Since my last post I have been in a little bit of a crafting funk. The cute mitten down there? Frogged. It was way too small. The sock further down? Also ripped. Got to the gusset and my circular needle snapped. Can you just see stitches unravelring everywhere {sob}. Time to put the knitting down and do something else.

But what?

I started browsing my favorite blogs and came across this cool tutorial. Hmmmm. Scrapbook paper? Check. Stamps? A drawer full. Embellishments? A box full.Canvas and Paint? A quick trip to Pat Catan's and just a few dollars.

This was so much fun to make. And the best part was Mod Podge. I really haven't used paint or Mod Podge and what a blast to take a brush and paint all over a canvas! I am delighted that I have found a way to use my craft supplies that have been collecting dust. And the bright colors are so cheerful to work with. My inner artist has been released! LOL.


  1. Oh Debbie I love your design! It is so colorful and fun to look at!! Great job, you have made it so I would like to try that sometime. At the moment I am into knitting but I can see a time that I would love to scrapbook. Sorry to hear 'bout the knitting, you can always come back to it another time.
    Thanks for visiting my nest! xoRobin❤

  3. That turned out adorable. Isn't modge podge fun? It's amazing what that white, stinky goo can do. I love that you just turned your creativity somewhere else. Sometimes that's all it takes to get the mojo going once more.

  4. I love how your project turned out~ so cute! Such fun cheery colors and images! I've been in the mood to do a project similar to that. I just need to get the courage to dig in!

  5. I have never heard of modge podge but thank you for writing and sharing. What you created is absolutely fantastic and just the kind of thing I'm looking to do in my little girls bedroom. I'm off to investigate modge podge!

  6. Hi Debbie. What a nice surprise to find your comment on my blog. It's a pleasure to meet you and I will visit you often. Sewing and knitting are projects on my long list of things to do now that I am retired. You will inspire me!

  7. I love that. Very cute. I have a lot of papercrafting supplies, as well as yarn. I think the technical term for us is multiple (craft) personalities! So much to do, so little time. Kathy

  8. Gorgeous, Debbie! It's so nice to try something different isn't it? And then when you go back to knitting you'll enjoy it again after a break. Have a happy Sunday. Helen x
