I started with a very neutral patterned paper and mounted it on corrugated cardboard. I distressed the edges of the paper once it was peeled away from the cardboard. I brushed some clear gesso over the paper. Once it was dried, I added texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Once it was dried, I sprayed the layout with water, then added the sprays Autumn Maple Crimson, Red Hot Poker Orange Ponderosa Olive and a splash of Cattail Copper Brown, and watched the colors bleed into one another until I got the blending that I wanted.
The vines were die cut and sprayed with Ponderosa Olive and a bit of Red Hot Poker Orange.
I love coloring the Art Basics stones with Lindy's spray. I just mixed the stones with Autumn Maple Crimson , Art Basics Soft gel and spread the mixture on my layout using a small spatula.
The Dusty Attic chipboard "Believe" was primed with some white gesso using a heavy coat, then sprayed with Autumn Maple Crimson.
This is closeup of the textured stenciling. I love how the modeling paste soaks up the color and it also settles on the edges giving it definition.
My photos were manipulated in Photoshop and I purposefully created the composites to match the colors of the Autumn Leaves Spray set. Sometimes it can be the other way around. But whatever inspires you to use Lindy's colors, just go with that inspiration. You wont be disappointed!!
