The Mini O color scheme for September was clearly an autumn themed color scheme… but with so many autumn themed packs around digiland, I wanted to come up with something that was a little different… And then I had to think of mushrooms and how the color scheme would be perfect for a mushroom themed Mini O collection!
There’s something mystical about mushrooms. They have fascinating shapes, gorgeous colors, medicinal qualities and they have lived on this planet for ages. The oldest mushroom found in amber lived 90 million years ago! They are edible and they are known to absorb and digest dangerous substances like oil, pesticides and industrial waste. They are present in fairy tales, and in dark stories about witches and potions…
The ‘Hunting Mushrooms’ collection is comprised of lovely whimsical bits and woodsy pieces like fall berries and branches, feathers and autumn leaves, an autumn paper pack with gradient colors, a pack with handmade photo masks (painted with coffee!), a solid color texture pack, a set of transfers with vintage mushroom images, paint and various textures (and a bit of light), and last but not least, a pack with some amazing mushroom and fall themed poems, the finishing touch to your layouts!
Offer valid thru Monday 2 October 2017.
Let’s take a closer look:
Included are 30 PNG files: 1 acorn, 1 arrow, 2 berry branches, 1 vintage bird, 1 brad, 1 branch, 1 butterfly, 1 button, 2 feathers, 4 flowers, 3 pieces of foliage, 1 frame, 2 wooden mushrooms, 1 mushroom charm, 1 piece of vintage ephemera, 1 ribbon, 1 string, 1 tag, 1 woodslice, 3 wordstrips.
Included are 7 images, saved as individual PNG files. (Don’t they look so cute?)
A pack with 7 poems about fall and mushrooms, from classic authors like Emily Brontë, Robert Louis Stevenson, John Ford… These are great to add interesting details to your fall themed layouts and projects. Use blend modes and opacities for surprising results. You will receive 7 PNG files.
I painted these photo masks with coffee (yes!) during our trip to France last summer. I scanned and edited them and mixed with other painted masks from my stock. Included in this pack are 6 PNG files.
I just love making these gradient papers. It’s always fascinating to see how the colors interact if I blend them. Included are 9 JPG files, 12 x 12 in.
And finally, 7 textured solids to combine with all the other packs. Included in this pack are 7 JPG files, 12 x 12 in.
