AUTUMN ART PARTY

Welcome to the Autumn Art Party. The party is hosted by French Cupboard, go to see more here. Thanks French Cupboard for hosting. I can't wait to see what others have been up to. I've been busy and inspired by the fall weather that has come all to quickly. Fall is in the air and Halloween will be here soon. I have created this piece using a very old antique book cover. I will be sending this item off very soon for a swap I have entered. I was very busy today making SPOOKY ANCESTOR HALLOWEEN GARLANDS. I managed to make four this afternoon.
I used copies of images from my personal collection. These garlands were inspired by Minyele for my 50th birthday party. Minyele invited all the ancestors and non related friends. I copied the idea and made it a Halloween theme.
I added birds, owls and boney people to the mix. I had fun making the garland. I plan to put a few in my shop on etsy, go here if your interested.
Some of the birds have glittered witch's hats and bowties.
I have been inspired to do some fall decorating around the house as well. My favorite item to decorate, my rusty olde truck!!
I hope you enjoyed my Autumn Art Party. Don't forget to go over to French Cupboard to look at what others have been inspired to do for fall.
Thanks for stopping by.

you have some wonderful things here. I see your Chinese lanterns, do you grow them? I do and they are such a nuisance, if it weren't for the fact they are so pretty in the fall I would take the RoundUp to them! happy autumn!
