Give Thanks with Petaloo and Authentique!

I have to stop and give thanks for all the good people and things that fill my life. I really need to take the time to count my blessings more often; I think this wall plaque will serve as a reminder.

I use Authentique's Harvest papers along with a plethora of Petaloo blooms.  I can never have too many flowers; after all, I am a flower child of the 60's, LOL LOL!!  So....I started my project by first applying Prima texture paste over a cork cover plate charger.  When that dried, the plate had a crackled effect.  Then I selected several Lindy's Starburst mists in autumn colors and misted the plate.

Next I created a banner with stickers from the collection.  To give those stickers more pizzazz, I mounted them on slightly larger banners that I cut out.  Then I nestled the banner in a bed of Petaloo flowers and burlap flall leaves.

Here you can see the crackled effect over the cork, love how that looks!  For fall color, I mixed in several different styles of Petaloo blooms (see my product list of supplies at the end) along with an older Petaloo berry branch and berries from the leaf berry clusters.  Then I finished it off with a bright bow.
