It is time to store summer decor and change to gold, yellow, oranges and warm reds...aahhhhh.
Every change of season I feel like I'm heading into my favourite! I like them all!
When the new challenge was posted at Art Impressions and it called for 'Cut Your Cards' I decided to indeed 'cut the (try-fold) card' and turn it into a small scene to hang on the wall.
I stamped each of the images onto a piece of cardstock and coloured it with water colour in bright fall colours.
Next I coloured a piece of cardstock with spray alcohol inks, cut a window for the scene and scored the fold lines to make a shallow shadow box for the stamped pieces to fit in and on to.
I inked lightly around the oval cutout
Next I adhered the cottage scene to the back of the box, while the boat scene was attached to a strip of cardstock to hold it suspended between the background and the front of the box.
Once the box was glued closed, all I had to do was add the third scene with the little fawn onto the front of the box and add a selection of punched leaves in fall colours as a finishing touch. At least these leaves will not need to be raked!
I like the depth created by the volume inside the little shadowbox.
Due to the dull grey (misty) day we had, I had to make do with artificial light for my pictures this time round...but I think it still looks warm and all autumny!
Thanks for dropping by. Do take a look at the Ai Challenge. There is still time to take part!
I used an Art Impressions Try-fold called 'Lake House' for my scene.
Next I want to see if I can turn this into a winter wonderland lake house...
I am also entering this for the September Colour Challenge over at Rubber Dance Art Stamps
