Well over here in the UK the Summer seems like a distant memory and winter is very much round the corner so making the most of the Autumn and the Halloween season is a must for me.
With that in mind the new challenge over at The Octopode Factory is 'Pumpkins'.
I have used another of the Tando-Creative Mixed Media Boards I am loving these they take paint and pretty much anything you can throw at them.
I thought Lily's Edward Scissor Hands image would add some humour and who else could carve a pumpkin as well as Edward?
I have also used the Set Of 3 Pumlkins, the images have all been coloured with Copics and clear embossed.
The back ground was painted with Decoart Americana Acrylic paints,I started with a citrus Green/Yellow, a layer of Decoart's Weathers Wood, this gives the really great cracks when another colour of paint is applied over the top, I went for a pumpkin orange.
I mixed some green acrylic paint with Decoart's Modelling paste and applied it through a shabby diamond stencil. When this was dry I swiped the edges with some archival ink and gave the whole thing a generous coating of Decoart's Triple Thick Gloss Glaze.
I added the chunky eyelet, the pumpkin brad and a suede thong to finish off.
We would love to see you join us over at The Octopode Factory for the challenge.You have just under two weeks to take part. As always there are some images up for grabs for the winner, you do not have to use an Octopode Image but if you do your name will go into the prize draw twice xx
Thanks for stopping by xx
