I finally found some free time within the last few weeks to work on some craft and art projects I’ve had my eye on and I wanted to share them with you all.
I made Alisa Burke’s butcher paper wreath.
Her instructions were very clear and since my mom had just given me a roll of butcher paper my only cost for this project was the $1.50 I spent on the styrofoam wreath.
I also finally hopped on the ‘gallery wall’ bandwagon. I bought most of these frames at IKEA in March, but just now got around to hanging them.
Eventually I plan to move that red sofa table and fill the entire wall with the frames. Nothing is permanent, but here’s what’s in them currently.
The biggest and center frame is a print of our bridal party from the wedding.
Obviously, it didn’t take long to add Lois to the wall. I edited a photo of her in photoshop and printed it on bright blue scrapbook paper.
The ‘L’ is a quick watercolor painting I did and the flower on the right is cut from a magazine.
Recognize this filmstrip?
And finally, a classy family photo from the photobooth at our wedding.
It’s definitely a work in progress, but for now I’m pretty happy with it.
Other recent projects have included:
Elise Blaha’s take on blueberry lemon bread
I’ve also made some art for our guest room which recently got a facelift.
But you’ll have to wait to see the rest!
