Autumnal Mushrooms

I thought I would have another spread for Autumn/Fall just to help inspire a little as we don't seem to have many people joining in with the Monthly challenge. This makes me a little sad :0( so I do hope to see more of you joining in. I have reached amazing 60 followers and I want to thank you all for joining in leaving comments and just being there. However I would love to see more of you joining in the challenge I hope this spread inspires you a little.

This started off as just a light coloured spray of colour wash to get rid of the blank space, then I pulled out a stencil and sprayed even more colour wash over that (opening another page reversing the stencil and brayered over it, so the colour wasn't wasted and also another background is already begun for next time ;0) (how cool?) Then to give depth I added the heading and reused some letters to draw round so I could give the appearance that the letters were further back (you can see this clearer in the top photo) Some rub ons and then some fabby stamps from Stampotique (Jo Capper-Sandon) I placed my journaling around the shapes of the mushrooms and that was that. What do you think? Have I convinced you to have a go at the monthly challenge yet? there is still time to play around, Hope to see you back soon. Love Dawn xx
