 with a quick spray of paint and a bit of imagination...

paper pumpkin art

on October 1, i FINALLY succumbed to fall and brought out my pumpkin decor!

yet there was one spot on my gallery wall that was too plain - lemme' 'splain:
a year ago, i covered an old painting with some vintage canvas,
 and have been pinning and tying things on it each season 
to coordinate with my changing decor.
(spring version in a past post here)


i stared at that empty thing for two days and had NO idea what to put on it...
until i saw a pile of scrap craft & wrapping paper in my studio.
orange paper. with polka dots and graphic lines. in varied shades. 
and then i knew what to do!
