My projects

I've been working on some projects this week.  Some successes -

Some failures -

I tried to glue pretty paper onto this canvas, but it ended up with too many bubbles.  So, I pulled it off.  Now, I have to think of something creative to do with this crazy mess.  This is what I was trying to do -

I don't even remember how I managed to not get any bubbles in this one.  That's the problem with jumping around from dresses to purses to paintings.  I don't remember all of the tips and tricks every time. 

I'm also working on a headboard and pillows for my daughter's bed -

The fabric in the middle has various French scenes.  I asked my older daughter if the fabric is too literal.  She couldn't even understand that concept when I tried to explain it to her.  Then, I realized that nothing can be "too literal" in a child's bedroom.

Hopefully, I'll have more successes this week.  I'll keep you updated...
