The Good Life with pumpkins

Even though I am in denial about summer ending my card making would disagree. I have seen leaves changing colour and there is a nip in the air. I’m not against autumn; I know everyone loves it, I just don’t like to see summer go! This little autumn scene combines the Penny Black stamps, ‘the good life’ and ‘pumpkin patch’.

I worked in the stamp positioner for this one and there was masking involved too. I lightly stamped just the barn first, cut a mask for the roof then stamped an extra tree behind the barn. I also painted the back field in peeled paint and wild honey before returning to the trees and barn. I used the ink, stamp & blend process to build up the scene. I made sure I didn’t stamp the fence or track leading to the barn as I was planning to stamp something in the foreground. It turned out to be pumpkins which also needed to be masked before I added the fence and track.

If you know your distress inks you could probably make some pretty accurate guesses as to the line up used on this panel. I added a bit of pencil colouring to the pumpkins and some little leaves along side them.

    This is beautiful – your painting is always so realistic! Autumn/Fall and then Spring are my favorites! Summer is just too hot for this old lady, lol! Lived 45 years in FL, and the heat, humidity and huge bugs finally got to us so we moved out to CO three years ago. It gets pretty warm and pretty cold out here but we have little to no humidity so you can’t feel it so much. Different strokes for different folks! šŸ˜‰

    Love those shades of autumn with the wonderful trees and pumpkins, and a beautifully coloured scene too with the barn as the focal image Heather. x
