Fall is here!! Um WOW!

 
Hi friends!  It's been so long since I blogged... I almost forgot how to log in to my own blog!  So sorry about that long absence.  Life has gotten crazy and it just wasn't a priority!  I want to try to make it a priority with more posts.  Here is one for UmWowStudio with a project I created using their layered chipboard pieces.  I adore these so much and really need more!  Being on the DT, I plan on using more of these adorable sets!

 The Layered Leaves Chip is so perfect for all Fall projects!  I love the shape and the sizes you get in this pack.  Did I mention how much I love the thickness, durability and smell of these?  Yep, you heard me right... smell.  Like a cozy fire on a cold day... Sigh. LOVE it!
Layered Leaves 
I love the natural color of all the chipboard but for this project, I needed to cover it with color and primed the whole thing with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso first.
 Then, I added lots of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® in the Steampunk Set.  I also added some Banana and Mango too.  But mostly I made Gelatos® sprays and dripped pure color down the board.
 Love how these adorable leaves stack and create a fun dimensional embellishment to my projects!
 I added an UmWowStudio flair from the Vintage Flag set and glued "Fall" from the Alpha TWO set  to the flair.
 I colored some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Whipped Spackle with an Iced Coffee Gelato and applied it through the UmWowStudio Damask Mask.

 The Iced Coffee Gelato has a bit of shimmer to it by itself but I also sprayed some Iced Chai on there too for more sparkle!

 Adding more color to the leaves gave it a bit more drama!  With the Gesso, the colors stand out far better than just on the kraft colored paper.
