13 days late..

Toad & MagicI was mucking about in my journal last month.  I used Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paints in autumny colours with Neil Walker’s tangled stencil just randomly sponging paints and moving the stencil round.

I adored the background and immediately thought of crunchy autumn leaves.  Added a bit of rich oak paint to clear texture paste and put it through my  favourite stencil from TCP to give some linear lines contrast to the tangled stencil.  I used the same colours of paint and the tangled stencil on white paper (the super smooth from TCP, my go to paper for everything) and then die cut some leaves.  I also used the line stencil with rich oak to suggest veins, but that was less successful.  They were quite bright compared to the paint on the black pages so I used some crackle paste and raw umber antiquing cream to blend them into the background more.  Then I used some Sue Wilson dies on the shimmer paint/tangled stencil white paper and black card to make a place for the verse.
