It's been a wonderful Tuesday over here even if we had surprise showers throughout the day. The temperature is dropping significantly in the evenings but the sun brings out some warmth during daytime. Time to start rummaging in the basement for other shoes and bringing out the sweaters. Suddenly all the summer colours seem so "wrong".
The TCR palette # 128 is an autumnal one with warm colours, or perhaps you see it as springlike over in Australia.
As I am also going to share my Prima August PPP in this post, I won't take up your time with words. Here it is, my TCR # 128 "Apple" page;
This one's quite heavy IRL and has lots of texture to it as you will see from the close-ups further down.
This photo is by the fantastic Finnish photographer whom I have mentioned many times before. She has given me permission to use photos off her website if I point out that the photos are not mine.
I have used cream coloured alphas forming the names of different apples. Here's is Baldwin.
And Blenheim Orange along with lace, gauze, canvas, beadss, tulle, fabric and regular washi tape and gesso/modelling paste/lots of different mists.
Some Prima leaves that I touched up with acrylic paint in gold.
The suede, tan and beige are mainly in the layers of the matting.
Prima also released the winners and features of the August BAP and PPP yesterday. Jennifer Snyder's gorgeous page won the BAP and Shona Keehn landed herself a well deserved win with her PPP.
For me the ultimate happiness is sharing success with my friends. Together with the beautiful pages of so many of yours, was also my PPP that I have called "Melancholy". CONGRATULATIONS to each and one of us!!
Once again I have used a photo by the same Finnish photographer that I mention above. I always send her a photo of my finished page so that she can see what I have created with it.
And with this last photo we have come to the end of this post. Thanks so much for your patience and for your much appreciated visit!
I am sending you off with a peek of the third joint September OUAS + CSI challenge that will be released this Friday evening standard Eastern time/Saturday morning standard Eastern Australian time. This time I will be sharing my page as OUAS DT member why it will be featured over at OUAS as well.
Toodeloo! xoxo Eila
