Hi ArtFoamie Fans….Lynne Forsythe here. In Northern NH fall is in the Air, the trees are beautiful, the temperatures have cooled and it’s time to pull out the sweaters and sweatshirts! I just LOVE all the colors of Fall.
Every year, I like to decorate a faux pumpkin and this year is no different.
I pulled out a plastic pumpkin outta my stash, an old pattern a few jars of Perfect Paints and a few ArtFoamies Stamps….
Leaf Vine ~ Balzer Designs
I laid out one of the pattern pieces, brayered on a bit of Perfect Paints ~ Cajun Pumpkin onto the ArtFoamies Polka Dot and randomly stamped onto the patter.
I repeated that process with the ArtFoamies Leaf Vine.
I painted the pumpkin white and when dry, I tore the pattern into strips and collaged them onto my pumpkin using Multi Medium ~ Matte.
When my collaged pumpkin was dry, I dry brushed on a bit of Perfect Paints ~ White Gesso.
Using Perfect Paints ~ Aged Copper I painted the stem on the pumpkin.
But my pumpkin looked naked. First, decided to create a different stem using burlap. I then decided to make a flower, so I found some of the leftover stamped pattern and cut out a circle.
Next, I cut the circle into a spiral.
Finally, I rolled the paper and adhered together with Multi Medium ~ Matte.
But every flower needs leaves! So, I pulled out some of the leftover leaves and added them behind the spiral flower.
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my 2019 Pumpkin!
