Autumn Mixed Media Card by Tracey Sabella

Hi everyone. It's Tracey here to share a card I've created featuring one of Leaky Shed Studio's gorgeous new release chipboard pieces, the Autumn Leaf Crown along with a classic Victorian Oval Frame.

One of our daughter-in-law's, favorite colors is purple, which pairs beautifully with autumn oranges, golds, and yellows.

Tips and Techniques
To paint the Autumn Leaf Crown, I watered down some gold metallic paint and brushed it across the bare chipboard. I wanted just a gold shimmer, rather than a heavy metallic look. Once dry, I brushed orange Twinkling H20's randomly across the leaves, and heat set. These paints are no longer available in stores, but you could also mix up any watercolor paint and mix with mica for shimmer or even brush on a sparkling mist.

The Victorian Oval Frame is painted black, then lightly brushed with gold metallic paint. 

The mixed media background was applied to a piece of white mixed media paper brushed with clear gesso. I've stamped and misted using stencils to create the color and design. I randomly applied gel medium and sprinkled with microbeads and chunky glass glitter. 

The rose is edged with Prima's new Art Sugar super fine glitter, and I misted the natural dried phalaris grass to color it a golden yellow.

One final shot. You can really see here how the colors vary on the chipboard giving the feel of autumn leaves.
