It's only been two and a half weeks right? Have no fear, I'm still around. I've been working on a few behind the scenes design team projects, and also just hanging out. I am finding that I like to craft in spurts. Sometimes I can't stop for weeks, and then I find I need a break for a few others. I used to stress over it and posting something here every day but no more. First and foremost this is a hobby for me, therapy really. So I need to let it just flow . . .With that said, I have something new and kind of fun to share with you today. I have been quite take with picture displays lately. I have all sorts of ideas (thanks to Pinterest) on ways to display photos around my home. This project actually grew out of that. I plan on making a wall collage of some of pictures of my kids, and I decided to try my hand at decoupage for the first time. It's not perfect, but I really like it. I used a bunch of my stash (all the flowers) and even strung those beads myself (thank you DCWV for the Blue Moon beads by the way). Enough jabbering - here is one of my favorite pictures of my boys.
I used the emboss resist technique to color the back of the paper. The stamps are from Papertrey Ink. I first saw the technique here, at the brilliant Laura Bassen's blog - Emboss Resist.
