Summer's flurry of green is over


This is my make for the DT team of Outlawz


November 28th - December 11th

Sunday - Songs and Rhymes 

 For the month of  our sponsor is: Makenna Kroulik

The prize will be the two images used by the team

 Note:  The theme doesn’t have to be taken literally.  You may use any word or phrase out of it for your project.

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:

  Summer's flurry
      Of green is over,
      Apples are ripe,
      Mown is clover.
Colors, ablaze
      On mountains, burn,
      Smolder, and flame
      As the seasons turn.
Harvest moon
      Comes up at dusk,
      Gold as a pumpkin
      Or corn in the husk...

~Harry Behn (1898–1973), "Autumn," The Golden Hive, 1966


 

I have made a simple card using a kraft card base matted with the printed image trimmed to size. I painted this with shimmery water colours. I added vintage photo Distress Ink around this and faux stitching using a black pen. I did the same around the sentiment (which was from Oddball Art Co)

Hope you will join in the challenge...

Gecko Galz Monthly Image Challenge

 

I have just been playing with the freebie image that comes with

the Gecko Galz monthly image challenge

In one of my journals, I  had a 'use-up' page to which I added extra paint.


I then added white gesso through a stencil and scribble round the edges with a pen.

I printed the image twice leaving one whole and fussy cutting the other.

I added vintage photo Distress Ink around the edges.

I then added the doodled and distressed wings. Finally I added the sentiment. 

Happy Crafting!
