Wall Art…

Yipee…I made something…oh my gosh…amazing!!! I finally got my butt out of this “funk” & made something today! I thought my mojo was gone forevah!!!

I’ve had these shadow boxes for over a year now I’m sure, I picked them up for about $10 each at Hallmark Cards, they actually were Holly Hobby shadow boxes, they had all these “cute” little things pinned to them, etc, it’s almost like a canvas inside & you can actually stick pins in them, etc…so I thought hey, I can do something with these, they are really nice, not cheap shadow boxes, nice wood, etc.

Well when we moved I came across them after I moved the stuff I couldn’t fit into my craft room into the basement than I went into the basement to go thru everything & pick out what I wanted to sell & what I wanted to keep, I came across them & brought them upstairs & said I can make something out of them to hang on our walls, I decided that when we moved into this place that I would frame my photography, etc instead of buying, well not buying expensive artwork, so it’s working out well.

I was flipping thru the new catalogue & on Page 12 I really liked what they had done with a frame…so I was inspired. I didn’t want to leave the house today so I sat down & got busy. Everything came together nice & quick. I dyed the Pretties flower with the new Classic Riding Hood Red ink pad, used the new scallop border punch to mat the pictures, SU rub-ons (my Son’s says “Good Times” & my daughter’s says “Follow Your Heart”) & everything else is pretty simple…I {heart} them…ALOT!
