Autumnal Spread with Textured Mushrooms and Distress Crayons

Hi there, Susanne here! I’m sharing a mixed media art journal page using stamps from our Textured_Mushrooms, Autumn Leaves and Mix It Up 1 sets. I wanted to create an atmospheric spread to bring myself some autumnal feelings. I’m working in a handmade journal that has gelli prints as pages.

On this page I started with some collage pieces and then added some spots of white gesso with a scraper tool. After the gesso was dry I used Distress Crayons in orange and violet tones to bring in some more color. To frame my little scene I stamped some of the Autumn Leaves around the edges of the page. To make the spread more vibrant and energetic I splattered white and metallic acrylic ink onto the pages.

The mushrooms are stamped onto different gelli prints. I then cut out some of the heads and paper-pieced them onto a full mushroom. That gives you some very unique images to put not only on art journal pages, they are also great for ATCs, tags, scrapbook-pages or greeting cards. I drew a bottom with a black watercolor pencil onto the page so the mushrooms have something to sit on.

For the title I picked some words from our Mix A Sentiment stamp set. These were embossed in white on black cardstock.

I hope I could inspire you a little bit, thanks for stopping by today!

xx Susanne
