Rust and Patina'd Pumpkin by Toni

Happy day to all... I'm up on Art Anthology's blog today  and so excited to share with you two  brand new sets that are available. They are Rust set and Patina set, beautiful colors and textures.  Both can be purchased HERE. 

You will love these paint sets, so easy to work with, dry quickly and have wonderful grit. 
 Both sets of paints were used on my paper mache pumpkin. I first began by covering the pumpkin with metal tape that I ran through an embossing plate. Giving it a coat of gesso so the tape would be primed for my paints.
The leaves were created by cutting burlap and applying wire to the back to provide the leaves to bend for interest. The stem was created using grapevine craft wire and seed beads. 
For an added project I also purchased these wood leaves at the craft store. They were 70 % off so the leaves cost me 20 cents !!!! Printed out my words, burnt the edges and applied to my leaf using AA's Sorbet in Glass, Tied a piece of twine and they will go around all my place settings at Thanksgiving table this year. 
 Wishing you a joyful and blessed holiday season filled with family and friends. For your pleasure I have prepared a Snapguide tutorial of my process below. Hope you enjoy. xoxo Toni
