I hope everyone is enjoying the fall weather. I know in some part of the country winter has already arrived, but here in El Paso, Texas, we are still having very nice days, a little bit of rain, and awesome sunsets.
For this post, I created a fall center piece using Canning Essentials Svg Kit. I got the inspiration from a project by Tammy Tutterow, but instead of using real glass, I used overhead transparencies. The paper I used was from the Paper Company. It was a gold embossed cardstock. To make the tall jar look vintage, I applied alcohol inks in Ginger, Caramel, and Butterscotch plus Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint to the transparency. I added an electronic candle in the middle and dried vegetables to make it sturdy. The addition of the light makes the "glass" glittery!
I cut out the leaves and acorns from the Harvest Blessings Card Kit. To the ribbon I added the same colors but with the Distress Stains to match the colors on the glass. I used fall colors of Distress Paints on the Leaves. These are from the Fall Ensemble Kit. The other leaves I die cut with three different Provo Craft dies. I also added two push pins, a peacock feather and small white pearls. The branches are also a Tim Holtz die cut.
The other two jars were made with transparencies and regular cardstock, one in brown and the other in a rust color. I cut out the decorative toppers from fabric "cardstock" I had in my stash and natural twine.
So there you have it, a fall center piece to enjoy over and over again throughout the years.
