We rent the house we live in and I find the lamp in the dinning room rather ugly (of course my husband thinks it is just fine). One day I was just browsing blog land and I saw a picture of the same lamp and the fix the person came up with and I knew I had to try it one day. So I did. I used some poster board I had and some scrap fabric and tape and really quickly put it up to see what it would look like. I think it is better, but I'm going to have to redo it. You can tell where the extra fabric folds over and the seam where the poster board overlaps. I didn't realize how much light was still going to show through. What do you think?
I've got one more rainbow inspired layout to share. This time I played along with Scrap Our Stash . I used the following five items up from the list. 1. Stripe Paper (I may have a rainbow stripe addiction when it comes to paper) 2. Paper Clip (the orange arrow at the top) 3. Wood Veneer (the cute arrow) 4. Flair (I've got two. The circle heart from Amy Tangerine and the square sunshine from a Freckled Fawn Kit) 5. Enamel Dots (I've got a few green in one corner and a few orange in another) I used a bunch of pop dots on this layout to keep some of the corners up and to give the clouds some layering. I kind of forgotten just how handy those little things can be in giving depth to a page. I also decided to keep my journaling hidden since this page has so much going on pattern wise with no good breaks.
