Lately I've been crafting up a storm. I've been crampy so I've been lounging around this weekend. Saturday night was so great because the girls played barbies, my boyfriend played video games, and I made stuff. I've sort of been feeling bad lately that I hadn't really finished the 30 day journal challenge, and I wasn't really happy with my journal pages, so I decided to start over. My new 30 day journal is SO cute! It will get it's own post when I'm finished....I can't wait to show you!! While I was waiting for the gesso to dry on one of my journal pages, I spotted an unfinished wood photo frame across the room. I had painted a blue dahlia in my journal and had some left over paint on my cute little daisy palette, so I went straight to work painting the picture frame. I'm so happy with how it turned out! It looks really really cute with a real photo in it, and up on the wall. It was just a cheapie Michales wooden frame I got in the kids craft section, and I just used my cheap Wal-Mart craft paints on it. This is a fun craft that anyone can do. Dahlias are easy....just paint a bunch of black ovals and fill them in with whatever color you like (tone on tone colors would look great too). If you decide to do this project, please leave a link to your work in the comments....I'd love to see your dahlias!
