Boutique les_trouvailles : 116 créations fait main à partir de 2,50 EUR sur DaWanda. Bookhou at home. Hi there, did you have a nice weekend? It was unusually warm here - the sun was beaming all weekend and it was almost warm enough to leave your coat behind. I am in the thick of show prep with the set-up being tomorrow and things are falling into place nicely.

I find that when times are hectic it's nice to have a great support team and I don't think I could pull these kind things off without all the help I get from j - he's the best at personalizing my booth. I wanted a kind of peg board to display the bags, in past years I would screw wood dowels into the wall and it would leave me with little room for display variations as well it made unsightly holes in the wall, this peg wall provides so much more options. And I couldn't get by without sewing help from my mom, she would of come sooner but she was enjoying a much deserved trip in thailand. she's a much faster sewer than I am, which says a lot, because I'm pretty fast. have a great monday friends! November 2012. Here's a video of the workshop I taught last year: Getting all the gifts wrapped up for my Canadian friends.

I'm getting so excited about my upcoming trip in less than two weeks! There are still some spots available for the workshop I will be teaching at Boohou in case you want to join us. It will be so much fun to spend the afternoon stamping away and drinking Mexican hot chocolate. I'll bring some of my own carved stamps so we can play around and make some wrapping paper & tags to be used during the holidays. All the materials needed are included, all you have to bring is your lovely self :-) Hope you can join us if you're in Toronto. Geninne's Art Blog. Résultat de la recherche.

DIY Make Your Own Picture Frame

Find my other posts in this series here: Potato Print Art Work, Modern Art DIY, Painted Words as Art. I was at a friend’s home a few months ago and I asked her where she got her pretty thin wood frames. She laughed and told me to pick it up off the wall and look at the back. I was shocked to see that the “frame” was actually kraft paper tape. Materials Needed: Glass or plexiglass, mat board cut to the size of the plexiglass (from an art store), mat board cutter, a piece of cardboard cut to the size of the plexiglass, ruler, paper tape (from an art store), exacto knife, hardware to hang your artwork, superglue First, I started with some leftover plexiglass we had from this project.

Next, cut your own matboard. Now you are ready to put it all together. Once it is done let it dry for at least an hour before handling and wait several hours before hanging. Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
