Fall Decor Blog Hop (Frosted Design Fancy Trim) 10-14

Welcome to the Fall Home Decor Blog Hop!!  This is also my project for this week at Frosted Designs Fancy Trim Challenge.  You should have arrived from NANCY.  If you found me first, please go to the BEGINNING so you don't miss anything!

I started with an 8x10 canvas and some fall scrapbook paper.  I adhered the paper to my canvas then painted the edges with brown acrylic paint.
I inked the edges of the paper with the brown paint as well.
I found this border strip from Elegant Edges cut it out at .88 inches.
I cut it out in orange cardstock.

I cut out this "So Grateful" from Calligraphy Collection last fall and ended up not using it.  I did not save the file, but I believe it was cut at 3 inches.  I cut it out in a brown shimmer cardstock.
I folded the brown ribbon and used glue dots to hold it in place.
I tied knots in my gold sheer ribbon to add some texture.
I added some gems to the bottom of the canvas.
The sunflower adds the perfect touch to my fall wall decor!  I have this hanging in my entryway.

I have a little blog candy today.  In order to qualify you just need to be or become a follower or subscriber, and leave me a comment with your favorite thing about fall.  Mine is the changing leaves and the smell of a bonfire.

Your next stop in the hop is MARIA Gonescraphappy!

This is very pretty. I have seen these canvas pieces before but never thought of them for this use. Great idea! tfs Tami

Sheila said...

Hi! Just love your designs, you are soooo clever
I have a question for you - when using the Gypsy, do you have to use cartridges or can you import different files into the mix ie. gsd or silhouette files? I ask, because I have a Craft Robo and make up designs which are saved as .gsd, but if you can import them into your gypsy they may be of use to you. Also, what do you save your files as? Perhaps I can use some of your designs. Please let me know what you think.

Beautiful art project. I'm following your blog. My favorite thing about fall would be the cool breezes. I love to breath in the fresh cool air at night.

In reply to Shelia ~ Thank you for the kind words!!!!! Unfortunately, you can only cut images and designs from the cartridges you own and that are linked to a Gypsy. You are sweet to want to share your designs/files with me, but I am afraid they would not work...

Pick bowls, jars, vases, trays, platters, canisters and footed stands in combination of shapes and sizes. Scoops and spoons make the perfect accessory to a jar of lollies too. Everything you put on the table must match your color scheme or theme. I like the combination of the two or three monochromatic colors. Insulation methods.
