“I Heart Autumn” Framed Heart
First Cut

“I Heart Autumn” Framed Heart


Autumn is my favorite season.  I love sweater weather, the crisp, cool air,  and the sound of leaves crunching under my boots.  Love it!  For the challenge I decided to make something to hang in my home that will remind me of the season I adore.
Washed out color and watercolor looks have been popular so far this year, and I really enjoy that fresh, soft look! Also, there’s been a lot of white on white.  On white.  I thought it would be fun to pair the two trends together with some pretty fall colors.  I sketched my shapes with a waterproof pen by replacing my blade with the new pen holder.  Then I popped my blade back in, and cut around the sketch to make a thought bubble.  After it was all cut out, all I needed to do was  simply “color” in the lines with a paintbrush and some watercolors!
It’s super easy to do and I love that it looks artsy, and I’m totally not an artist!  I can’t wait to see all of your fun fall projects!  Good luck!

  1. Just wanna say that it does not allow you to tell something about your entry when you do not have an URL. So here goes: For my entry I’ve used: ppbn zombie boy (Design ID #47397 ), 5×7 shadow box by Lori Whitlock (Design ID #26222 ), echo park halloween sky by Echo Park (Design ID #17578) and zombie hands by Rivka Wilkins (Design ID #48133) I do believe that Halloween is a part of fall too – right? 🙂

  2. This was fun to enter. This is my first time playing. I love the pumpkin pillow boxes I created.

  3. Thanks to all who shared. I do not have time to comment on each one of your projects, but they are all fantastic!

  4. I’m trying to find the shapes used on the pumpkin bread wrap. The link isn’t valid anymore. TIA!

    1. I am looking for those shapes as well. Were you able to find them?

    2. I have linked the shapes under my part of the post. 🙂
