Lori asked us to use at least one of Wendy's art parts, at least one of her stamps, and to stay with the Thanksgiving/autumn theme. I worked on and off all day today, and came up with this:
The base is from the Artful Shrines art parts package. It is covered with some Prima paper over which I used the background stamp (burlap, I think) from Funky Flower Art, as well as the weeds from Well Worn Art.
Here's a closer look at the fence:
It comes from the Outdoor Art art parts set. I have some distress crackle paint from a Ranger Warehouse sale that was unlabeled. I think they are broken china and antique linen, and I globbed them on very heavily, allowed it to air dry, then went over the whole thing with vintage photo distress ink. (The bird, by the way, is from a Sizzix decorative strip die called Birds and Branches. The branches can be seen on the top of the piece).
The garland of leaves were cut from shrink plastic with Tim's Tattered Leaves die, colored with both plain and metallic markers, then strung on twine after shrinking.
I used the round flower from Lower Case Art to make the pumpkin, stamping and cutting it three times, and gluing parts down on top of each other to make it dimensional. Then I gave it a good spray with some Perfect Pearls mist.
The sentiment was done on the computer, and it is how I feel. Today.
