Over the past few years, I've become more courageous in mixing patterns and colors, and I think my crafty ventures are a big part of it. It's much easier to take a risk with sheets of paper that cost less than $1 than with articles of clothing or yards of designer fabric. Another plus is that some of the really smart paper manufacturers -- like Doodlebug Designs -- make supplies that color-coordinate. So you can mix fearlessly, just like Cecily.
Here are some very colorful projects I created with the Nifty Notions collection from Doodlebug Designs.
Appropriately enough, this photo was taken outside the Dallas Museum of Art. That mosaic just screams "take my photo!"
I didn't have letter stickers in all the colors I needed, so I whipped out my acrylic paint and altered a few white stickers to the colors I needed.
I made this monogram card using a letter sticker. I'm not quite sure who I'm going to give it to, but the great thing is that I can change the monogram by changing out the sticker and the person will think I made it just for them. Shhh...
And finally a mini album that holds some of my very favorite photos taken this summer. I've gotten into a habit of doing these "favorites" books, and they're always the first thing my friends and family members pick up when they come into my room.
Thanks for stopping by!
