Through the Window
Through the Window is the theme over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges this week. I thought and thought about this one and as I was approaching my front door, looking through the window of the storm door I thought about how bare my horseshoe wreath looks without the Christmas lights that originally came on it.
I took off the lights after the holidays in January and left it up with nothing. So, I decided to make a Sunset mum and some leaves to put on it for the Thanksgiving season! I chose my colors with the challenge over at Color my Heart as inspiration.
My cuts are from Art Philosophy, Artbooking, Artiste, and Artistry.
To give my sentiment a little more pop, I heat embossed it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder and VersaMark. (For an interesting embossing technique I used recently, see this post!)
I used the Floral Embossing Folder on my banner and I embellished with some Black Epoxy Bubbles, a black button from Mini-Medley Accents Black and twine from my stash.
I have to say, it's nice to have some fall color when I look through the storm door window at my front door when I drive by my house! I'm sure my visitors and the guys delivering my crafting supplies will appreciate some new seasonal decor greeting them!
I have recently found a very creative site: Through the Craft Room Door. I'm sending my wreath that direction to their Anything Goes Challenge!
