Here is my crazy hair layout that I made for a NSD throwback sketch challenge. I have been super into hand stitching on my layouts lately. I love the texture it makes, but it definitely takes a long time to do. I have a ton of cross stitching floss that came from my aunt when she passed away. My aunt was into cross stitch and so was my oma. And my mom still does cross stitch all the time, but my mom likes to do ones that have beads and buttons. I don't have the patience for those big projects, but I don't mind it in little bits on my scrapbook pages. I also used water color and gel medium on my page.
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!
