A Fall Pumpkin with acrylic leaves~
November 18, 2013
I have a tutorial on making acrylic fall leaves, with a little kick. Let's get started~
* Take your acrylic sheet and adhere paper to it (in my case, I used old dictionary paper) using Beacon's Fast Finish Decoupage.
*I cut out leaves with my Big Shot using a Sizzix die (Tim Holtz's leaves).
* I used Ranger ink and adding many colors giving a leaf turning colors, in the Fall, effect.
*Hold the heat gun or hair dryer over the leaf (do one at a time) for a few minutes. When the acrylic is soft you can shape the leaf (giving it that kick I talked about).
*See how the tips of the leaf curled up~looks like a real leaf:)
I used the laeves along with some other leaves from S.E.I. and arranged them on the top of the pumpkin. Making a really pretty centerpiece for my table.

Soooo gorgeous! I love love love those leaves!!!
