Amazing Altered Art from our Design Team!

Cornucopia, French Country, Maggi Harding, Graphic 45 (3)

Today is a day full of Fall fun! We have gorgeous autumn decor by Maggi Harding that is perfect for Thanksgiving and more. Then, Tanya Dudkina shared a beautiful Halloween mask that you can make yourself! So many fun ideas from our Design Team today!

First, check out this gorgeous French Country cornucopia by Maggi that would make a gorgeous centerpiece for the following days of autumn! Adore this!

"I wanted to make a small fall themed centerpiece and I found this sweet little cornucopia basket that I thought would be perfect to fill with sunflowers and raffia.  I fussy cut a rooster and sunflowers from the French Country collection and layered them in my basket along with a silk sunflower and some raffia.  I love the result, it is perfect for fall and you know, Thanksgiving will be here before you know it.

Tip:  When you have fussy cut images that will show from the back like my rooster, paint the back a solid color so that it will blend in. I painted the back of the rooster black and that blends in with the arrangement better than the pattern that was on the back." ~Maggi

"Hi! Today I prepared for you a mask you can add to your Halloween dress. I think this is so much fun to add colors and paints to a craft mask and create something absolutely unique with the help of G45 staples and Rare oddities papers. Do you like masks? What about make one for your Halloween party? I decided to add a Snapguide tutorial so you can try it too! My tip - use Chameleon sprays to add mysterious color to your mask." ~Tanya
