Metallic on Black

I really enjoyed creating patterns with my Gelly Roll Metallic Pens
by Sakura on this black tile.
I think it looks like a jelly fish!

Can you say . . ."ADORABLE!"

I warned you ~ I love pumpkins.
Here is the first! of my soon be be pumpkin patch ~ keep watching!

Started as a 4" diameter wool circle.
Wool and floss from Weeks Dye Works~ see link to the right.

Told Ya!!!!

Ok ~ here is my Pumpkin Patch!

These were so much fun to make! I'm NOT done either!
(I am going to make a sign to go with them too!)

Pumpkin Tray

Okay . . . ANYONE who knows me, knows that Autumn
is my favorite time of year AND pumpkins are such a BIG part of that love.

This tray is not really square but I'm going to say it measures 12" x 12".
It was an unfinished wood tray and I just sprayed it with black paint
and then gave it a coat of clear matte finish. The paper I used for my ZIA pumpkin is
Strathmore Bristol Vellum. I used decorative scissors to cut the paper
and then backed it with a piece of black paper. The tray came with glass,
but I switched it out with a piece of plastic to cover my art.

I had a blast making this and WILL be making more.
