Wall Art Project

I've finished a wall art project to hang over my bed and I love how it turned out.

I needed something over my bed so I went to Hobby Lobby and found that their framed wall art wa 50% off. The frames were 12 x 12 and the edges were already painted black which I knew would be just what I needed to match my bed. All I had to do was cover the printed surface with my choice of scrapbook paper. I chose papers from Simple Stories - Generations, which I purchased from The Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie, Texas. These papers match my comforter perfectly.

All I did was Mod Podge the paper over the printed square surface, let it dry, add my embellishments and hang on the wall. Easy!

If I can do this, you can, too. Just look around for the best deal on the frames. Some frames are way too expensive, especially when you can find them cheaper if you just look around.

Have fun!

Thankful for kindness

Good morning, all. I am so thankful this morning for the nice people I meet through digital scrapbooking. They are the ones who make my day. I have dealt with some pretty mean spirited people over the years, but thank God that they are few and far between. It is so great to interact with other scrapbook designers who are friendly and upbeat. It is such a drain to come across that one who hateful or smart mouthed.

A good rule of thumb is to be kind and when a conflict arises, to respond with gentleness, not retaliation.

Take time today to smell those fresh spring floral scents in the air this week.

Life is.....

I have been so busy but haven't been designing lately. Really struggling to get back into it. I got a motorcycle last summer and have been spending much of my time riding. My brother took me on a couple of cruises to the Caribbean last fall which gave me the opportunity to use my new diving certification. Had a wonderful time.

Some people are really good at blogging. I suck. I have a hard time sharing my feelings for the whole world to read and critique. Maybe I'll work harder at blogging, maybe I won't, but you can be sure I'll be riding. My next trip is coming up in April. Can't wait.
