What I've been workin' on...

I should be doing other things but had to finish this cute OOAK tealight pumpkin centerpiece....I think it came out so cute. The leaves are hand dyed by colorwashing with green acrylic paint and coffee/vanilla/cinnamon mixture. The pumpkin was also done the same way....I gathered up the top part of the pumpkin just enough to fit a painted/sealed tealight. I added a piece of fabric to cover up the polyfill.,,,Spanish moss and pip berries were placed on top for that harvest look.....I added a sunflower tag stamped in sepia ink and attached it to a piece of burlap near the leaves with a rusty pin & bell. Natural grapevine twine was also added. A sweet crow crowns the punkin' too. It's 6 1/2 inches tall by 8 inches wide. It will be available at Canal Country Artisans Shoppe in Medina, NY hopefully either this week or next week.
