Shabby Mosaic Crown

Coffee of the Day - Hazelnut

It is downright COLD and SNOWY here today!!!! No school due to the fact that we have had over 9" of snow already! and it isn't supposed to stop for several more hours. whoa nelly - that is A LOT OF SNOW!!!!!!!!


So guess what I've been doing (well other than drinking an entire pot of coffee to stay warm!)? yep, I've been stamping! SURPRISE!!! :D I ventured out to JoAnn's and Michaels for the first time in probably 6 months and had a ball! I bought a few things ( yes, I really was very good and only used my gift card that I received for Christmas from my way cool MIL), but man was it tough 'cause there's lots of cool stuff out there!


Anyhow, last week Julia Stainton showed this amazing technique over on her blog, Belle Papier. She did the mosaic technique but tore the paper rather than cutting it or using labels. I posted that I would try it, but didn't get around to it until today. I added some stickles, vintage buttons (the pearl bauble at the top just never would lie flat for the scan, so sorry!), some great Prima lace, & way cool Anna Griffin paper from Michaels. I hope that you enjoy!

p.s. just an FYI - I wrinkled up the paper for the mosaic and the heart & then inked with caramel to age/distess. I love love love love love this technique! :)
