October Challenge - Falling For Autumn Mood Board

 Dana is hosting the October Mood Board Challenge at Berry71Bleu (click here). This time of year is about celebrating the breathtaking array of colors and textures and the sense of change and anticipation that is evident all around us. We want to see how you are falling for Autumn!
 --Mood Board from Pocketful of Dreams--
I decided to create a mixed media project inspired by the above autumn colors and textures!  I had an "Autumn Fairy" in mind.  I wanted her to look exotic and beautiful.  I envisioned her sash blowing in the wind. A head piece full of Autumn leaves and rich colors detailing her dress.
I added some digi leaves to her head piece provided by

Jellypark Stamps click here! This month's Design Team sponsor.

Here is the full photo of the completed project.
I added the little journaling to her flowing sash that reads "Believe in Magic" from 7 Dots Studio "Love is in the Air" Collection click here.
Below shows a better view of the scroll chipboard from Creative Embellishments.
I used colored pencils on the digital leaves and I heat embossed the chipboard.  I then added some paints.
Here is a collage showing how I started with the rough sketch on a 12x12 scrapbook paper.
and lastly I will be adding her to my Facebook cover page.  I did some photoshop on her using PicMonkey...

From that moment, I became totally amazed and thrilled by all the beautiful papers and decorations in the art of scrapbooking. After some time as a captivated scrapper, I got curious to create my own patterns. I have always had a devotion for color and form. I had access to great printing facility, as I worked at a printers office. Since 2007, I have been blessed to be able to work with my great passion - to design and create colored coordinated paper.
