My hometown in Illinois has a Scarecrow festival each fall, with a scarecrow contest. The last one I attended, a few weeks before we moved, was in 2015. This lovely creation was built by the staff of a gift store in the historic north-end business district and was my favorite entry in the contest:
I scrapped her two year ago, but I wasn't all that thrilled with the layout and decided to create a new layout, using sketch 296 from Sketches in Thyme:
I used the Amber Moon collecton from Prima and a few things from my stash:
I used chalk ink and distress crayons for the shading, then added some stamped distressing and some watercolor splatters to jazz up the plain background. I made the gold circles by tracing the bottom of a small plastic cup with a fine point gold ink pen and then outlining with gold glitter glue (hadn't used the glue in a while; it was fun!)
Thanks for stopping by; have a great week!
