Handpainted Fall Wheat Door Hanging

Butter, Caramel and Chocolate.
 
I know what you're thinking,
 
but I'm not in the kitchen.
 
This is my paint palette today.
 
 
 
Pin It!
Oh, but I am so ready to make
 
banana bread and pumpkin pie.
 
 
 
filling the house up
 
with everything warm and wonderful.
 
People too.
 
A time to Gather.
 
 
 
 
So how about this for a warm fall welcome.
 
Starting with the fence board build.
 
Then it's all about graduated paint color,
 
tone on tone.
 
Starting on the bottom board with
 
two shades of cream.
 
 
 
 
Using a piece of cardstock for my paint tool,
 
I drag the paint on in a layered look.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Puddles of Paint Goodness
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pin It!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Add some cream highlights.
 
Muddy up the wheat stems with some cream paint on cardstock
 
giving it a "not so perfect" finish.
 
A little grungy and worn.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Butter, caramel and chocolate
 
in layered paint style
 
are a warm backdrop for
 
stems of fall wheat and
 
"Brush Script" letters.
 
An invitation to friends and family.
 
Words that speak of the season.
 
Words that welcome people into your home
 
and around your table.
 
 
 
Pin It!
 
What a fun season!

GORGEOUS! Pinning, although I know I could never recreate that myself!

Stopping by from the 36th Ave. Party, Dawn from http://www.ithinkwecouldbefriends.com
