Autumn colors - Mixed Media Canvas

Hello Everyone,
New month and new challenge at Artistic stamper Creative Team blog. We have 'Autumn colors' theme, so go ahead and make anything you like with Autumn colors, but you have to use at least one Rubber stamp in your creation to be eligible for prize draw.
I've created mixed media canvas as an inspiration for Artistic stamper September challenge.

Artistic stamper has beautiful collection of Autumn Leaves stamps designed by Katy Leitch. 

To start with, I attached  Tim Holtz tissue wrap paper on my canvas. Applied gesso, and dried it completely. I dabbed Mowed lawn and Mustard seed distress paints randomly, spritzed water and  allowed the color to spread and again heat set it. I created circle texture with stencil and Wendy Vecchi embossing paste.

I colored gauze with distress paints - vintage photo, mowed lawn, barn door. Stamped leaves with Katy Leitch designed leaves stamp set and Ranger Archival inks . Fussy cut them. Cute little bird house is from Prima. I also added small  brown sugar dots.

Birdies are from Artistic stamper - Birds of feather.

Lastly added the sentiment from Leaves size A5 which suits perfectly for the Autumn theme.

Hope you liked my inspiration, 
Waiting to see what you come up with your stamps and autumn colors, don't forget to link your creation at Artistic stamper creative team blog
