Pumpkins Galore

The Great Pumpkin Challenge came to Oscraps this weekend and I was inspired to dig out an array of my pumpkins photos, especially the green and white ones from (can you believe it was that long ago!) 2007. I remember using them in a challenge of Dana's. I went back to my "painting" with photos concept except this time it wasn't flowers, but pumpkins. We also had to include a freebie pumpkin drawing with its color unchanged. I had so much fun with them. And this one isn't scary.

I went back and found the 2007 QP challenge of Dana Conditt that I did with some of these pumpkins. I don't remember all the requirements, but I know a scarecrow was one. We've been back to the apple farm a number of times since, but not this fall so far.


  1. I love your pumpkin painting collage! It took me a while to find the hand drawn pumpkin, but in my defense, I haven't had any coffee yet! And how fun to look back at the page you did for the challenge by Dana at Deco-Pages! We were going to go pick apples today, but I don't think the weather is going to cooperate, it's raining and cold now, but who knows, maybe it will change before late afternoon. Autumn is going so quickly! I wish it would slow down a little bit!

  2. What an awesome collection of pumpkins made into this cool painting collage. I saw some white and some blue looking pumpkins for the first time the other day at the United Grocery Store. If I would have had my camera, I would have taken pictures! I came across my challenge page page for this same challenge the other day. I had scarecrows from our trip to Branson and a picture of pumpkins and one of the grands dressed up. I'll have to post it on my blog for Halloween.
