Other things may change us, but we start and end with family -Anthony BrandtWOW, a week, really....I only have a WEEK to get all of this Christmas stuff done!?!?!?!
I took a little time out for myself and got some crafting done, Say It With Letters has some GORGEOUS words available to alter. I got the word FAMILY the other day and pulled out some gorgeous Daisy D paper to pretty it up. I use Decoupage Gel...have you used this stuff??? It is Amazing, I love it SO much better than Mod Podge, it never gets tacky after it dries and it sticks SO well! After I attached the paper and it dried (another thing I LOVE about this gel is that is dries SO fast!) I sponged the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink to tone down the white background. I then added Stickles to the flowers and then tied on some random brown ribbons and Dark Chocolate Vintage Buttons on every other letter and then Prima flowers adorned with more buttons on the other letters.
Sorry the pictures aren't perfect, I took the pics at night and the lighting was not great...they are 100% better IRL!
