Fall Decor




My latest mixed media canvas is for Thanksgiving.  The stamp is from Cloud 9 and is a quote from Oprah Winfrey.


For the canvas, I used a lot of neutrals and citron green paint for the base.  Eventually I covered the entire surface with a combination of Faber Castell glaze and Vintage Photo reinker so it became more of light avocado green.  It takes just a couple of drops of the ink to give a nice aged glaze. The leaves were cut on the Cricut in several layers of pattern paper and light chipboard and then glued together.  It makes them really sturdy.  They feel more like wood veneer.
I don't normally do anything different in the house for fall but save all my decorating for Christmas.  Do you put out fall decor?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Your canvas is beautiful. I love these colours and your leaves, beautiful.
    I do decorate for fall.
    I decorate early…then put up Halloween decor. When I take down the Halloween decor the fall decor stays until Christmas :)

  2. This is so beautiful, Lisa. I love the falling leaves! We're all decorated here for fall and Thanksgiving (had a bit of Halloween in there too for a while but took that down last week). :)

  3. Gorgeous! I do put out a little bit of fall decor most of the time. I don't go nearly as all out as I do for Christmas, though.
