I've had this paper mache pumpkin in my stash for at least of couple of years! I knew I would need it one day.....I started by giving it a coat of white gesso, before spritzing it with Daffodil Baseboard paint. Love the way the paint drips look.

Next I painted  the top and also the bottom of the pumpkin with Orange High Impact Paint, and left to dry.

I used one of the new Glimmer Mists in Golden Lime to add the greenery to the top of the pumpkin, making sure there were pools of the mist, so that as I dried it with a heat tool, the Glimmer Mist would melt into the pain below, and bubble would form, just like the texture on a real pumkin. Love this effect.

I love the burlap bunting that Canvas Corp Brands make. It's double sided and stitched around the edge, so very sturdy to work on. You can use loads of product, and it keeps it's shape really well. I gave it a coat of white gesso, dried it off and then added splashes of the Daffodil Baseboard Paint.

No I don't like things that look too clean, I love a vintage look to my projects, so using Black High Impact Paint on my work mat, I used the paint pot lid to create circles randomly. I love the thicker splodges, and again when I heat dried these, bubbles formed.

I added a piece of Ephemera from the Rouge Salvage Pack from the Architextures range, along with black sequins and some paper raffia, in a straw colour. And to hang the piece two black shower rings with clips on.

Really love the way these turned out, and they are ow added to my fall home decor.
