It's November. The bags are lining up along our garage as we start to rake up leaves and thinking of all those wonderful colors dropping to the ground.
Yeah, I'm partial to trees. I love the green or purple Ash in our yard, the red maple or the pin oak. All the leaves are just amazing when it's time for fall. So I'm getting my full enjoyment of fall by creating the Thankful Tree for our home this season.
I started out with a walk around the yard for some branches and then I sprayed them with gold paint and let them dry while I headed back to the studio to create some leaf notes. This is where it got entirely too fun!
I pulled out my Creative Palette.

And a few or more DecoArt acrylic paints and my well loved brayer.

I have a dozen or more individual fall color monoprints now that I stamp the leaves from the Jumbo Cling Leaves Stamps Set in black ink and then embossed with Opaque Midnight Black Embossing Powder. The last step and one that will be going on for a few more days to have enough for the whole month is using the matching Leaves Die Cut Set.
I'm thankful for so many things, but for this post I'll say I'm thankful for a wonderful company like Stampendous.
