It’s the Shake Pumpkin, Charley Brown.
Who needs crazy carving knives when you have the Queen & Co. Tag Kit and Toppings? The circle tag makes a great pumpkin, just in time for patch season.
I die cut several tags and used the center negative space from a few as flat background pumpkins. I then created shakers for the foreground gourds. Since the tops of pumpkins are often a light brown color, I wrapped the top of one of my die cut tags in twine to mimic the stem.
For the other, I trimmed a portion of the tag away and then adhered epoxy circles to create my stem.
For my page background, I created a DIY pumpkin using my watercolor paints, some twine, and and orange gel pen. I used a large lid as my stencil and went around it several times with my pen, moving the lid ever so slightly between each go ‘round. I then dry-brushed some orange paint onto the page. If you look closely, you’ll see I also framed the upper left and lower right corners of the pumpkin with blue paint.
To give my flat background a little lift, I hand-stitched around the pumpkin using twine.
I cut the stem from patterned paper and the leaf from felt. The vine is a little green yarn.
This pic simply doesn’t do these sweet gems justice. Queen’s NAME accents are so shiny and pretty. They make any title more striking!
Tag, you’re it! I hope you have a blast picking your pumpkins this fall and scrapbooking your adventures after the fact.
