Plaid Fall

It was supposed to be mixed media.  Drip drip drip, for MIX30, drip.  I'm looking @ my page and wondering what the second medium is...did I also sponge on some ink...looks like ink @ the bottom of the corn.  hmmmm....well, I really don't know. 
So, I used four colors of Mister Huey & dripped lines on watercolor paper!  It's a busy pattern, but isn't plaid busy? 

I dripped the night before.  The next day I played with Cameo!  She cut out the pumpkin, the corn fodder and the "FALL" title.  The leaves were on a birthday cake Dale got me several years ago...these were the last three left!  To tone down my plaid...ahem...I sprayed three of the same colors on the dripped design.  I also misted the corn before I attached it to the layout! 
That adorable kiddo is Phillip...five years old.  He was pushing his van around the yard...and stopped at the fall display...to pose for a picture.  I'm glad he did. 
The sketch was a bonus / challenge sketch from the Studio Calico TOOLBOX Classroom!
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a moo'valous day!
