I have seen the technique of printing on wax paper via Pinterest so many times. I finally decided to use it and it worked!
My dilemma was that I couldn’t print on a large piece of paper. I wasn’t going to let that stop me! When I want to do a project, I NEED to do it NOW!
I created and reversed my image in Photoshop. After taping the wax paper to a regular piece of computer paper with double sided tape, I gave it a go.
I carefully placed the wax paper, ink side down, onto my project and rubbed the image onto the paper. I love how it turned out. The text has just the right amount if transparency for just the “vintagey” less than perfect look that I love!
I will always cherish this shot by my talented friend, Renee. Check out her work at http://sunlitsmilesphotography.blogspot.com/ !!
I love gifts! Especially giving them. Who doesn’t like a gingerbread button?
I finally finished our advent calendar, it’s only Dec 4th!
I have Christmas decor ADD- I rarely decorate the same way from year to year. This one just might stick!
I am totally obsessed with the painted decoupaged clothespins I made for this project. I’ll be doing that again!
Quick but cute little valentines for my sweeties to hand out!
I know I’ve been AWOL for a loooong while. I’ve been living life and enjoying every minute! It’s starting to cool off a bit and I always fall head over heals in love with FALL all over again. Pumpkin lattes, baked goods and a fresh new color pallette all around me!! Can’t complain.
I had a little fun with my little girls this afternoon making these easter bonsai, as we like to call them. It’s amazing what you can do with a tin can, plaster, a branch and some hot glue.
One of my favorite parts is the little nests that they added made from wool roving and tiny beads.
My little apples didn’t fall far from this tree.
