Hello,today I am here to share with you a couple LO’s I did. The first on is a photo of me,in my garden taken in the fall. It amazes me how my garden changes,with the colors throughout, our very short growing season!! Speaking of that, last night it was -25 cel,& we still have 2 feet of snow!!!Once the snow goes,& we get warmer weather my garden comes alive! I just posted a LO, on my last post,of what my garden looks like, in the Spring,using the Fika Collection, & now on this LO,I am using the Walking in the Forest Collection….



From the Walking in the Forest Collection I used:Autumn in the Air,Autumn in the Air-BS,knitted sweater,mountain ash_BS,The colors of Fall-BS & Orchestra of Nature. The chipboard used is from Dusty Attic. Here are some closeups of detail….


I did distressed,hand stitched layers & some punch work. I inked all the edges of the paper with Vintage photo distress stain. I cut out the leaves & mushrooms,then applied rock candy crackle & inked the edges….


On all the chipboard I used,caramel,sunset orange,ginger & pesto adirondack ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger) alcohol ink. I then applied rock candy crackle,& once that dried I used a brush & applied pinecone TA glimmermist.


A rolled corner,these blooms are prima,the gold ones are from the sunrise,sunset collection…


I did some stencil work,using Crafters Workshop Art is 6×6…the red flower is BoBunny…


I sprinkled on some micro beads, while the crackle was still wet….


Another BoBunny flower with Prima gold roses…


Here is another LO I did using the Vintage Spring Basics Collection. I used Nadia’s Sketch for Dusty Attic on both of these LO’s……



From the Vintage Spring Basics I used: 8th of April_BS,9th of April-BS,10th of April-BS,9th of April,11th of April-BS & some of the BS’s of the labels.

Here are some closeups of detail…


Shows some distressed,stitched layers,punch work & stencil work…


I left lots of the chipboard raw, but not really. I inked the edges,applied rock candy crackle & rock candy distress stickles…


I used MS texture effects on the buds,wordlet & stencil work. Once that dried I rubbed in some lavender lace liquid pearls,using my finger…


The flowers are Prima,some of them are old ones that I had….



Over layering 2 pieces of chipboard….


Rock candy stickles & lavender lace liquid pearls on the butterfly..Thank you so much for taking the time to look….Rachelle
