I'm so thankful for all of the wonderful blessings that God has given me, from my family to this amazing creative journey I started a year and a half ago and of course all of you.  So for today's project, I created a 10x10 mixed media canvas to add to my home's fall decor.


I knew that I wanted to use rich colors and texture so I started by using the molding paste debossing technique that I shared in this video: Technique Tuesday.  I stamped the molding paste with the following stamps: Writing Cling Stamp, Text Cling Stamps and Fancy Leaf.


I painted the canvas with Golden fluid acrylic paints in raw sienna and burnt umber.  The debossing technique gives the paint areas to puddle creating gorgeous texture and depth.


The final layer of my background is a piece of muslin fabric.  Muslin is a really great fabric for stamping because it has a tight grain so you're able to get a clean impression.  I stamped my fabric with the fancy leaf in the Mini Thanks Cling Stamp set and then colored them in with Distress Markers and Dylusions inks.


Next I moved onto creating this beautiful flower.


I cut the flower using the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Die and cut two sets.  I stamped the individual flowers with the Music cling stamp.


Then I flipped them over and sprayed them with Dylusions and Lindy's Spray Ink.


With the flower assembled, I dug into my clip art and found these two beautiful images.  The pumpkin is from the Sept NC kit and can be found of the Fall Clip Art sheet.  The beautiful vintage women is from the June NC kit and is on the Summer clip art sheet.  I stamped "very thankful" on a strip of muslin.


I used a scrap piece of iron for the base of the flower, inking it with red paint to tie into the flowers in my vintage lady's hair.


I dusted the edges with more red paint to create visual balance and highlight all the beautiful debossed texture.


To finish off the right edge, I added a strip of crotchet ribbon.


The little finishing touches I added include: ribbon leaves, small inked roses, a small heart and metal leaf bobby pin.

Thank you so much for joining me today, I hope you've enjoyed my post.   If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me or PM me on Facebook.  Okay, now it's time to head on over to Carrie's Blog!!
