Not too long ago, fellow CZT Kelley Kelly shared a picture of a piece of scrapbook paper on which she had added her tangling. You should check out more of her wonderful work on her blog, but here's what she created on that scrapbook paper.
I thought it was beautiful and a great idea, so I immediately went through my stash of paper to see what I had. Unfortunately I didn't find anything appropriate. So off to the store I went to find some inspiring papers. I still couldn't find anything that I thought was as cool as Kelley's paper, but I selected several to bring home and play with.
One thing I picked out was a paper to make something for my son (all grown-up and a sports editor at a newspaper). Here's a picture of the paper.
Perfect for a sports fanatic, don't you think? I tangled, put it in a mat, and framed it. This picture doesn't show it framed because it would be hard to a take a picture without reflections.
I made it for my son's birthday which was last week, but I couldn't post it until now, because rather than mailing it to him (far away from us in Mississippi), I saved it to bring with us since we're visiting him for Thanksgiving. Didn't want him to see this blog before I gave it to him and spoil the surprise.
I'll soon be working on some of the other papers I bought and will share them here (if I like the results!)
Thanks Kelley for the inspiration, and happy birthday Josh!
