Thanksgiving Leftovers - November Paper Mixing Bowl DT Reveal -

It is time for the November reveal for the Paper Mixing Bowl's new challenge! Here is the wonderful sketch and recipe!!

Here is my take on the sketch!!

I kept the all neutral tone for the recipe, using lots of shades of cream and browns.

For my utensils: My found object is the metal filagree I have at the bottom of the photo under the butterfly, that was a thrift store purchase for pennies, I got a bunch of great metal pieces and broken jewelry for using on layouts and projects! My element from nature is a branch from a tree in our back garden up at the top of the page!! I added a nest up there for fun, and did some stamping of leaves, another ingredient! I made my own background by using a damask stencil and molding paste, and my final ingredient was the use of fiber which is there below the photo.

For my directions: I did a layout about my family, for which I am always thankful!! I included many elements of natures and outdoors, including a real branch and the beautiful backdrop of the Shannon River and Clare hills behind my family in the photo... I used a stamped sentiment for my journalling.

I had a lot of fun putting this together and used some flowers from Zva Creative and Manor House... I love those Prima light bulbs too and was fun to use those!! The paper clip is an embellie from Melody Ross, love it!!

Thanks for looking!!!
