I used an 11X14 Frame with some fun Fall Paper out of an extra large Heidi Grace Paper Pad that is 12X18 inches cut to fit as the Background.
I'm Cooked. I splattered the pot with white paint (what a mess but like the outcome) I placed all of the tail feathers how I wanted them and then placed some scotch tape on the back to keep them positioned and ran them through my Cuttlebug Swirls Folder. For his sign I used my Cricut Brown marker pen to spell out YIKES! then went over it dashed style in white Gel Pen, I ran the sign through Cuttlebug Forest Branches sideways to give it a wood look and on his wings to give them a textured look. Also used my white gel pen to accent the eyes. For the fire and wood under the pot I used cuts from Cricut Potpourri Basket Cartridge. I had to do some customizing and cutting to get the fire out in front of the pot. Still thinking I may play with and fix that better still :)
The Adorable Squirrel And Acorn Nuts are from Too Cute by Jessica, Nutty For Fall.
I used my Cuttlebug Simply Charmed Squares Folder for embossing the Acorn Tops. I used my white gel pen to accent the eyes and nose on the adorable squirrel. I also blushed his cheeks lightly with a peach colored chalk and added 3 whisker dots to each cheek with a brown colored pencil. I wrapped a light colored sheer ribbon at the top of my frame tied in a simple knot and added some raffia to give a fall look. I wanted to add a button in the center but did not think the glass would allow for that. I placed all of that inside the frame and closed it up, but first slid my wide brown ribbon under the glass and again tied a simply knot in the center. I took a piece of fun shiny orange ribbon and tied it around the brown knot with tails going in opposite direction. Took some more raffia and cut it into sprigs and added that to the front of my ribbon knots with some Brown and white Bakers Twine. I used the same twine to hang my adorable tag from. The Orange tag is a cut from Cricut Very Merry Tags, I added that custom topper I made myself in brown that I also ran through the CB Simply Squared Embossing folder to match with the acorns.
The awesome Sentiment stamp is from Craftin Desert Divas called Simply Holiday's Word Art... I love this set and just received it yesterday :) Plus I got the Free SVG background layer for the stamp from CDD on FB too. What a fabulous touch it gives and I was able to pop it up on Foam dots to give such dimension. I used my water color pencils to color in some things on the stamped image and then used my water brush pen to blend it together a bit. Oh back up the bow that sticks out, I used a spellbinder's die for the pretty medallion then I added a beautiful Pumpkin I cut from Cricut Thanksgiving Cartridge
