Turkey Time with BoBunny...

As Thanksgiving approaches, here in the USA, my kids and I are gearing up for fun Fall crafts!
So far this week, we are enjoying our Thank You Turkey:



























The feathers are in a pumpkin jar for now, and as we go about our days, we jot down a Thankful Thought or two on the back of a feather, and add it to the turkey.



























During our Thanksgiving Feast, we'll enjoy reading the feathers to each other & discussing what we are grateful for this year.

Also this month at BoBunny, I shared a Fall Traditions layout.  Yes, it's another layout about our annual Pumpkin Patch outing *smiles*



































I love how the bold colors of the Autumn Song collection pop on the Chiffon cardstock.
Hints of warm-toned jewels and bronze brads complete my Autumnal palette:



Aw, I adore these two sweethearts...so grateful for them.  Now bring on the feast! :)

November @ Frog Dog Studio

Hello and Happy November to you and yours, even though it's halfway through already! :)

Today at Frog Dog Studio, I am up with a video tutorial featuring the amazing Starburst spray inks from Lindy's Stamp Gang.

You can see my technique video HERE, and here are the projects I created with the November main kit and papercrafting add-on.
 


































Aw, my little ones are so LITTLE in this gorgous Fall photo!  Love the colors of this BoBunny Autumn Song collection, and loved using mixed media techniques with spray ink, glitter, and embossing powder on this layout.



























Another Autumnal layout here, at our favorite pumpkin patch, love the running in the photo:


The shimmer you get with these sprays is phenomenal, but doesn't always show up well online. 
Here's a better angle so you can take in all the shimmery goodness:














































I also created a Fall banner for our home:




























The Maya Road canvas stars took the spray ink so well, and with some diecut leaves and words from the BoBunny paper pad, this banner was a breeze to put together.

With the November Main kit, I had such fun coloring Catherine Scanlon's Art Journal pages - art therapy, for sure, and made me feel like a kid again, coloring to my heart's content.












































Watercolors + glaze pens, sigh, just a joy to create with.













































Utilizing all the finishes from the different art mediums in the kit, you get such interest and dimension to each page.

Happy Friday to you, and hope that this weekend brings some relaxing art-time in one form or another.

Guesting @ Scrap Africa!

Yes, I'm still alive, though you wouldn't know it from my poor, sad, neglected blog these days, lol.

I'm happy to be guesting this month over at the Scrap Africa challenge blog!
Here is the page I created with their fun sketch:



































Lots of washi goodness, metallic finishes, and vintage touches here.



























Using up my letter stash & some new PLS goodies on this one!

To check out the other DT examples & to play along with the original sketch, stop by the Scrap Africa HERE.

Thanks so much to Denise & Evgenia at Scrap Africa, for inviting me to join in the fun!
