Yes Autumn is really here , and this new challenge 
over at That`s Crafty Challenge Blog , asks for your creations
about  FOREVER AUTUMN , isen`t it a lovely titel !!

My own contribution started onto a Rounded  corners panel , which I 
first sprayed with a very thinned Infusion in Terracotta ,left to dry and oversprayed
with Sleigh Blue, also thinned a lot.

After dried I dabbed with Distress Oxides  : Vintage Photo with a little 
Iced Spruce on top here and there . The beautiful Dinky Stencil Spider Web was used in the
upper left corner , using Iced Spruce ,and in right corner I added a thin layer of 
Distress Crackle paint ,Clear Rock Candy , and left to dry .

Embellishments were painted with the lovely new Multi Surface Paint ,
in Green - Red- Chestnut Brown and yellow, to try capture the
wonderful autumn tones.

The tall flower also had a coat of the Crackle paint and so did the butterfly and one of the toadstools .

After it had all dried I smeared Distress Ink Walnut stain onto the crackled places, and wiped off the extra ink .

I felt something was missing in the lover part of the panel and used
another great Dinky Stencil : Harlequin , also with the Iced Spruce.
Not too easy to see here , sorry !!

Then all the Embellishments were adhered ,onto scraps of lace
some dyed with the Infusions , -- the Butterfly and toadstools got copper thread 
details ,to highlight a bit , and tiny cones from the wood were added too.
If you want to see details, just click the pictures :-)

Thank you if you followed me to here, dear friends ,

You know there is a gift waiting for you, if you take part in the
 so go ahead and create something : FOREVER AUTUMN . - ,and read
the rules over there  :-)

And see all my teamies amazing samples, too !!

Have a wonderful weekend , all

I love that title - Forever Autumn even though it is hard to embrace Autumn here while we are surrounded by the sights and smells of Spring.
The materials all of infusions, paints, oxides and inks have been used so masterfully to achieve such a beautiful result dear friend.
I love the use of the copper wire also for the butterfly and the toadstools.
Have a beautiful weekend dear friend and sending you lots of love and hugs,
