Hi there! Nathalie here to wrap up Fall week! We have had so much fun this week creating Fall projects using Vicki's Field Note collection, and now i want to show you one more idea on how to use a bit of mixed media to bring the Fall colors onto a page.
I was inspired by all the swirling leaves and feathers that i find on my daily walks to create this page. I pulled a Paige Evans -Geometric Feather- cut file to create the feathers in the background ( i might have made them a bit too large!). My idea to bring transluscency to the page was a bit hard; so, i decided to experiment with vellum and art crayons.
I used the stencil brush and a warm palette of art crayons to create the ombre effect on the feathers. Then used the vellum to back the feather cut outs, and then used the stencil brush to create the gold dipped effect at the tips of the feathers.
Since I put all that effort into the feathers, the background was kept fairly simple. Just a bit of blue art crayon/watercolor on the page, so that all the details will pop. I used a bit of foam adhesive to attach the feathers to the page, my idea was to create a little bunch of feathers hanging off the top of the page.
To embellish the page, i used a few flowers from the ephemera packs, but chose to use the same colors used to create the feathers to bring Autumn to some stamped leaves. These were layered behind the picture and feathers. A few more embellishments were also added to complete small clusters around the picture.
To complete this page, I used a combination of the puffy sticker words with some alphas from the All The Good Things collection, however I brought some acrylic gel and fine gold glitter from Vicki's Mixology collection to bring a bit extra shine to the page.
The following video will show you a most in depth look on how this page was put together, so sit back and enjoy:
