This Fall themed project was made by cutting down a 12×12 French Letters Cardboard into 6×6′ size.

Let us take you through how it was made:


Step 1

After cutting you cardboard to size prime it with a cote of clear gesso and then add a piece of your favorite Architextures™ base – on this one we used the Short Base – Doilies. This will crate the texture you are looking for to avoid the cardboard to feel to flat. We also teared pieces from the sides of the cardboard for extra texture.

Step 2

Add a cote of white gesso over your Architextures™ base. This will make your mists pop even more. Start layering your favorite Tattered Angels Mists – we used fall colors to fit the season. Blend with water if needed before you dry with a heating tool.

Step 3

Add rubons or stamps to add interest to the background. We used Architextures™ Parchment Rub-Ons – Inspire. Then use you favorite type of embellishment – we used a piece of chipboard from Scrap FX that we painted with a layer of white gesso then two layers with High Impact Paint. To finish off your project add even more of your favourite embellishment – we used flowers & a cool piece from the Architextures™ Trinkets – Ink Pens. Sentiment cut from the Parchment Rub-Ons packing.
