Hello friends!! I know, I know.....it has been a while since I have posted and I feel really bad for neglecting my blog for so long, but I think that I just needed to take a much needed break from the digital world and even a bit of a break from scrapping.
I really want to get back into the swing of things and so, lets get started today with this lovely wall hanging that I created for The Twinery blog last week....
I started on this project by picking up this frame at a local 2nd hand store. I altered it by painting, distressing, stamping, adding some Tattered Angels ink mists, and then adding a clear coat to it. I added some lined paper to the inside of the frame, and then adhered the Make Life Beautiful, that I cut out with vinyl on my Silhouette, to the outside of the glass along with the crocheted flowers that I created with the lovely solid bakers twine from The Twinery.
These flowers and leaves are crocheted up with these fabulous bakers twine colors....Solid Caribbean, Solid Strawberry, Solid Honeydew, and Solid Marigold. I just sat down on the couch one evening with my bakers twine and a crochet hook and whipped up these fun little flowers. I don’t have a pattern, I just started with a magic ring and the Solid
Marigold bakers twine and I crocheted 10 single crochets in the smaller
flowers and 12 single crochets on the larger one. From there, I just
played around and came up with these flowers. I added some little white
pearl halves, too.
What do you think?? I really love the way it turned out and I am thinking that I will display it in my craft room....because isn't that what we really are doing is making life beautiful with each project that we create??
I am really hoping to get back into crafting and blogging over the next few weeks. We are just wrapping up our homeschool year and we found out just a little bit ago that our landlords are going to be selling the house we moved into last year, so we will be moving again. :( Hopefully we can find a more permanent home and I can finally set up my craft room and have it stay put up. ::sigh:: I am just glad that summer is here and can't wait to go on a few new adventures with my family.
