As a girl, my mom would always tell me that I was off
in la-la land…lol! She never quite related to a child’s imaginative and wandering mind, having been forced to grow up fast. To this day, she can not relate to my younger brother 8 years younger than me.
I would love to have this hang on the door of my future craft room!
OKAY, back to my faux framed goodness…
The second I ordered these odd-bird planet stamps I knew what I wanted to do with them!
I wanted to create a scene and faux frame it (my fave trick) and wanted it to have a homey shabby chic yet fun feel to it!
My inspiration for the frame is an actual white frame hanging in the family room.
A TON of work went into this, but I had so much fun doing it!
