Today is Thanksgiving in the US. A time to reflect on what we are thankful in our lives. While the turkey is in the oven cooking I had some time to play. I used the Off the Page project from November's kit at Flying Unicorn.
A 10x10 stretched burlap canvas from Canvas Corp was the base for this.
GEsso was swiped randomly, misted with Olive Vine Glimmer mist and then some Pan Pastels rubbed through a Crafter's Workshop stencil.

Once those layers were dry I used Gel Medium to apply some sewing pattern paper and then misted with Latte Glimmer mist. The layering then began. Tape and paper strips from Teresa Collins, words from the die cut sheet and Cosmo Cricket stickers. The flowers from Prima and wood from Kaisercraft.
 In the right upper corner I put a small banner inked with Olive Vine ink and added this adorable wooden bird also by Prima.
  Finally my favorite idea on the page...hold your love ones close.
 May you all have a wonderful holiday surrounded by those you love the most.

Happy Thanksgiving.
