Scissor & Paper


I'm out of my league with this little number, but sometimes you've just got to try something different... As part of my crafty disaster makeover, I wanted some new wall art (I'm getting closer and closer to finishing the space!). Working on a tiny little budget, I needed to get creative. So I gathered up a canvas I already had along with cardstock & scrapbook paper, played with tissue paper for texture, found some graphics from The Graphics Fairy, and scanned some of the cutest pages from my new favorite old book...to get this!

It hangs on the wall in my crafty/sewing space and I'm pretty happy with it. Beyond scrapbooks and cards, I don't work with paper much but I'm pretty happy with it overall.

And how much do you love those vintage sewing scissors??

  2. Cool! Perfect for a crafty space. Can't wait to see your crafty disaster makeover "after". I have a crafty disaster on my dining room table right now. Maybe it will go away in a few weeks...maybe.
