PaperArtsy blog Topic #18 'Autumn Girl'

Hello everyone Etsuko here. I'm delighted to be joining you tonight sharing a triptych I created fabulous PaperArsty blog the fortnight theme Autumn Leaves.
I love to come to the autumn of calm season after the glamorous summer. 
And I made the sentiment atmosphere of autumn.

I started painting Golden white gesso onto the wooden icon triptych when it dried
I used sanding blocks.

I used these Fresco Acrylic Finish.

First of all I made the two masterboards for the background by Fresco Acrylic Finish and smoothy white stamping card.

The center masterboard--I starched a piece of book papers randomly on top of the white paper then I painted by China, Guacamole, Mermaid and Little Black Dress, also I stamped ECL09EEV05 and Seth Apter stamps circle  by Blue Glass, Tango and Vanilla.

The side masterboard--(1) I peinted by Brown Shed when it dried I painted by Nougat on it.  I scratched by Catalyst C-62 when Nougat wet.
(2) I starched a piece of book papers and painted Guacamole, using some stencil by Blue Glass then washed by Snowflake with water onto the 1.
(3) I made a leaves which painted by Tango and Pumpkin Soup onto a book paper. (4) I fussy cut the leaves and starched with gel medium onto the 2.

Starched all background papers.

Next I used Clare's ECL09. I was very happy when I had painted her. She is very pretty, I am not good at drawing someone's faces but this stamp is very good!! 

I made her dress using Clare's ECL09 flower stamp and Coral and Snowflake.
Also I made the butterfly using same Clare's ECL09 by Gold and black embossing powder.


I starched every pieces onto the triptych.

Finally I made the door. I used some pieces of paper with gel medium I then used Sara's stencil PS027 by Grunge Paste and I painted by Pumpkin Soup. I used TH stencil Gothic by French Roast Fresco. When it dried I did white paint-wash and I stamped Sara's ESN20 quotes and Clare's ECL09 flower by Archival Potting Soil. Also I made the butterfly for the embellishment-- I used White Fire but the photo seems off white.
I was completed with the some embellishments.

I really enjoyed this project, I love the Frescos they have the various possibilities and beautiful colours make me happy. I hope you liked today's project.
