Today is the first day of summer vacation at our house and what a fantastic start, I was able to sleep in 45 minutes! Plus when I got up the kids were playing nicely and quietly and were even dressed in acceptable clothing (now why couldn't they do that on a school day?). We have accomplished so much already today and had time to play and get a few chores done and it is only 10 am. Now if the whole summer could only go so smoothly, ahh a girl can dream right? One of the latest projects I have worked on is altering some of the wood items I have collected. The fist one is one of the Ikea Wooden frames. I painted the edges with Kiwi Kiss ink (made by using my reinker and some white paint). I used the Bella Rose DSP to cover the front of the mirror. I used the chit chat rub-ons on the glass to say “Think Happy Thoughts” something that is fitting when you look in a mirror. It was hard to take a picture and show the words becuase either there was a huge light reflection or my camera was in the shot where the words were so I dont have a better picture of it.Then I embellished it with some of the felt flowers one from each kit, made some leaves using the little leaves sizlits die. There is also a rhinestone brad in the center.
The next project that I worked on was a wood sign that said “Family”. I bought several of these either from the 99 cent store or Dollar Tree, I am not sure which though. I thought that these would look so cute on a mantle or a shelf with a bunch of family photos around it. I covered the letters with the Good Morning Sunshine DSP. Both projects were finished up with 4 coats of matte finish modge podge on top of the paper.Pin It Now!
