I have been overcome with the incredible colors falling all around us here and can’t stop taking pictures and sharing them!!! For those of you in the middle of different seasons right now…just wait…fall will come to you sometime too!!
Recently we made “Happy Fall”cards to send to dear family. I cut drawing paper 3 1/2” x 10 1/2” which, when folded in half fits wonderfully into a standard envelope! I drew a line lightly with pencil and each little (and big) thumb made a print. We used basic acrylic stencil paint, which washes off easily and is non-toxic, etc! When they were dry we erased the pencil line and we had four little pumpkins! I drew a stem on one pumpkin and then gave the job to little hands while I went to tend to something. When I came back we had very long pumpkin stems!! Which was delightful!
Momma: “Wow…you did a great job with drawing all those lines. Our pumpkins have tall stems now!!
Little Miss: “Well…I like to do things differently than you sometimes Mom.”
…and that was that!!!
I was a little worried that they looked a bit more like upside down balloons than pumpkins so I drew very simply over them with black ink. Somehow it was just what was needed and I really like the look of our little pumpkin family!
