So I tried the "mind over matter" idea and started thinking about fall. Fall is my favorite season. Not so hot that you want to wear shorts anymore and not so cold that you don't want to go outside. Not that it ever gets really cold here anyway.
I just got that new pumpkin set, Autumn Harvest and tried to make something for a workshop I have coming up. I've been having a serious bout with "stamper's block" lately and decided to check out the Stamping 411 site. This is another reason I wanted to start a blog. To take part in the color and sketch challenges that are everywhere nowadays. Not that you win anything, its just fun. It was just what I needed. Here is the sketch
Alot of people start out with a sketch. This is my first time using one and it sure made my life a little easier. The 411 site is pretty neat too. They post a new sketch every week. Go check it out.
Anyway, what do you think?
It still took me 5000 hours to complete because I have children, but I like it. Although I think it might be a little much for my workshop. Looking at it now, I should have put a darker color behind the pumpkins. It seems like too much orange/yellow now. Oh well....................
I used my favorite way to watercolor: Aquapainters and classic inks. I would have put a sentiment on there but I don't have anything Thankgivingy or Fallish. I also wanted to point out that I used our new halloween DSP. That orange paper there? Yep, thats halloween paper. Tricky aren't I?
I gotta get some more stamping done for my workshop. Nothing like waiting until the last minute. Wish me luck! b.
