Paint the canvas with Pumpkin paint. Dip the stipple brush into the Tangerine paint, tap the bush over the canvas to make a mottled look. Dip the same brush into Orange Extreme Glitter, tap onto the canvas in a random fashion. Allow to dry.

Tape off the lower section of the canvas with low tac tape. Paint the lower section French Vanilla. Allow to dry and remove the tape.

Dip the spouncer into Coffee Bean paint, tap off the excess and paint dots were the two colors meet.

Make a flower by tearing scrapbook paper into random sized circles. Crinkle the circles. Hot glue the circles together beginning with the large one on the bottom. Glue a gem to the center. Cut the book pages into leaf shapes. Glue ribbon tabs and paper leaves around the flower.

Glue ribbon to form a stem to the canvas, add ribbon tab leaves. Glue the flower to the top of the stem.

Hot glue ribbon around the outer edge of the canvas. Stick the rhinestone word “thankful” to the lower portion of the canvas.
