Shifting Light

Hello, Friends.  In NC, fall is in the air.  Even though the temperatures are reaching the high 70's, the shadows are longer and the sun has shifted.  The light seems filtered and looks lovely coming from that different angle.  How quickly it changes!  So to get you in the spirit of the fall season, I have a different sort of project to share with you today--an altered clipboard.  I chose to make the project very subtle, just like the changes I am observing each day.  No changing of colors, you understand, just the lovely lighting. But I was inspired by a Bearly Mine color challenge and used them all!


It was difficult to get a photo showing the glitter and shine of the piece.

Supplies:  acrylic and metallic paints--about 7 colors,  Spellbinders dies and EK Success punches for leaves, Shelly's Digital Image of a pumpkin, TAC Rubber Stamp leaves, and Mod Podge.


I hope to enter this project in the following challenges as well:
