Family Tree

Poppystamps Blog Challenge for this month is Fall Frolic.  I used one of their frame dies to frame this family quote.  I first started with watercolor paper and some colorburst for my background. I added a little spray of water before adding the colors and then added more water after to blend them all together.  I used some of the liquid metallic that was watered down just a bit and then splatter over the whole piece.  After die cutting the frame I had some extra from the middle so I cut out the extra leaves too.  The sentiment is from an old book of Vellum quotes and sentiments.

Poppystamps - Thicket Frame die
Memory Box - Marvelous Maple Leaves
Colorburst - Naples Yellow, Marigold and Wisteria
Liquid Metals - Metallic Mandarian (splattered)
JoAnn Essentials - Vellum Quotes and sentiments Family pack

You have until November 27th for this challenge.

I am pretty excited that the week ahead we should have more close to normal temperatures, so I am hoping to get out side and get the rest of our yard work done and we are also thinking of putting up the Christmas lights but not actually turn them on until after Thanksgiving, that is my rule, no Christmas until after Thanksgiving :)

Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead and thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and letting me know you did.

Beautiful and love the sentiment!! Yes I've started my indoor holiday decorating and hope with a few more nice days to get the outside done but I agree ... not lit until after Thanksgiving!! We have our annual holiday neighborhood gather on the 8th ... hence the early decorating! Beautiful creation my friend!
