Round mixed-media ATC "Fall through the water" from Julia MITRA.

Hello there!
It's Julia here and my autumn mood!
For me, autumn colors are not only leaf fall and crimson, but also a charming splash of cold water, the crackle of twigs and the aroma of withering and slightly tart freshness.
All these emotions I wanted to show in my mixed-media ATC series.

As a basis, I took the shape of a circle, which was cut out of binding cardboard. Then I primed the base, covering it with gauze.

Next, I added a texture paste through the stencil and sprinkled with sprays and magic paints.

Also on the basis of I added background stamping, as well as some details in the project.

In addition to sprays, I actively used acrylic paints from Fabrica Decoru for the base and details.

ATC series turned out to be bright and atmospheric, with many details and layers.

In layers you can notice cotton mesh lace, chipboard, corrugated board, die-cuts, stamped leaves, round glass (large) and acrylic drops, toppings.

And for decoration I used our beautiful flowers, of course!

There are such wonderful flowers in this project:

I really liked to play with color and alternate textures and paints, but even more I like the details - leaves, for example, or chipboard feathers... And even droplets!

In my project I used magic paints and magic paints with effect: Cobat Blue, Orange, Olive, Siena Natural, Golden Heavens, Chocolate with bronze, Golden sand.

In addition to dry magic paint, I used acrylic Rustic Paint and Shabby Velour, as well as metallic paints - Bronze and Bounty.

Rustic Paints is Dark turquoise, Concrete and Iron oxide.
Shabby velour is Olive color.
All paints from Fabrika Decoru.

That's such a bright and outstanding series of round ATC I got! 
I hope you enjoyed them))

See you in our future October IAR Challenge in the next time!
With ♥, Julia)

Teacher's day cards "Deep Green&Tangerine" from Julia MITRA.

Hello sweets!
It's Julia MITRA here and my autumn inspiration with two Teacher's day cards.
These greetings I made in the autumn palette using beautiful colors and stunning flowers from IAR with lots of decor.

For decoration I used our gorgeous flowers and leaves:
๐Ÿ‚ Deep Olive Green Crafts Paper Flowers
๐Ÿ‚ Christmas Green Mixed Paper Flowers
๐Ÿ‚ Taupe Small paper Flowers
๐Ÿ‚ Pale Peach with Orange in the Middle 2 tone paper Flowers
๐Ÿ‚ Tangerine Orange Variegated Cherry Blossoms
๐Ÿ‚ Dark Green Cherry Blossoms
๐Ÿ‚ Brown Artificial Handmade Craft Paper Flowers
๐Ÿ‚ Tangerine Variegated Craft Paper Flowers
๐Ÿ‚ Peach Indian Jasmine Mulberry Paper Flowers
๐Ÿ‚ Mixed Brown Green Rose Leaves

The size of the cards is 10*15cm.
To decorate the green card I used the inscription in russian "Beloved teacher".

For the background I took scrap paper and added it with round die cuts.

In the layers of the card you may notice floral lace, cutting from the autumn collection from Fabrika Dekoru and chipboard.

I like to mix different flowers in size and colors - so the project looks more interesting.

The second card has a tangerine hue and looks more in autumn mood.
The inscription here is "Happy Teachers Day!"

For details, I added to the layers of cards bundles of sisal and flower stamping.

Floral stamping I added colour by using Magic paint and Magic paint with the effect from Fabrika Decoru.

I used some beautiful tones: "Golden sand", "Siena natural", "Orange" for flowers and "Forest moss" for leaves.
A little leafy chipboard painted with metallic paint.

Here is what I got, autumn mood greetings for teachers.
I hope you enjoyed them!

Thanks for watching!
Waiting for your beautiful projects in September IAR Challenge!
With ♥, Julia)
