THANK

You might want to click on this photo to see it larger...

After experiencing last weekend...I am acutely aware of the gift of Easter. This was a perfect springboard for the project I created today. I thought this would make a nice table centerpiece or mantle decor reminding me of goodness.
If you have the airbrush system....this is the project for you!
First of all the paper, yummy goodness by Graphic 45. You can probably tell by now how much I enjoy this paper line. If you are looking for a good place to purchase it...try Joy and Daisy at Eclectic Paperie! They now ship direct to Canada....so we Canadians can get a little paper lovin'!

All the letters are grungeboard I then painted them with white crackle paint then airbrushed them with R27 for this pretty red. I airbrushed the grungeboard flowers too and used my markers to make my white ribbon match.
The sentiment is from the "All things Fall" set in the Rummage Bin at Cornish Heritage Farms.
Here are another few images from "All things Fall", colored with my copics. My favorite part on this panel is the airbrushed bird on grungeboard.
This panel I had quite of bit of thinking....A is for apple....but that didn't quite seem enough. ABUNDANCE, yes! I combined the two thoughts and stamped the "kissable tree" in the same white crackle paint then....you guessed it....airbrushing fun!
I picked up a DYMO label gun last week to use when I don't have the right stamp sentiment. It is perfect in the black and white here.
N...for nature. I wanted a more rustic look on this panel. Stamping the moose and laying the flowers over top.

My last panel...and probably my favorite. Kindness....something we receive, but also something we give away....

Enjoy a THANKFUL TUESDAY!

This project is gorgeous, thanks so much for sharing it and adding all the tips. Got me thinking ... could do one season on one side, a different season on the other. My Mom had a couple of wood art items that all you had to do was flip them over for a change of seasons decoration. That way you get double duty out of some of that great hardware.
