Happy Monday! I feel like the weeks are just flying so fast I can't believe it! My littlest guy is almost three months old. Anyways, here is my latest layout for the Memory Nest. I really liked the vertical lines from the sketch. At first I stitched some lines down the paper, but they really did not show at all, so I started coloring the leaves. At first I was just doing a few, but it still didn't have much of an inpact. Before long, I colored a whole bunch of them.
Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own. So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath. First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!
Clever idea to colour the leaves to interpret the vertical lines from the sketch, looks so good!ReplyDelete
