Boy howdy! I bet you were thinking I had fallen off the face of the earth, huh? Actually, my meds were changed and I have gone back to having good days and bad days. :-\ Today is a good day! :)
I see pictures of scraprooms that are breath-taking over on Pinterest. They are all matchy matchy. I dress like that. Matchy matchy. I like that concept. When it came to my scraproom ... I was just happy to have all the stuff in ONE room! :) But I decided ... I want a pretty, matchy matchy scraproom. Normally ... people who know me would think I would go with bold and red. To be honest ... I kinda had that same thought too. But as I was looking around my scraproom ... I noticed I had a lot of blues and browns ... coincidence? Probably ... I always tend to reach for red when shopping. I cannot help myself! :-) It just happens!
I shared with you all the cans I went kinda crazy with right? Well, not all of them but most of them. I forgot to share this one with you. I loved the PP I used. It is from GCD Studios Ella Blue collection which truth be told I have not heard of before. I bought this PP from one of those gals on FB who was purging her stash. I am still having trouble wrapping my mind around that idea! But lucky for me, I bought this pretty paper ... and ... it inspired me.
So one of the things I noticed was blue and brown was this:
Ain't the PP pretty? I love it! :) So I decided ... my scraproom ... will be matchy matchy ... in browns and blues. :) I still have about 15 pages of this same collection ... then ... because I just do not have enough paper ... I bought a K&Company Ancestry paper pad with the same brown and blue colors. So I am on a roll. I did worry about not having enough PP. I found a nifty idea over on Pinterest! There was a pin about using vinyl paper and mod podging PP over it! How awesome of an idea is that?!? I do plan to paint all the furniture in the same shade of brown. I think I want to paint the walls a light blue but right now they are a creamy beige and I think that color will work as well. I have some blue fabric for curtains. So I think over the next few months I might be able to pull it all together. :) I am just ambitious that way! ;)
Today I decided to alter the first of many, many things I want to use the GCD Studio paper on. The K&Company paper is to use AFTER I finish the GCD Studio paper ... Every. Single. Scrap! :)
As always ... I forgot to take a before photo but remembered just as I was gonna cover the last side. Here is an idea of what the letter holder looked like:
And after I worked my magic ... this is how it now looks:
Are you as excited as I am about the possibilities?!? ;) lol
