Sheet Music Table

I have had this little vintage fold-up table sitting in the closet for a while now.  My grandma had given it to me, cracked green paint and all.  I would stare at it now and then, uninspired, but I knew an idea would eventually come to me.

Finally one day last week the idea did come to me!  Sheet music!  I happened to have some old sheet music, some Mod Podge, and even some ribbon and scrap book supplies.  I, of course, forgot the before picture.  And this was one of those that would have been good to have!  But, after working on this project all weekend, I am finally finished and I really like the results.

 

 

 

 

I later read somewhere that in order to keep the ripples and bubbles from occurring you can dampen your paper before adding Mod Podge.  I will definitely try that next!  But for a first try, I think it turned out super cute!  What do you all think?

A Few New Scrapbook Pages

December 17, 2009 at 11:44 am (Scrap-booking) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I have been getting some things done over my past blogging absence!  I accomplished many many scrapbook pages.  Here is a peak at just a few.  I hope these inspire you scrapbookers out there!  Feel free to ask any questions!

I personally like my pages to be handwritten.  I like the imperfections and mistakes.  It makes them feel more personal to me.  My pages are also always original.  Personalizing is my best advice for scrapbookers, it will always mean more in the end!

Hope that gives you all some ideas!  And feel free to give your ideas too!

A Few Layouts

Last night was a quiet, restful night at our busy house. Having the puppy has meant little sleep and rowdy evenings at home. So, no projects for us last night. But, I did do a few scrapbook layouts. I thought I would share these with you. Hope they are inspiring. Let me know what you think and if you have any ideas!

I did the black swirl as well as the spider web lettering for Halloween by hand.
