Please welcome October’s sets combined by Studio Calico – ‚The Underground‚ presale for subscribbers is here!!! I could write a lot about these kits as always but I think that posting the projects is a better idea. You may think that I make a lot simmilar pages but I decided at the begining of my work that I want to stay in an autumn mood in all of them. Mainly – these are not my colours, not even the shades are my favourite ones, but… I really love fall so this month’s digitals, Marcy’s cut files and printables gave me a whole bunch of possibilities to create something nice. I would like to share them with you today.
Starting with [Main Kit Only] projects. On this layout I used a digital template designed by Paige Evans to create a stitching stencil. I combined few papers in palette from the photo (yep, the old one with ‚hair’, but I love it and I think the mood of a ‚gold fall’ here is just perfect), and I used brand new, exclusive and amazing silkscreen from the main ‚Underground’ and exclusive GOLD acrylic Color Theory paint to make this print! To be true – these gold shades look fabulous in reality, I can’t make the perfect photo to show you the real effect, what a loss…
This is a perfect project to show how you can mix various media. I used here: neocolors, acrylics, watercolours, mists, sprinklers, ecolines and peerless watercolours… oh and white uni-ball pen! ha! everything on a gesso base – one of my favourites. You can also find here lots of layers – diffirent patterned papers from the main kit, exclusive vellum with metallic, floral print. I was palying with these cute cut file leaves designed by Marcy Penner and some of her printables as well. Oh, and I embossed the stamp on the photo! Oh my, I had no idea that I made so many things out there! And of course the photo – I know, I know – this is soooooo cute 🙂 It would be great if he could be such lovely forever!
This is the first project where I mixed the main ‚Underground’ kit with it’s add-ons: Piccadilly, Notting Hill and King’s Cross. I was palying with this set of exclusive, fancy wood veneer triangles and stamps! I have to admit that a bundle of Color Theory ink pads was never such helpful before! I mixed wooden brown with jade green and navy shades and I added a pop of gold to finished the effect of perfect autumn palette here.
Once again I used the ‚make magic’ silkscreen from the main kit to create a print. Layers, mix of pattern papers and vellum, some gold pops and stamping leaves – all of these elements created a nice, fallish page. Hope you feel the same smell of autumn in the air as I 🙂 it was a nice time spend with the ‚Underground’ kits, now it’s your turn guys!
