Fall Layout

Here’s something a little different from what you normally see me create.  I’m expanding my horizons (always a good thing to do) plus it’s my first project for Basically Bare!  I started with one of their cardboard album pages as my base, covering it with some Bella Blvd paper.


I did a little experimenting.  Since I wanted the chipboard house (BB Happy Houses) to have a brick look, I took a piece of acrylic and ran it through my Sizzix using the TH Checkerboard texture fade.  Next I used several layers of Cranberry alcohol ink to give it a brick color.  I cut it down to size and applied it with Glossy Accents.  It’s still slightly transparent and the Glossy Accents dries crystal clear.  I left the chipboard unpainted under the acrylic since it adds to the “brick effect” I was aiming for.


A Prima branch, some foam leaves from the Dollar Tree, acorns from my backyard, and a BB bird colored (how about SOAKED) with Dylusions and it’s done!


I hope you enjoyed!  Until later…………………

  1. The way you created that brick texture is brilliant! Storing that one away for future reference :)
