Hello again and Lily’s First Birthday

I’m back!

I officially graduated with a bachelor’s in Business Administration, concentration in marketing, and a minor in English Literature. Now, I once again have the time to create and share those creations with all of you!

My best friend’s baby turned one back in April!

Here’s what I whipped up as part of my present to Lily and a quick shot with the birthday girl herself:

Experiment: Altered Canvas into Wall Organizer

This was an experimental project. It’s an altered canvas turned into a note holder wall organizer thing.

I used my little alphabet stamps in a random order along with distress ink to make the background, vintage sheet music on the other side that is revealed once I cut and rolled open the canvas, handmade scrappy mini bunting strung across the back and a clothesline wire strung further forward. The teacups were hand cut from the wood boxes shown before and then I used watercolor pencils and inks to decorate them.

For now, my clothesline features a Cavallini & co. notecard and one of the vintage, blank, postcards recently given to me by my grandparents.

This is also my first time participating in a Simon Says Stamp challenge. I thought this week’s Monday challenge, Start from Scratch, was right up my alley.
