'Tis the season for everything PUMPKIN! I used the "Pumpkin Patch" cut file from the store for this page about our visit to the patch!
I wanted the pumpkin to be the stand out element on the page, and because the lines were very detailed, I didn't want to cut it too small. In Silhouette Design Studio, I always draw boxes that are the size of my photos to help me gauge how big to cut a file. You can see that process in my video below.
Pumpkin Patch Cut File
I began by back the cut file (which I cut from white cardstock) with different patterns and shades of orange paper. For this particular file, I first traced each shape with a pencil and then cut it out and glued it to the file.
I wasn't thrilled about the white outline after I backed the file, so I went in with some watercolors and painted the white edges a corresponding color.
I used clear gesso on the background with some green inks and splatters.
Finally, I cut some simple leaf shapes from green paper and machine stitched over them to add some detail.
A few stickers and enamel dots finishes it off!

Thanks for watching and Happy Fall!
