Butter, Caramel and Chocolate.
I know what you're thinking,
but I'm not in the kitchen.
This is my paint palette today.
Oh, but I am so ready to make
banana bread and pumpkin pie.
filling the house up
with everything warm and wonderful.
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
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.
What a fun season!
