Hello ladies, autumn is here....!

I wanted to try out my new Pan Pastels and had seen this video by France Papillon, where she used them as a resist. So here's my take. After gessoing the page I added letters with a stencil and texture paste. I then coloured the entire page with green and yellow Pan Pastel, after which I painted the paige with a green acrylic paint. Before that was completely dry, I wiped with a baby wipe and where I wiped the PP colours reappeared. Then I took some Distress Paints which I added just here and there, and sprayed water on them in order to let them work their magic and drip (love drippage).
I stamped the spider directly on the page but all the other figures were stamped on DCP paper and coloured with Copics. The forest 'soil' was made with some washi tape which I glues down with matte gel medium.
The cats have eyes made with a tiny drop of Glossy Accents. The autumn leaves I bought ages ago for next to nothing, and I have loads left.
Now this little fellow is my latest Stampotique stamp and I think he is so adorable, in a quirky sort of way LOL!
 Love the colours of this spread and love the way it turned out. I sure hope you like it too. Hugs Frea

  1. Ha zussie! Heb je layout ook al meerder keren op FB voorbij zien komen natuurlijk (steek dat maar weer op FB hahaha). Erg mooi issie, die resist met de pan pastel moet je me nog maar es in het echt laten zien. Dat zie je hier erg moeilijk, waarschijnlijk ook omdat zowel de panpastel als de verf veel groen was?? Maar goed, ik ben daar natuuuuuurlijk erg nieuwsgierig naar hihi
    Wilde vanavond VD gaan kijken, Kevin was hele avond weg.... Wat denk je?? Heeft ie 1 dvd (natuuuuurlijk precies die ik moest kijken) verkeerd gebrand: Staat aflevering 10-11-12 op van "Once upon a time" ipv de VD. Nee he?! Heb behoorlijk gevloekt kan ik je zeggen.... Maar ja, nu maar rondje bloggen dus :)

    XXX je zus

  4. I love your art journal page. The background is great -- the green and the reddish color (which looks like blood smeared on a wall or something).

  5. WoW - that is brilliant. I LUV the effect with the pastels and the textured letters. Fabulous idea the way the flap opens. You have used some of my favourite images too. :-D A wonderful piece :-D
