Fall harvest printable

I like graphic design and typography (though I don't claim to be great at either), so printables are one of my favorite "computer crafts." Going along with the harvest challenge theme, I found a quote about harvest and used a fall-color chevron pattern (from here) as a background. The brown is my favorite shade of brown (which we use here on this blog), the dark red and orange are defaults in my graphics program, and the yellow actually came from a photograph of yellow poplar leaves. Add in lots of fonts from my graphics program, and some clip art, and voila!

We've got the chevron pattern in the letters:
And in the background:

You might want to open the image in a new tab or window. Make sure that the image is full-size: it should be bigger than your screen. If it isn't full size, click on it to blow it up. then, from the menu of your browser, select print preview. The image is designed to print at about 8" square, so just click print (I hope!).

If you're just joining us on WGC, here are some of our other fall-themed crafts:
Fall table runner made from 4 fat quarters
$1 Fall leaves canvas art

Which printable do you like better? What's your favorite fall or harvest quote?

Love that fall leaves canvas art. It so like it would be so calming to make, while sipping some nice hot cider. Umm, I think I'll give it a try.
