Spunky in Orange!!! (Rhonda & Julie)

The QQ Design Team is loving the Fall season
and the orange themed papers in the new
Teresa Collins paper line. We are grateful to be
partnering with her this month for the Club Q kit.

RHONDA - Fall Canvas

October greetings to you from Rhonda! I don’t know about you, but I just absolutely love Fall! If you’re like me, you are going to totally adore the new October Club Q kits! I’m excited to show you my Club Q re-do for the October Club Q – Altered kit!

I always enjoy working on altered projects, so when I opened this kit up with these adorable canvases and the beautiful papers by Teresa Collins, well that was just a perfect match! We recently took our kids to go choose their pumpkins at the pumpkin patch so I knew which photos I was going to use as well.

The design approach here was fairly clean and simple; I added a few of those pretty laser cut flourishes for a little extra fun. I loved the combination of Teresa’s super elegant flourish patterns with the hay and pumpkins. A little of the bling trim was just the perfect little touch to add.

I used Midnight Confessions and Mango Mai Tai Powder Puff Chalking Inks for this project. First, I base coated my canvases with some light orange acrylic paint, and then misted it with some orange mist. I then used Mango Mai Tai for the edges of my canvases.

Tip – to attach glue to the back of those little gems I used a toothpick to control the amount of glue applied.

Non-Kit items used: Black cardstock, Orange Maya Mist, Beacon's 3 in 1 Glue

Happy Fall!

Description/tips/techniques:
I used the outside part of the black diecut page as a border above and below the strip of photos. It is meant for scrap, but if you cut them apart you have 4 ready made borders. I absolutely love this kit and all of the diecut pieces that can be layered together. I also used my Silhouette cutter to create the little dancer and scalloped border. I used some of the tabs to fill the pocket. I love that the pockets are part of the punch-outs in the kit.
