Creating . . .
Anyone who comes into my house can immediately tell you that I LOVE photos and I have them displayed all over my walls, on tabletops, just anywhere I can put them. I have a ton of those collage frames where you just put photos in the empty spaces and I've always loved them because they're a great way to use up all my extra photos that I don't put in scrapbooks.
I decided to make my own version of the collage frame and hang it up in my dining room. This is what I created . .
I really like how it turned out. It's kind of a 3-dimensional collage; really fun! (I used lots of different patterned paper, some cool chipboard letters, lots of flowers, lots of buttons, and some doodling for journaling.) The photo here really doesn't capture it the best, but I think you can click on it and make it bigger to see it better.
I really enjoyed doing that one, so I sat down this afternoon and made a little surprise for my friend Chris who got married a couple of weeks ago. For her to hang up in her brand new house, which desperately needs things hanging on the walls . . .
Photos of Chris with her various girlfriends (all the gals who served cake and punch at her reception). Again, excuse the image here. I haven't quite figured out how to take photos of frames. There's always a glare, so I tried to position it here over my living room thinking the sunlight would help out. Sorry it's not better.
Off to do more creating . . .this time finishing up an article for The News.
