The Craft Room Challenge

It’s all about leaves and/or trees this time round over at The Craft Room and I really wanted to do something other than a tag or a card.

I have an art journal of sorts, I use it to play with new products and techniques more than anything else.  I decided to have a play with my new Pan Pastels and stencils cut on my Cameo, using shapes purchased from the Silhouette Store.


The background was one I had made some time ago.  I used gesso, followed by distress inks sprayed onto plastic wrap, flipped onto the page, crumpled and smooshed and left to dry.  I had meant to add a pearl spray as well but in my excitement at the time, I completely forgot, lol.

I am reasonably happy with it but it doesn’t really float my boat – too flat maybe? 

Thanks for popping in to take a look.  I really do appreciate you taking the time to comment.  It makes my day.

Cheers, Esther   xoxo

  2. Very Autumnal, which as you are moving into spring is a bit surprising, could that be what you feel only OK about it? I think it is great fun and very clever. Thank you for joining us again at Craft-Room Challenge XOXO Zoe
