I was just sitting in my craft room, looking at all of my crap and wondering what the heck I was going to create.
I needed to create!
I had to do something all me.
So, I came up with this.
I apologize for the poor pic quality. I was so excited to show you this, that I took the picture at night and in my hallway. Two very ungood things. Sorry!
Ok-I know it's hard to see, but this spells my last name through the words.
HOYT-I used the same stamps as the rest of the words, just a olive green color ink. Now, I am not tooting my own horn here, but I really like how this turned out. Even my husband noticed it and said something.
So, how did I do this?
I found a lined piece of scrapbook paper, pulled out some thrift store stamps (that I have never used before and have had for over a year) Nice!
I wrote out the words before hand. Trying to get the words with the right letters in the right order did take me a minute.
Then I stamped it out. I added the 5-there are 5 of us in our family, so I thought it would be a fun element.
Here it is in a half finished vinigette. Why half way done? Cause that's how I roll!
I also made the glasses shadow box. My husband did not like this one, but what does he know right?
Oh, I forgot to mention that this is on a canvas. I just hot glued the paper to the canvas. (shhh) I didn't want to modge podge, because I am impatient. You already knew that-right?
Stay tuned: Giveaway will be tomorrow.
