Girlie Grunge Fall Decor by ~Donna Salazar

Hello my peeps! Today I'm sharing photos of a couple of Fall home decor items that I've made in my Girlie Grunge Style. 

The first project I'm going to share with you is a wood sign made with products from Jillibean Soup

I used their "Mix The Media" 8x8 Wood Plank & Ephemera Pack in Cream and their Mini Alphas in Navy. I also used my Denim Ribbon, Texture Ribbons, Lace Ribbons, 3D Foam Swirls with several adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and my Bitty Blossoms die from Spellbinders.

I used cards from Jillibean Soup's Ephemera Pack to create the layered pumpkin and I inked the edges of all the paper elements with my Mix'd Media Inx™ CHOX. 

In the photo above I used the Ephemera Pack to make the leaf out of a tag and I cut a stem from one of the cards. I also used my organza ribbon (from my Texture Ribbons pack) to create the bow... When you add a bit of heat from a heat gun to the organza ribbon you can make the ribbon all wonky.

In the photo above I have a close up of my 3D Foam Swirls colored with Gold and Blue Pigment Powder then inked with my Mossy Mix'd Media Inx™ and finished with clear embossing powder over the top. You can also see my Twinkle Dust Glitter peeking out from behind the lace. You can get that effect by using a clear wide double sided adhesive tape on the back of your lace. Adhere the lace, sprinkle glitter over the top and burnish with your finger. Remove the excess and you have peek-a-boo glitter!

Supplies for the wood sign:

The second project I want to share with you is an altered Girlie Grunge craft pumpkin.

I started with a foam craft pumpkin and decoupaged old book pages to it. I dry brushed some acrylic paint over a couple spots and made a glaze with my Pigment Powders to drip down the sides.

I added a piece of card stock to the back of a piece of denim using an Adhesive Sheet from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and die cut the Bitty Blossom and the leaves with my dies. I also die cut several other Bitty Blossoms out of paper, added in some Rose Creations die cuts and made several lace flowers using my Lace Ribbons. I also added a bow using the organza from my Texture Ribbons pack. I used a heat gun to make this bow wonky as well.

I mixed my Brown Pigment Powder with acrylic medium to make the glittery brown paint that I used to paint the leaves and outlined them with a black Sharpie when the paint dried.

Above is a close up of the texture that I was able to get on the side of the pumpkin.
