Fall Wreathe by Guest Designer Dawn Lotharius

Today Dawn Lotharius leaves us with one final project. We've so enjoyed having her with us as our Guest Designer this month and I'm sure you've enjoyed her projects as much as we have!

Thanks again Dawn for being a part of our Rubber Cafe' family and sharing a bit of yourself as well!

Now here's Dawn!!

I am so excited to be here sharing  another project for The Rubber Cafe today!  I love the stamps and products I chose to share today, they are the Leaf Set 1, and Indian Corn.    Enjoy! 

  Aren't these the perfect stamps for paper piecing??? I know I had so much fun making this wreath.

Before stamping  the leaves and Indian Corn many times on watercolor paper...I used Color Gelatos in several colors all over the paper and used a Deluxe Water Brush to swirl and spread the color.

Then all I had to do was stamp and fussy cut them out.

Can you see the glitter that was sprinkled in various areas...I actually sprinkled over the areas where I glued the leaves You're So Fine Glitter - Copper

I like to put almost all my glitters in salt and pepper shakers that make them pretty to put out to view and also easier to use for me.

And here's another look at the final project! 
I used a 7" grapevine wreath, and added ribbon to embellish it. 

Thank you so much for allowing me to be a guest this month...I have enjoyed all the products I chose and I know I will be using them again and again.

Ink: Faber-Castell -Color Gelatos ,Deluxe Water Brush
