Well Autumn is in full swing and soon the leaves will display their brilliant colorful foliage to marvel and delight us.
Moms are happy that school is back in session freeing up a moment or two to sit at the craft table and let those creative juices flow!
This is my dad in his younger days. I really didn't want to adhere anything to the picture so the top frame is put in place with just a couple of gel dots. This is why you see the shadow on the picture.
7Dots Studio's challenge this month is all about Steampunk.
This month we would like to encourage you to create any Steampunk project. According to Wikipedia: “Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.”
Gears and old time technology are the theme in my layout. The colors I incorporated give it a sci fi feel I think.
I used 7 dots Studio-Yuletide collection-Sugar Plum
Domestic Goddess 6x12 Alpha Stickers
Lost and Found 6x12 Word Stickers
For this layout I first applied my mists beginning with the blues one on top of the other blending them as they dried. Next I came back with my yellow, copper and white making bold splashes ending with more petite splashes in blues. This was followed by randomly applying orange modeling paste with a script mask.
Here you can see close ups of some of the many stamps I used in creating my background.
The feel of Autumn abounds in this layout.
