Come On!

Come on and join in the Artistic Outpost's New Release of "Hayride" and "Christmas Chalk"  Blog Hop with Gerrie, Lisa, Suzanne, Tracy, Linda, Alison, Terry (Me) and Kate.

Today I am sharing a wall hanging using Hayride and Chalk It Up!
This ended up being a fun project, but it did not start out as such! I first inked up some paper with Antique Linen and a little Brushed Corduroy, knowing I would use the ledger stamp from Ephemera Backgrounds for a subtle background. Once the background was stamped using Brushed Corduroy, the Frame and Tractor (love this) was stamped in Coffee Archival. The edge was die cut with Tim's notebook!
That was my start and I tried this and that and this and that and could not find a decent home for my duly noted tractor!
I looked around at this and that, you get the picture and then saw the frame that I had from my good old painting days! The brain power kicked in!  The frame was painted in French Vanilla and stamped with Sepia Archival and clear embossed. I did think about adding some crackle, etc., but decided no.
Something told me to go with corrugated cardboard and make some leafy matter!  Once I cut the leaves and pine cone, I stained them using Mustard Seed, Barn Door, Bundled Sage, Rusty Hinge and Dusty concord. After nice and dry, I applied Crackle, let dry and brushed on Vintage Photo stain. I was thinking these were a little bright and remembered that talent ball, Astrid, mentioning toning down color with Dylusions "White Linen" and this worked quite nicely! Thanks, Astrid!

The corrugated cardboard background was cut and cracked and stained with Vintage Photo. All cardboard edges were highlighted using Treasure Gold, White Fire!

Really love these new releases and I can't wait to share more of my completed projects over the next few weeks. The September Monthly Referral Program is waiting for you and your AO stamps, so come on and have some fun!

Thank you so much for visiting today!

Wonderful make Terry, that tractor looks fab inside the frame and anything on corrugated card always does it for me. Love the leaves too! The colours have turned out fantastic, so glad the Dylusions trick worked for you. Love the chalkyness of the stuff, just had to get myself another bottle...

Loving that wire mesh background that holds your fabulous piece suspended. Corrugated card is one of those things I could not live without in craft and it looks wonderful as a leafy embellishment. The tractor stamp is perfect in the middle. Love this. Hugs, Anne x

LOVE this - yes, I did mean for uppercase, to prove how much I love this creation. Those gorgeous textures and details.
I am in rustic mode myself at the moment having created a DT piece (I will whisper that it uses an AO set) with corrugated cardboard, burlap, bark and more.
