art, finally

After nearly eight months of 40% creative block and 60% distraction, I finally finished this piece for Rhys’ room. I am really, really, pleased with it. For all you scrappers out there (I won’t lie, I’ve tried – but I’m just not), I used scrapbooking supplies (namely, the “Bohemia” line from My Mind’s Eye. They’re one of my favorites.): rub-ons (on top of the glass – the lady at Archiver’s said they wouldn’t stick. Not so!), double-sided paper, and some transparency-like die-cuts. The only thing that I didn’t find at a scrapbook store were the transparencies that I printed the quote onto. It’s from “Peter Pan”. We saw the quote framed at a local store and loved it, so I decided to use it in the piece. Hopefully it will spark Rhys’ imagination. It’s fanciful, I think. The window frame itself is from Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore. (Go there, if you haven’t already. There’s a location in Omaha and in Des Moines.)

Once we hung it up, Rhys looked at it and said, “OH! Pwetty!” Another satisfied customer.
