Welcome!

I am glad you chose to visit! My blog is a compilation of the many hats I find myself wearing. On any given day I may be an encourager, an instructor, or just a lady who is venting. You, dear reader, will probably identify with my triumphs and my tribulations! These snapshots fit into my Life Scrapbook I have named A. McInnis Artworks. I hope you will find something worth your while.

Blog "Give Away" Canvas : The "Thanks" Pumpkin


Well, here it is! A 7"x7" canvas for the lucky winner of my first blog "Give Away." All you have to do is register as a "Follower."
I enjoyed making this and I must admit the colors are much more vivid than the picture is showing. I am using a borrowed computer and don't have Photoshop to make the image show as it really does, but you get the idea, I hope.
I used a combination of papers, acrylics and ink to craft this "Thanks" pumpkin. It's burnished with gold and the green leaves are torn handmade paper. The "curly ques" were cut with the Cricut. The backing paper is some beautiful scrapbook paper I ran across a while back. This will look pretty in somebody's den or kitchen for the autumn season. I hope you like it. I plan to draw the winner in the next week or so. Just my way of saying "Thanks" for reading my nonsense!
