I have had a lot of fun decorating my new house. My kitchen/dinning room is done in Grey, Yellow, and White. I love the color combination, and already had a lot of items to hang on the walls. In my new house, I found that I have more wall space than I had in my old house, so I decided to make some new things to add more color. I found some big canvas' on sale at Hobby Lobby, then cut out the words "You Are My Sunshine" using my cricut and some vinyl. Next, I taped off the sun and rays using some washi tape and painted them yellow. Then I used the negative space as stencils to paint the words grey. Once it all dried, I removed all the tape/washi tape...then it was put up on my wall. I really love how it turned out and am looking forward to making more.
So, my son and I have made our move to Cedar Park, and have been in our new home for a couple of weeks now. I was really nervous about moving so far away from my family, but I have grown to be very comfortable in our house in a very short time. My son has already found a new "best friend," they have been become fast friends. I have been working on getting all of our things unpacked and making our house feel like a home. The last room that I was able to unpack was my craft room, but once I got it all set up, I started to craft. It felt like it had been years since I was able to create something new.
I started with a scrapbook page of some pictures I took of my cousin Mollie. She is such a pretty and smart girl...very natural, so I wanted the page to have a natural look as well. This was the first time that I used texture paste, and I have to say...I am in love. I was able to use my distress inks to give the paste a light pink color, which fit in with the flowers on the pattern paper and the flowers on her dress. I also had some cream color ribbon that I knew I wanted to use, along with some wood shapes. I really love how the page turned out.
Check out the pictures from this quick and fun photo shoot below. Mollie is so easy to photograph.
My name is JoNeita Kelly and I have been crafting for at least the last 20 years. I live in Forney, Texas with my son, Dallas. I am a High School teacher and Cheerleading Coach. I love to craft and to continue to improve my photography and editing skills whenever I have free time. What I love most is telling our story using pictures, it is the most important gift I can leave my family.
