I need more time...




Don't we always feel that way?
I had this vision for this lo, needless to say it didn't quite come out the way I wanted but what can you do...I don't seem to have the time to redo it. DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO GLUE SEQUINS TO PAPER IN MASS QUANTITIES? That's all I'm saying. I refuse to grovel at the throne of the sequin. Teehee.
My oldest son will be seven in a couple of weeks and he is going through a "helpful" period right now. I just want to document the nice times as well as the crazy ones.
I used my sewing machine to stitch the "stem" swirl (hard to do on a 12x12 sheet of paper) and then drew an outline with my glitter pen (hard to see the sparkle). I added some sequins and drew some leaves as a final touch. White letters from Paper Studio. The shiny silver strip of scalloped paper is cut from some packaging from Christmas (pretty cool). Not acid free...so not touching my pics.
