  1. WOW!!! Those leaves ROCK!!! Love those little children too! Awesome work! Thank you so much for playing along with Effect Powders for our challenge at CC3Challenge!!!

  2. Those leaves are fantastic! Love the title you've given this piece too... so appropriate! Thanks for joining in at CC3C, Jan.

  3. Jan...this is darling! I so love that you've done this creation on the burlap canvas. That really adds to the autumnal "natural" feeling of your piece. I love the little found relative trio that you've used on this. They are so cute! Love the twine wrapped around the canvas holding the word band. And I LOVE LOVE your leaves using the EP technique. They are gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing with all of us at CC3C. <3 Candy

  4. Brilliant, Jan. I love the way the little boys in black and white pop against those brilliantly colored leaves. Excellent use of Effect Powders technique. Thanks so much for sharing on the CC3Challenge. Love it!
