Pumpkin mood in "Funny&Creepy" cards from Julia MITRA.

It's Julia here with a bit of creepy and funny inspiration))
In our country, people don't celebrate Halloween, and therefore we have no special reason to create a little scary, but also beautiful projects as a gift.
But I think that you can always find a way out of a difficult situation and use the attributes of this holiday with an autumn theme.
So I created a couple of bright cards with very smiling and a little scary pumpkins.

In my project I used beautiful flowers:

For these cards, I specially made a watercolor background with sprays and added a texture paste through a "knitted" stencil.

I also added a text background stamping to the base.

I love to create with bright colors, so this project was very positive and cool for me!

For decor, I used a background chipboard, paper tishyu, cutting, leaf stamping, twain and cool pumpkin chipboard.

Pumpkins painted first with acrylic paint, and then I added dry Magic paint (Fabrika Decoru).

I added some sequins for a festive sparkle.

And the final touch is a spray of black liquid dots.
Happy Halloween!

Don't forget to add your adorable flower projects to our October IAR Challenge!

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)
