My oldest daughter, Laura, is coming and these kinds of deadlines are really great for getting some things finally done. Last year I had bought 3 frames for the summer decor in the front entrance hall. I wanted faeries! I found some decoupage images at Michaels and I bought a sheet of shiny aqua background.
I am so pleased and they took no time at all.
I cut the image out and just glued it lightly in a few spots on the background. It doesn't bother me that the mat should be smaller although I can certainly change that later.
Sorry for the glare. I didn't actually think about documenting this at first. But they are so cute. One is a boy faerie. I have one faerie left over as the sheets came with 2 per sheet. They are embossed and quite detailed.
I'm not sure how my time will be next week so I wanted to get a quick post in. I have also been working on my journal and backgrounds. That is so much fun. The cleaning is also going well because it is much easier to sort stuff when I know the colour of the room and the style/theme where it should go. So I'm not keeping stuff just because I like it and what if... It is going if it won't work! I can't quite explain how freeing that is. I figured out that my creativity will find lots of expression in my journals so I can narrow down my options for home decor and simplify the tweaking so it is a day and not a whole week when I feel the need for a change. I now need that extra time to make art! I'll post on Friday some of my summer decor.
The faeries have arrived and the daughter will be here in 24 hours!
Have a super Saturday and Sunday!
