"Frightfully Fall" Blog Hop Featuring the Creative Team and a Giveaway!

Hi all!  I'm so excited because it's the FIRST blog hop with members of the Jessica Sporn Designs Creative Team. 

Today I'm hopping along with 


to share some fall creations using my stamps and stencils. 

I hope you've been enjoying the Creative Team posts - I know I have! Here's a chance to see five of these amazing artists all at once!

AND....

We have a great giveaway - one lucky commenter will win my Cascading Leaves stencil and Tree of Life stamp. 


All comments on all the blog hop posts count - so make sure to visit everyone and leave some kind words for a chance to win! 

Without further ado, here's my project!

I have TOO MANY canvas bags from various retreats.  I decided to re-purpose one for my daughter to use on Halloween (instead of a pillowcase!).    I started out by loosely painting DecoArt fabric paint in yellow and orange on the bag, using a foam roller.


I then used red paint and my Lacy Lotus stencil to create a background.


 I used my Shiva stencil to create a strong focal image, and the Borders stencil for a top border.


 On the other side, I used the Horned Owl stencil for my focal image.


I stamped the straps using my Mercurial Mercury and Topsy Topiary stamps from Rubbermoon.  
Check out the whole process in this 3 minute video. 



(See more videos and examples of how I used the Shiva stencil  and Horned Owl stencils.)

I hope this gave you some ideas to kickstart your fall crafting. 

Now, hop over to 


to see their fall creations!

Remember, all comments on all the blog hop posts count!    Comments close at 9PM EST on Monday, October 10/10, and I'll announce the winners in my Tuesday blog post on 10/11.

  5. tapestryofcolor@yahoo.com Great re-purpose of a canvas bag! I usually make bags for my grand daughters and I do embroidery on them and use felt pieces to cover up any large designs. Painting and stenciling them woud be lots faster and easier! Great idea! ~Gin K~

  17. Jessica, this was so much fun. I just happen to have a couple white bags and I'm going to give it a try. I don't have fabric paint so I'll try with acrylic. Hope it's 1/4 as cute as yours is. Thanks for sharing your talent!! deb
