Feeling Country with Graphic45

Good Morning all,

I hope you all had a great weekend. :D  This weekend we had a fantastic time celebrating an early Thanksgiving with our family in West Texas. This was the first time in 10 years we have all been able to come together at the same time. We also had family pictures done outside in the gorgeous sun, the weather was beautiful (a bit windy but nice). Needless to say lots of "Good Food". Mmmmm and Yummy desserts. Speaking of Food this brings me to my next project that I made specifically for my kitchen decor. : D

Please join us at All Crafts Challenge For Oct/Nov. Challenge. Here is my Midway Oct/Nov I finally got the chance, as I used a cute little Woodware Basket that Eileen had sent to me for using in my projects for our Challenges at All Craft Challenge.

I had bought this Graphic 45 French Country paper a long time ago, with the intention of making some kitchen decor items from this beautiful country set.
Hope you don't mind looking through all the pictures. But I wanted to make sure I caught every nook & cranny, so to speak. : )
This is a wall decor, which I plan to add some wire to it so it will hang in the kitchen. I still need to make a few more pieces to go along with my decor.

Paper - Graphic 45 French Country; SU summer sun (used for Sunflowers); Used Burlap; Used thick card board (covered with G45 paper)
Ink/Paint - TH Distress - vintage photo; used Smooches pearlized accent - molasses; TH Distress stain - antique bronze; TH Distress Paint - Frayed Burlap and Antique Linen; Americana acrylic paint- Fawn and a little bit of Creative Expressions Metallic Gildiing Wax - Enchanted Gold.
Accessories - Woodware - Basket; Stickles - Cinnamon; TH accessories - brads and clips
From Stash - Dry Wall Metal Sheet Patch (self adhesive) behind the Rooster and folded in the corner with a sunflower: Brick stencil on the basket with Ranger Texture paste
