Ta Da! My New Blog
I'm so pleased to be starting a blog. I love blogs. I read blogs. And, at last, I have begun to write one of my very own! I've posted some links on here to some really great places that I love to visit when I am online. I go on cafemom a lot. I've got some really great friends on there. I'm an admin for the group The Shabby Chic Scrapper. It is a group for advanced scrappers and the girls in that group do some really inspiring work. There is also the link to pencillines.com. They post an amazing sketch each week. Whenever I am stuck for inspiration I usually head over that way to check them out. Over the next few weeks I will be posting some of my latest creations. This is a photo mat that I did last night. It was a lot of fun to do. I haven't had time to do a full layout with it yet, but I will post it when I do. I made an oval out of dark blue cardstock and accented it with a white paint marker. I cut some lengths of beige yarn and inked them with some red ink to look like sauce. I made the meatballs out of brown felt. I also highlighted them with a little bit of light brown ink. To adhesify the whole mess I coated the 'plate' with diamond glaze and just stuck the spaghetti where I wanted it. So the diamond glaze not only adhered everything, but gave the plate a nice sheen as well, making it more realistic. I double matted the photo and stitched around the photo mat to give it some texture. Well, this concludes the first entry to my blog. Thank you so much for reading. Please leave a comment. I would appreciate it so much.
