More mixed media October challenge: optional orange

This is my design creation for More mixed media October challenge, using orange. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team and we hope to see your mixed media entries - anything mixed media, it's an option to use orange.

I decorated a canvas, using spectrum noir aqua tints ink, white gesso, paper napkin, Papermania urban stamps bird print, Tattered angels rockin' renaissance textures, stampers anonymous leaf stamp, stazon jet black and craft leaves from The Works.

I really enjoyed blending the inks, dabbing, gesso-ing ...and I have coloured fingers to prove it - lol! I was going to add an autumn quote, but in the end decided to leave it as it is.

  13. What a lovely Autumnal canvas Hazel. I really like how you've coloured the background and then stamped the leaves in black. There's nothing like getting a little messy with the paint is there? It's like letting loose your inner child :). I think you've used a great choice of stamps and I like the addition of the craft leaves to give a little dimension. Thank you for joining us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. Sandra X
