acrylic paint in green color.

 The tiny hearts give a lovely touch to my page and the title is from Friendship Mini Word pack.
