In The Apple Orchard for Art By Mi Ran Challenge 18

Happy Day to everyone!! I hope you have had a great week and are ready for a fun weekend. I have to share with you that our weekend is threatened with that bad word SNOW!!!! Gosh, it's too early in these mountains for that white stuff...eeeeek!!

Today is the start of Challenge 18 at the Art By Mi Ran Challenge and as always anything goes. So come on over and join in with us so we can see your lovely creations. It had been quite some time for me to make a scene card. This little Miss Apple image kept whispering to me that she wanted to be in the apple orchard!!


I started with the blue background and added a wood textured frame cut with Layering Squares and propped up with dimensional tape to give dimension and depth to the scene. Inside the frame I added a pretty SRTC chipboard tree NAT-333 which I cut to fit within the frame. I painted the tree with brown acrylic paint before embossing the top with three shades of green embossing powder. I added a couple of die cut clouds for the sky and mixed greens of FlowerSoft for the ground. I then added some tiny die cut apples for the tree. I had to really concentrate to color the stems of those apples...lol The sweet image was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding Glossy Accents to her apples. I also die cut more apples and an apple basket for the foreground. All that was left to add was a fluffy triple gingham bow to the left side. And that's my scene card for a while!!!! I would love to hear what you think of it!!!

WINNER!!

Wow, cutting and coloring all those apples must have taken forever!
Love the woodgrain frame. Did you use store-bought textured paper of do you have an embossing folder? The woodgrain looks so fine...
