Paisley Pumpkin with Jen Matott

Hi crafty friends! 

I have an altered art project for you today.  I had a paper mache pumpkin that I picked up at a craft store and wanted to create a fun home decor piece with it.  So, I got out a dress pattern tissue piece and stamped the Paisley Rose stamp on it with a Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Pen in black. The ink is India Ink so it dries permanent!  That is important for the next step!

 Because the ink is permanent, you can apply the piece onto the pumpkin form with a wet adhesive without worrying about smearing or running inks.

 I took the stamped pattern tissue and decoupaged it onto the pumpkin form with adhesive.

 Once the pumpkin was dry, I added dots of Scrap Happy Glue to the center of each rose.  Jellie Dots (Root Beer, Black Soot, and Golden) were added using the Stick 'Em Up tool.  Then, I added dots of white Puffies with a small tip.  This stuff is so cool!!!  It starts out liquid and can be applied small but once heat hits it, it puffs up and creates a shape that is twice the size of the applied shape and becomes matte.  It grows before your eyes... really fun!

 I applied the Scrap Happy Glue to the stem and when mostly dry, I applied the You're So Fine Glitter in Bronze.

 I love the texture of the Puffies and the contrast with the black stamped image on the kraft background of the pumpkin!  This decor piece can go from Halloween through Thanksgiving!
