I DID IT!!
I made my very first creative craft from start to finish! I am not only excited, I am very proud of myself. I really never thought I had a creative bone in my body, but it turns out that I do, it just needs to be inspired.
I have become totally inspired by the seriously amazing craft blogs out there. Here are a few of my favs:
Tidbits from the Treymayne's - She is a freakin riot to read, and does big time home makeover's (like with a power saw and wood (WAY OUT OF MY LEAGUE))
I am momma-She has a little bit of everything on her blog.
Ok enough of everyone else, back to me! I told my mom last week that I wanted crafty stuff because I have become inspired. SO my wonderful mom went through all her old stuff (old being 1980 something) and gave a lot of it to me. I wasn't impressed, but I thought at least I have somewhere to start. She gave me some fabric paint, iron on transfers and stencils.
Today inspiration hit me! I used an old pillow cover and an ice cream iron on transfer and went to work! This is the start:
Only one of the ice creams transferred onto the pillow case and it only worked really good the first time (I told you it was old). I used the fabric paint and some stencils and it ended up like this:
I did learn that I am not patient enough, and I need to let the paint dry before adding details and such, but I think it looks decent for my first try at doing anything crafty. SO drum roll please .....................................................................................
The finished product! What do you think??
