Be Thankful...

Hello Creative Friends

No matter how grey they day, 
we ALL have something to be thankful for. 

Using unused die cuts & scraps here's a quick post 


I love how Kraft card absorbs distress oxides...


and how it stretches when coated in water. 
I can see right behind those trees now.


Placed inside a found frame gives these scraps 
a BIG HUG bringing them all together as one family...


As friends across the pond celebrate Thanksgiving 
and many prepare for upcoming festivities...

I wish you all a wonderful day

Take care of yourselves and each other
Creative Hugs Tracey xx

You really chose the perfect day for your gorgeous Thankful project. The background you created is so, so beautiful. Like you say, the oxides work wonderfully well against Kraft and make those silhouetted trees stand out beautifully. The leaves are gorgeous too and the frame sets the whole piece off. Just beautiful! I hope you have a wonderful and crafty weekend. Hugs, Anne xxx

Tracey, this is a lovely piece of artwork with it's muted fall theme! I love the blended oxides background and the simplicity of the die cuts layered over top. The fabric and stitching detail are perfect compliments to those Lovely Leaves!

Courtney said...

I love it! It's a creative, lovely piece of artwork. I haven't tried the oxides either, but would like to one of these days. It makes a nice display in the frame and I bet it looks great on display in your home. :) Hugs!
