canvas pumpkin painting…

jennifer rizzo posted a detailed pumpkin painting tutorial.  I tried it, and it was fun and fast to do.
I used her color palette--aqua, white, brown, and green, and I painted it on a canvas board. it turned out ok, but, …it’s pretty colorful for my room.

so, I took a picture of my painting, and printed out in grayscale onto printable canvas,

and now it works in my room:)
it makes a good fall header, too.

  1. As soon as I clicked here I fell in love with your new header.....I can't believe you painted it then printed your own in the colors/non-colors of your choice. Love it! Perfect for your space...actually, perfect for mine, too! :)

  9. Hi Lynn. Oh I just love your pumpkin painting and how you added it for the header too. The colors you used are perfectly shabby and I love the grayscale version.
    Beautiful job. Have a great weekend.
    Hugs!

  10. I did it too! Mine ended up with too much orange because I thought I wanted some orange. Anyway, I toned it down some, and have really enjoyed it! Love the way yours looks in color and grayscale!

  15. Okay, I have to ask. . . What did you do with the one you painted originally? I love the one you chose for your home, but the one you painted matches mine! Any thoughts of selling it? Beautiful work, both times.

  16. Okay, I have to ask. . . What did you do with the first one, the one you painted? I love the one you did for your house, but your first version would match my house perfectly! Any thoughts on selling it? Great job, both times!

  18. Well aren't you clever! I love the soft colors of your original painting and would never have thought to make a copy in grayscale to transfer to another canvas. I need to work on my computer skills. :)

  19. How fun! I need to take a cue from you and do more seasonal headers...
