Fall is when nature turns to GOLD - TGF Blush Bonnie - Mini Layout Collection #2

Hello Everyone,
     Finally, I finished my Mini Layout Collection #2. Fall just started last week and although I'm a bit late but still better than never. I  Love Autumn, it means Christmas is around the corner and here's what I created, I used The Greeting Farm - Blush Bonnie. You can find this beautiful stamp here:

     I did a lot of thinking on how am I gonna create this FALL THEME. I started with my Inkadinkado stamp Fall leaves, stamped it on my Ivory cardstock and  inked it up with my favorite Distress inks and experiment a bit on how I'm going to achieved the color for FALL and bwalah! I'm happy with the color I created. I made a video on how I created these colors if you're interested.

    After that I started coloring Blush Bonnie and I wanted her hair to be black. I used my Copic markers to color her hair and skin and I paper pieced her dress with My Mind Eye's paper Totally Girl. Then I used my Prima Scripted Stamp not sure about the name of the stamp =(  and stamped it to my Ivory cardstock. The ink I used was Pumice stone by Distress Ink. Then I was just gonna adhere Blush Bonnie on to that cardstock but I was like there's something missing and I started ripping that paper into little strips and I thought of the basket and I started weaving the papers and used my distress ink to make it look worn out. So that's how I came up with this background for Blush Bonnie and then everything fall into place. I used the sentiment that I got from Joann's for a dollar. Then I added glossy accent on the name GOLD and put some gold glitters all over the GOLD name. Then I embellished it with Recollection flowers and also I added gold beads. I used my sewing machine to stitched all the edges of the cardstock, I inked all the edges first with my distress ink and then sewed with my machine. Then that's how I created this beautiful Mini layout, hope you guys like it as much as i do. Hugs, Jas

 At first I was thinking on how I can make it look like she's laying down on the background weave that I made and like the leaves are falling everywhere. I'm not sure if I made it look like that, but would love to hear your comment.

Here are the materials that I used in this project:
Sewing machine
Clear stamps (TGF Blush Bonnie, Inkadinkado, Prima, Joann's)
Gold beads
Copic markers
Memento Ink
Distressing tool

Have a nice weekend, hugs Jas.
