Lovely Fall

I absolutely love this time of year. I really like seeing the color changes in the leaves. So, naturally I was drawn to this canvas class with the gorgeous fall colors. This class was offered by the only remaining scrapbook store in Greenville, SC - Scrapnesia. The fabulous Katie Cotton, owner of Paper Makeup Stamps taught this class. She is an absolute master at airbrushing with the Copic markers and I was really happy to learn how to do this project from her.
Now, of course I can't tell you exactly how we made this as this was a class I had to pay for and that wouldn't be fair to Scrapnesia or Katie. The leaves were cut using the Cricut. She made a stamp out of the Cricut stamping material which allowed the stamped image to match exactly to our diecut leaves. The stamped sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps. The flourish bling is Say it in Crystals by Prima. We used the YR family of Copics to make this canvas wall hanging.

It measures approximately 8x8 in size and took about an hour and a half to make. This would make a fabulous gift for someone. In the class sample, Katie had a photo on hers. You can see it on Fancy Paper Crafters. I'm sure it is on her blog as well but I can't locate it right this moment. I would highly recommend you check out her blog as she has some really awesome projects posted.
