Burlap Voyage

So today is the first day of September! Summer is still here for about 3 more weeks, but most of us see Autumn as the beginning of this month. So my thoughts are turning to the holiday sales and shows for gifts and decorations. Here is an example:

I used a lot of different things from my stash including Dylusions Spray inks, Tim holtz ink, embellishments and ephemera, a little bit of 7 Gypsies ephemera, and DecoArt Texture Medium Fierro. what fun to pull so many different things together into a theme!
After turning off the camera, I changed my NoSale Cash Tag to a $7 tag with an orange background. I added an old photo, and some stamps and tickets. I think I'm satidfied with it now. It's so much fun to create something with just a few random items and no real idea of where you want it to go!




                         I inked the letters and the edges of the panel with Forest Moss Distress Ink.



After the camera was turned off, here are the changes and final tweeks I made!
