Fall Blessings

If you're looking for my Stampendous/Spellbinders post, you can find it here.  Thank you!

As we officially head into the holiday season, the Dream Team is challenging all of our followers to be especially "Thankful and Thoughtful" during the month of November. We hope that you will link your creations with this theme in mind on the Dream It Up! blog using the Inlinkz tool. Our "thanks" to you is providing you with the opportunity to win the stencil of your choice, and a bonus stencil of our choosing could be yours for using Dreamweaver product(s) in your artwork. I'm posting this for you today:

I wanted to do a mini canvas for my bookcase so I created this 6"x6" canvas I'll sit on an easel.  I've had this particular idea knocking around in my head for a few weeks so I was happy to get it created and see it turn out just as cool as I imagined it to be.  

Here's what I used to create this canvas:

Clearsnap® ColorBox® Chalk Paintbox® - Primary Pastels
Clearsnap® ColorBox® Chalk Petal Point® - Autumn Pastels
Tim Holtz® Distress Ink - Antique Linen
Micron® Pen - Black
Artist's Loft™ Canvas Board

Here's what I did to create this canvas

Using sponge daubers, randomly ink leaves around canvas using only yellow, orange, and red tones from the two ink palettes
For each large maple leaf only, replace stencil and loosely outline each leaf following the shape of the stencil but not running your pen against the edge of the stencil
Write your sentiment as shown
By the way, the Dream Team are very THANKFUL when our followers are THOUGHTFUL enough to leave us a nice comment on our posts! Here's the "A" team lineup for this week, as well as our very special guest designer, Linda Neff!

That's it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by and I'll have another post for you over the weekend.  In the meantime, have a wonderful day!



Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my blog, you are truly appreciated and have made my day brighter!
