Happy Fall

Hello Crafty Friends,

It's Fall, my favorite time of the year.  Today I have an Art Journal page that celebrates Fall and showcases some of Die-Versions' Fall theme dies.

On this art journal page I used the several die cuts of the Whisper Northern Maple die, which is one of my favorite leaf dies.  One die cut of the Whisper Pattern Pumpkin die and one die cut the Whisper Witch Hat die, which I'm currently obsessed about and haven't stop creating w/it since I got it :)

I started with my background... first, I Gesso'ed the two pages and once they dried I used shades of purple and blue Gelatos to create my Fall sky.  Next I printed two pumpkins I found on goggle, they were free kids coloring pages.  I printed them on water color paper and using Distress Inks in oranges, yellows, browns and green I painted them.  I stamped my cat on water color paper and used black Distress Ink to color him.  He reminds me of my Bear, who's very curious :)   Here's a photo of him

Next I added my die cuts... the Witch Hat, which I backed on green card stock went on the cat.  The Northern Maples I spend around the page.  I even die cut a few of the Northern Maples from velum, for a "ghostly" look :)  My final touch was to add the word art, but honestly, I'm not happy with it.  It's too bright and white.  I have to tone it down a bit or remove it and stamp the words directly onto my page.  What do you think?

Here are a few close ups of this project:
