DV #235 Autumn Colours

Welcome to our challenge this time. We are sponsored by Bugaboo and our theme is Autumn Colours.

I have used one of their lovely digis called Puppygirlz for my project.

I started with the background. Well to be truthful I started with a cheat!!! This is a pebeo fantasy prisme and fantasy moon pour that my Daugther did and gifted to me. Can you see the hand of god that just appeared on it as it dried? Anyhow, I thought the colours were perfect for the challenge so I scanned it in and printed off a copy for the background of my Journal page!

I coloured my image with Polychromos pencils, and matted it onto some lovely orange cardstock. I cut the background with a very small white border to tone in with the white background of the image and sentiment and matted that onto the same orange.

The above shows the vibrancy of colour a bit better than the first picture, but that one shows the depth of the flowers that I stamped and die cut from burlap paper. I used toning brads for centres.

The sentiment I created on my pc and is a reflection of how I feel about my lovely little pooch who has kept me sane through this whole covid affair!.

I mounted the whole thing into my Dina Wakely journal with all it’s lovely textured pages as I thought it looked great on the burlap background and went with the burlap flowers.

I am entering this into:-
