Polka Dot Pumpkin Blog Hop

Welcome to the first day of the Zappy Dots blog hop!! I've created two projects to share with you.

My first project is a 7 Gypsies shadowbox with a picture of my nephew Milo dressed as a gnome. The papers and leaves are from my stash. The Zappy Dots flair buttons are from the Vintage Halloween set. Love these!!

My second project is a bird titled, "Time for Fall". The bird is from Michael's. I painted the edges, covered it with Gecko Galz paper and then inked it with brown chalk ink. I deconstructed some Prima flowers (took out the centers and only used half the blue flower). I applied fall leaf Zappy Dots to the centers of the flowers. The clock is also from Gecko Galz. The bird has a small black rhinestone for an eye.

The photo below shows the flowers in more detail.
