Happy Thanksgiving to Those who Celebrate Today

 Hi everyone.

To those who celebrate, Happy Thanksgiving. I really love this holiday because other than food, (and food is always a good thing), it is a low pressure celebration.

There is so much to be thankful for also,  including all of you, my blog friends. Even though I haven't actually met most of you, I feel like I know you, and thank you for stopping by and visiting as well as being part of my life.

Today I have a festive fall page to share .

I sprayed the background with a few colors of spray inks. Then I used some yellow mesh paper pieces that I glued down, overlaying them in a collage style. 

The 2 large paper leaves were also glued down and then outlined with a black Stabilo pencil.  I added the vintage turkey image and stamped the autumn tree. Finally I added a piece of washi tape and the quote block, which is stamped on some white paper and then cut into the square.

I am linking up this beautiful fall day piece to Chris' All Kinds of Weather challenge at Art Journal Journey
and also to day 25 of Leah's Art Every Day Month challenge.

As I mentioned yesterday, we are off to my sister-in-laws over in Maine. Her husband is a professional chef and baker, so I might just come home weighing about 10 extra pounds. Smile.

Here's my pre-dinner contribution and yesterday's edible art project.

The body is a bacon and cheese dip. The head could be eaten, but it is just cream cheese and chopped pecans. I'm not sure I would ever win any sculpture projects.

Have a wonderful holiday if you celebrate, and if not, have a wonderful day also.

And thank you for visiting my blog too!!!

First of all Happy Thanksgiving.
I love your edible sculpture - how wonderful os that? And it must taste incredible too - bacon and cheese dip and pecans.
What a great way to celebrate Thanksgiving with that fab page with the turkey. Love turkey pictures at this time of the year and you certainly chose a beauty.

Your turkey looks wonderful to me - that would be a great starter for a Thanksgiving meal. I also like your fall page, you used such warm and beautiful colors. We are off to celebrate with friends in a couple hours. Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving. Your appetizer is very clever and almost too cute to eat.

Happy rest of Thanksgiving, dear Erika. I love your journal page. It is both beautiful and heartfelt. Thanks for sharing it on AJJ using Chris's theme.

You have a thing for turkeys, apparently. First, in your journal page, and then, for your cheese ball. That's the best and cleverest cheese ball I've ever seen. Wonderful and fun, too. I bet it went over well.

Iris Flavia said...

That is a great quote, thanks & giving!
And wow, that turkey is too beautiful to eat!
To me you are such a winner, wow!!! And bacon and cheese! Yummy!
I thank you for all the smiles :-)
