Fall Fun Series: Fall Craft + Melts

Today's theme for the Fall Fun Series is a fall craft. I used to do a lot of crafting prior to getting into nail polish. I am absolute crap at art, but crafting I could do. I'm not great at it, but I always enjoyed decoupage and made quite a few decorative keepsake boxes and picture frames for friends several years ago. I decided to revisit decoupage and do some wall art today for my fall craft. I love wall art and I'd much rather make my own than pay for it! I made this fall leaves collage on canvas. It wasn't completely dry when I took this photo because I was running out of time! I'm hoping in a few days when the Mod Podge completely cures and sets it will look better!
I used a 20x20 canvas and decoupaged a few different scrapbooking papers as the background using Satin Mod Podge. I wanted to stick to this green, rust, brown, and copper color scheme. I crumpled up the papers first to give it an aged look and some dimension on the canvas. The golden/rust maple leaves I bought that way. The rest of the leaves I painted using a mix of metallic brown and antique copper acrylic paint and topped off with some extra fine chestnut glitter. The leaves do stick out from the canvas which gives it a bit of a 3D effect. It was an inexpensive and fun little project. I enjoyed doing it and it really sparked an interest in me to revisit this craft!

It's only been a few days since our last melt round-up so I haven't melted much new since! These will be reviewed on Sunday's Weekly Wax Wrap Up post.
