a season of Blessings 22

Hi there! This time of year seems to fly by so fast. Before we know it, we'll be ringing in the new year! I combined a couple different PTI stamp sets to create a trio of Autumn inspired cards to mail off to my loved ones.
I dry embossed the background using an oldie but goldie embossing folder :)

For color inspiration, I joined along with the current the paper players challenge:
 and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Pals Paper Arts challenge:
It's Day 14 of 30 in 30:
Up next is a 5" x 7" painting featuring a pear that was inspired by an online art lesson presented byHall Groat Oil Painting Video DVD course. The lesson is about color theory and harmony. This particular painting focuses on COOL/WARM HARMONY A cool/warm harmony is a four-color scheme involving opposing colors. It’s based on a single pair of neighboring warm colors and a single pair of neighboring cool colors.
Still having fun learning how to incorporate the use of a palette knife. It just adds a whole new look and dimension. I'm also getting brave using more bold brushstrokes:

I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)
