Fall Inspiration with Dorlene!

Dorlene here to show off the Fall decoration I made using an assortment of Quick Quotes patterned papers and PowderPuff Chalk Inks and Halloween/Fall themed rubber stamps.

I purchased this pumpkin wood base from our local dollar store knowing that I was going to completely re-purpose it.

The first thing I did was make a pattern using newsprint of the inner pumpkin. Then I cut it into three pieces to use as a cutting guide. Once the papers were cut, I used an assortment of stamps and PowderPuff Chalk Inks to create a collaged background before adhering the pieces to the pumpkin base.

For a finished look, I inked around both sides of the pumpkin edge with Kokomo PowderPuff Chalk Ink.

I used my cricut to cut out leaves and added burlap bows to adorn them and complete the project.
Hand lettering for the sentiment...

One side a little more traditional "orange" celebrating Fall and the other side a "blue/teal" pumpkin to celebrate Halloween.
