The Time of Mellow Fruitfulness

On Woodware Witterings this week we have a theme of Mellow Fruitfulness. At this time of year the birds all seem to be busy, which is what I was thinking about when I started off on this project, so I got out the birds…


I have finished up with an A4 journal page. I couldn’t find my journal so I have used the Woodware Mixed Media card which I will attach to my journal.


I have used my Dylusions paint, in Tangerine Dream and Postbox Red. I used the ColorBox Blending tool and then wiped it over with a Woodware Wipe to blend it all really well.


Then I stenciled on the blended page


I just started off with the same colours as the page, so that it is tone on tone.


Then I added some green, I just left the stencil messy so that the green mixed with the red ink and it gave me a darker green than the paint that I had Cut Grass. Dylusions have new soft greens that are really lovely, but I don’t have them yet!


I have used the Mixed Media Artist Nathalie Kalbach’s  3 Piece Bird Set. The stencil is part of the set. I have inked the stamp with Pomegranate Seed Dylusions Paint.


The White Linen bird is the foam stamp from the set.


I have used Jane’s Dorothy Clear Magic Stamp for the sun with Lemon Zest paint, and used my white Sakura Gelly Roll to out line the birds. I then decided that I didn’t like it!


So I stamped another bird this time in the Tangerine paint.


The words are stamped in white linen paint they come from two of the Dylusions stamp sets Laugh ’til You Leak and Don’t Hold Back.


I rather like my autumnal page, I hope that you like it too.

Thanks for visiting and don’t forget to check what the rest of the team come up with on Woodware Witterings.
