And the Countdown Begins!

Less than two weeks until the first craft fair of the season! I can honestly say for the first time, I'm ready! The last few craft fairs we worked did not go well. Its difficult to determine what to bring and if it will sell. But we are going to give it a try and see how well it goes.

Here are a few seasonal decorations I made to sell.

The first one is with an autumn theme. I have seen decorations like this selling in the store, so I thought I'd try to make a few.

I used Lacy Labels for the shape, and cut it out of chipboard. I covered the chipboard with paper from DCWV's Rustic Stack on front and back of shape. I inked the edges of each panel.

I used several different cartridges for the fall themed shapes for each of the panels. Satin ribbon was used to attach the shapes together and for a hanging loop at the top.

Tree is from Stretch Your Imagination, Pumpkins are from Pooh and Friends, Acorns from B is for Boy, Leaves are from Mickey and Friends and Everyday Paperdolls and basket and apples are from Doodlecharms. I cut all the shapes from white paper - its a special paper I found at the art supply store that is for airbrushing. It worked beautifully for use with the Copic markers.

Here are some close ups of the panels.

This one is a little more specific for Thanksgiving. The word Grateful is from the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge, Pumpkin from Happy Hauntings, Leaves from Micky and Friends, Acorns from B is for Boy and Horn of Plenty is from Paper Dolls Dress Up.

Here are a few more close ups of the panels.

I also used the airbrush paper for these cut outs and colored the shapes with Copic markers.

I love Autumn and the colors but I try not to think of what comes soon after fall!

Hope you enjoyed your stay...and please, come back soon!

Have a great day!
