2014: Fall Farm Visit
The Fall is a perfect time to head out to an apple orchard and get some fresh cider! We were up in Michigan for my Grandmother’s birthday and during nap time we decided that we would go to a local apple orchard! There was a wonderful festival feel complete with a pumpkin patch!
I used the wooden slat background paper to mimic the pallets used for squeezing the apples, and an orange accent for the borders for the photographs to represent the pumpkins in the picture. I had a piece of background paper with a large pumpkin on it, but it wasn’t the right color for this project, so I cut out the pumpkin and then used Modge Podge to affix it to a piece of sturdy cardboard. This gave the pumpkin a really cool texture which feels like a real pumpkin skin. I then used thick sticky tabs to affix it to the page so that the pumpkin was raised off of the page.
