#grateful...Guest Designing at A Vintage Journey 23

Hi there! Today I can finally share some exciting news with you! I'm so excited, honored and grateful to be the Guest Creative Guide at A Vintage Journey for the current Bountiful Harvest challenge. Please be sure to visit the A Vintage Journey blog to see ALL the fantastic projects that the talented DT has created as well as a step by step tutorial that I share on how I created my project!
Our wonderful hostess is Sandy and in her words: "With Halloween's passing we step into fall. For this challenge let's think about the harvest. It seems that pumpkins, wheat, corn and even the Harvest Moon could be in order. For us in the US - a Thanksgiving theme could work but not necessary."

For my sample, I was inspired to create a canvas featuring a textured pumpkin:
Here are a few details:
The collage cardstock background was made using a Tim Holtz embossing folder which I then applied various Tim Holtz Distress Stains and Tim Holtz Distress Paints to:
The texture on the pumpkin was created using Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint:
