About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Oh, Baby!!!

I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things with my creating.  
I'm starting to feel my mojo coming back....well,  at least I think it is.

BBTB2 blog has a challenge to create something baby themed. 

I always seem to make something for a baby girl. 
 Not that we have a lot of babies born lately in our family.
  But when we do its mostly girls. 

I decided to create something blue.  
I love how this one turned out, if I do say so myself. 

The chair is cut from Folk Art Festival.
The sentiment, onsie, clothes hanger and the hanging hearts are from New Arrival.  The tiny hearts on the onsie are the negatives from a border punch.

I cut the layers to resemble a nursery.  The blue and brown were embossed to give it more dimension.
Distressed around the edges of some of the images. Used some dimensionals to give it more ooomph.  Added some twine to the hanging hearts.  After looking at it...I think I should have added some floor moulding.  Oh well, everything is adhered and if I make another one I'll make that small change. 

Until later,  mommies........Gotta split.......TFL!!!!
