I began by die cutting the leaves with my Cuttlebug and Tim Holtz's leaves die.
I painted the background of the canvas with blues and greens blending them from ground to sky.
Finding a twig outside, I decided to afix it to the canvas with hot glue. Arranging the leaves on the 'branch', I was having a hard time limiting the number of leaves to just the ones shown (I wanted to add them ALL).
Anyone who knows me in art, knows that I am obsessed with borders, so I just had to cover the edges.
I used black archival ink and a Tim Holtz stencil. If you look close, you'll see that I outlined each dot with a gold circle.
Next, I drew a pumpkin on a piece of computer paper and cut it apart.
I chose a few orange scrapbook papers and traced each of the pumpkin pieces on the papers and cut them out.
I assembled the scrapbook pumpkin pieces on the canvas. I outlined the completed pumpkin with Big Brush markers. I added a few more leaves and drew some swirly vines from the stem. I hand lettered a quote that I love about Autumn and... voila.
I love Fall and I am so happy with the result of this canvas.
