We are all a little fragile......

Today I'm sharing another journal page using another of the gorgeous Donna Downey stamps, which is also my DT piece for the current challenge at eclectic Paperie which is Fall.

I started by brayering Vanilla Fresco Finish paint over a Kraft journal page. I then used Autumn Fire and Pumpkin Soup, but unfortunately didn't take a photo !

I then grabbed a sheet of Kraft card and brayered more Fresco Finish paint over it and then used the TCW Vineyard stencil with Potting Soil and Tree Branch Archival inks.

I then die cut lots of leaves from the card using a PaperArtsy die.

I stamped the main image using Potting Soil Archival ink, then masked it off and used Chutney Fresco Finish paint around the face to add definition. Keeping the mask in place I used the TCW Vineyard and North Star stencils and then the Dina Wakley Spinners stencil. I painted the lips of the image using Luminarte paint.

I used Cut 'n' Dry foam to dab Chutney Fresco Finish around all of the stencilled leaves. I also die cut some leaves from Crunchy paper, screwed them up and when I'd flattened them out I rubbed Potting Soil directly over them. The sentiment is from the Dina Wakley Scribbly Insects set and I've stamped it onto painted Kraft card.

Hope you've enjoyed today's page !
