HOWDY from Joi - at the ranch!!!
First of all, let me say... I am thankful for all of you who put up with me and my blogging artwork!!!! Really truly I am.
Every Thanksgiving, my brother and his family are here at the ranch... hunting, watching football, and eating yummy treats!! It's usually warm in Texas at Thanksgiving so we spend a lot of time outdoors together. I am thankful for this time with family!
Hubby made me a cedar board for the project and after collecting some branches and acorns... I began adding layers.
I cut my THANKFUL leaf from cardstock and decorated with:
"Thankful" was hand printed with the grey pen. The edge and the leaf veins were done with nougat and magenta:
Faber-Castell Pitt Pens:
Cold Grey VI
After the leaf was dry, I added some DecoArt Crackle Glaze for some fun texture.
Here are some of the items used in the project... when I took this picture I wasn't sure which ones would end up there!
I made the tag earlier when just playing one day. It is tissue colored tissue paper added to the tag with gel medium! So fun! For this project, I used my pitt pens and made the yellow flowers and green leaves more fall looking!!!
I fussy cut the leaves and the flowers from some wrapping paper!
This was a fun project to do because I love the fall colors! As you know - any color of orange is my favorite!!!!!
