Wow how time flies! It seems like I was just here yesterday. Oh yeah it was yesterday 😀
So today is day 2 of my 4 days of DT shares. I am hoping that somehow, someone, somewhere is actually reading these besides me. Not because I need followers, but because I truly want to do well for Deb. She has a really nice store and is a great person. Once she is back from her trip you really should take a look at all the things she has for sale. In the meantime you can watch some of the Ustream classes. Today’s share is all FALL. Did you know that in addition to laces, bling and kits Deb carries appliques? She has a bunch of different ones, from crowns, baby carriages, snowflakes, flowers and leaves. When I saw those I decided I wanted to use them to make something. First up is a scarecrow, I used Tracey’s scarecrow from The Stamping Boutique to make a cute file and then I used Fan dangle lace to make the ‘straw’. I think he turned out SUPER CUTE. In fact I made a few of them. Because I used a cut file I was able to make them different sizes. Notice here that they have different hair cuts 😀

I took these and used them for 2 different projects. The first one I used on a card, I also used some of Deb’s leaf appliques on it. The sentiment inside reads “May your Blessings be as many as the falling leaves”. This version of the scarecrow is just over 3 inches so his he fit perfectly on here.
The next version I used more of the leave appliques and one of Deb’s pots, to make the base for this table display.12016477_10200726744606608_72425501_n12048640_10200726745766637_1770240461_n
I used some of the seam binding from Gone Artsy to simulate the leaves swirling around him. A few cut out pumpkins on tooth picks, and the scarecrow himself are poked into a foam base that I covered with 2 different doilies ( also from Gone Artsy ). The pot was painted and crackled, leave appliques were cut apart and colored, then toned down with a weak tea bath. The flower center is from the Victorian Fan lace left overs from cutting out fans for the dress. This project was really fun and easy. I can see adding candy corn to the pot once it gets closer to the end of Oct.
Well that’s it for todays share. If you want info on the cut file or a detailed list of Gone Artsy items used just message me. Please leave comments ( good or bad ), you never know if or when I may hold a random give away for a GC from Gone Artsy.
See you tomorrow.

    So cute, Miki! Thank you for including the Companies were you purchase your supplies, it helps us newbies to know there is more resources….

  2. Hi Miki- I Love your scarecrows! They are all adorable. I love the one in the pot. I am guessing I need a special machine to do the cut files. I don’t have a Silhouette or Cricket machine. I do love all the lovely items I can buy from Debs store, As for the directions— I had a hard time following them because the paragraphs ran together so it was difficult for me to understand the directions. For me it would have been better if you listed out the steps and numbered them or something like that. I still think the project came out super cute! Keep coming up with these ideas and I will be back for more!

    • Kay,
      I am sorry you had trouble following along. I will work on that. As for cutting I used my Pazzles but you could just trace and cut by hand. He is a fun and easy to fussy cut guy. I got him from Tracey at The Stamping Boutique. Thanks for commenting as I learn from every one.
