It's week 2 for YOU:create with Gitz! I'm so excited....this actually encourages me (gives me an excuse) to break away from the monotony of the day (and the laundry) and create something. I love all types of art: painting, crafting, sewing, photography, card making, etc. I've even taken a beginner ceramics class and would also love to learn wood working! :)
But for this week, I chose to make a picture frame. My husband has a construction company and sometimes I get to rummage through his leftover pieces of wood.....one man's junk is another man's treasure, right? Well...sometimes. :)
My friend, Audrey, actually told me about this project. Thanks, girl!
To start, I found a scrap piece of wood, wide enough to stand up on its own. I then sanded all sides and corners to make it as smooth as possible. I used modge podge to adhere my chosen scrapbook paper, letters, etc. I used a cross stamp to add a little something extra and embellished with a little bling bling! :)
I used hot glue to attach my decorative ribbon on the edges as well as the bow, and also my hand painted polka dotted clothes pin to hold my picture.
Oh yeah, one other thing I "created" this week.......
My son had "nerd day" in his youth group at church Wednesday night so we headed down to a nearby Goodwill store to find the perfect clothes! How'd we do? :)
And don't 'cha just L*O*V*E the hair?! It takes talent, my friends.
