Migrating Geese


One of my favourite sights and sounds of autumn is the migrating geese.

Here I used a Tando chipboard arch and frames. I painted them and built up layers of paint, ink, gold misting spray and stamps (leaves and script) . Then I clear embossed the leaf stamps ( Hero and Stampin Up) and slapped more ink over the top for a subtle resist effect. The geese were cut out on the Silhouette electronic die-cutting machine.

For the frame I used a brickwork stencil and randomly inked through it. Then I sprinkled parts of the inked areas with copper embossing powder.

It's so wonderful that I could click on your picture and see a larger image. There's a lot of nuanced detail that just doesn't show up at first glance. Your colors and textures are divine, and you've done nature proud. Thanks for sharing this fall creation!

This is wonderful. I miss the geese! Years ago, I lived in Minnesota and we had geese flying over in the fall...I love the sound of them going overhead. I did not so much love then they stayed overnight in the back yard and left us "gifts"! hee hee I live in southern California now...no geese!
