better

Hello everyone,

Again only just in time for the 19th Q&L challenge, where the words were better and/or patience, to be used in a quote or lyric (for full details and everyone else's amazing entries click here)

The Gelli Arts blog also has an awesome give away (more details here) for which you need to post a halloween or fall themed artwork on there FB, so I combined the two in one.

I started by gluing 3 pieces of a gelli print on a page, these were made with leaves as mask.


I added some gold embossed leafs and some brown texture paste through a leaf stencil in which I sprinkled red glitters.
The sweet girl is a stamp from gorjuss which I colored using Derwent coloursoft pencils. The tag is from the same stamp set which I enlarged with the pc, colored with some DI in yellow and green and antiqued the edges and handwrote the quote: good things fall apart so better things can come togehter.
Which is such a wonderful filosophy to think about life.
As finishing touch I also added a dried leaf.



As of tomorrow Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith from over at inky dinky doodle is hosting a weekly link party called sunday sentiments, for more details around this click here. So when her link is up I will also be linking up this ├óge there.

Until next time, bye for now.

  2. Amazing spread Vicky, love those leaves as mask, and you are just right, this autumn was perfect, pity that it's changing from tomorrow, but winter can be nice as well, maybe this year!

    1. O Ruth, I do not need snow, it's great to play in but terrible to drive in, but it should be colder then last year I think.

  9. For some reason, I can't seem to get into my Gelli plate. But you have created some simply stunning pages. Putting them together the way you did, makes this a perfect background for your quote.

  10. Thank you for entering your wonderful project to Sunday Sentiments, Vicky! I've just realized the double meanig of "fall" - used as a verb and also the theme of your layout! Just brilliant!
