DT post for Creative Artiste.

Hi everyone! Time for challenge number 7 over on Creative Artiste - the sponsor this month is:

The theme this month is LACE & PEARLS.
The images I have used for my project have come from the digis called 'Stitchy Fall'.
Once I had downloaded these I found I had backing papers, coloured images & images to colour. These can all be resized.
I printed off some coloured images - printed these quite large, then I printed some smaller images to colour.
I printed off two of the backing papers onto copy paper. I wanted these on a canvas but didn't want to stick them on so I decided to try some Golden Medium. I spread this out onto the top and bottom of the canvas, placed the backing papers, face down, onto the medium. I made sure the paper was well attached to the canvas then left to dry. Once dry I wet the paper then carefully rubbed away the paper with my finger until the pattern appeared.
I painted across the middle of the canvas with orange acrylic paint.
Added some gold Rub'n'Buff around the edges of the canvas and where the backing papers met the acrylic paint.
Once I had cut out the large images I decided to get my melt pot out - melted some thick embossing powder & coated each of the large images to give them a bit of shine.
Printed out one of the sentiments onto white card, edged with distress ink then dipped that into the melt pot as well. Attached this to some burlap.
Added some lovely wine coloured lace around the large pumpkin & sunflower. Added some white pearls on the pumpkin. Also some heart pearls around the canvas.
Arranged all my elements until I liked the arrangement, then stuck everything down.
Added a couple of gold silk flowers.
