I decided to make him something. Making a man something isn't as easy as I thought, then I remembered I had seen some cute father's day gifts around blogland, that had pictures of their kiddos holding letters to spell out dad. I recently scored a great deal on a DSLR camera, (thanks Jessica!) and I have been dying to test out my photography skills! So, I cut out some letters with my trusty ol' Cricut, then took the kids out and gave it a try. Within 15 mintues I had what I needed. I came home and got to work editing them and aging the photos. (I don't have photoshop, so I went here, and it did the trick.)
I decided to hang them with ribbon. I put lines of E600 where I was going to put the ribbons and put them on there. I glued several inches to the canvases, thinking it would add more support and hold longer. I allowed it to dry for a couple of hours.
After the glue dried, I tied the ribbons, and hung them on our wall. I am really happy with how they turned out...not bad for an under $5 project! :)
(That tute on Kanzashi flowers is still in the works! I have been too busy to finish all of the flowers, much less sit and write a long tute... Hopefully I will get it posted soon!)
Today I am thankful for my wonderful husband. I don't think he will ever know how much he means to me!
