Hi it is Pam today sharing with you this fun 8 x 8 "Gather a Harvest of Love" Frame...if you love to watercolor, you will love this frame but first begin by placing a piece of fall pattern paper inside the frame and on the sides using the same pattern paper.
To make all the beautiful leaves, you will need your SinCity Fall Collection 2 Stamps from Pam Bray
, Black Memories Ink, distress paint (listed below), mister bottle full of water, paint brush and watercolor paper. Stamp 18 leaves on to watercolor paper with your black ink....
Dab Mustard Seed and Barn Door Distress Paint on to your work surface, mist with water to thin it out....I also mist a puddle of water so I can dip my paintbrush into it as I am working....paint your leaves with Mustard Seed and then add the Barn Door to give the leaves dimension, it helps to even pick up a bit of each paint along with the water.....
Do the same with next set, only use Barn Door, Fired Brick and Frayed Burlap.....
and the last set with Wild Honey, Mowed Lawn, Seedless Preserves,
Fussy cut them all out....
Punch out a 3 1/2" circle and stamp "Gather a harvest of Love" from the SinCity Stamp Fall Collection 2 Stamp Set
and place it in the center of the frame.
Add all but three of the leaves you have painted around the circle, place a bow at the edge of the circle.
Place some dried fall pieces to the bottom of the frame along with the last 3 leaves to make them appear to be falling. I hope you enjoy my "Gather a Harvest of Love" Frame and try to make one for the Thanksgiving holiday. Hugs Pammejo
