What I'm thankful for...

As October comes to an end, I'm looking forward to the holidays.  During the month of November I will be adding a new thing I'm thankful for to this little pumpkin.  This pumpkin started out as a blank chalkboard pumpkin I picked up at Joann's.  First I covered it with a layer of gesso then added quite a few layers of orange paint.  

I thought the cute little Sunflower Crow from KaDoodle Bug Designs would be the perfect addition to this project.  All the sunflowers, leaves and pumpkins were accented using my eBrush and Sharpies and Bic Mark-Its.

I then cut some leaves from the Nut'n Better Than Fall set and used that as a stencil with some texture paste to give them added dimension.  I used my eBrush to give the leaves their beautiful coloring.

The clothespin was also colored with my eBrush (nothing is safe from this must have piece of equipment!!).  I tied on a little bow at the stem for a finishing touch.  I LOVE this little decor item and can't wait to display it in my house.

Thanks for stopping by!
