Jill's Project

Ok, so once I saw what Jill had done over on her blog, I couldn't resist trying to do one myself. Course the laundry list of problems with that didn't seem to dim my enthusiasm. Let's start with I'm in Michigan and all my stuff is in New York. Oh, no problem..I'll go spend money I shouldn't and buy some supplies here. Hmm..I've never used mod podge, but that's ok..it can't be too tough, right? *grins* Anyway, nothing stopped me. Not even not having any pictures to choose from. I got lucky. The boys school pics had just come back. So, without further ado..my attempt:

Background
Hmm...it bubbled. It looks ok in the end, but I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for this kind of thing.

Completed Wall Hanging
The completed project! I think it looks pretty darn good and I can't wait to hang it in my bedroom/craft area when I get back to NY. I wish I could have disguised the vellum a bit more, but it looks pretty good for not having the tools. Oh..and that darn x that had to become a y because I ruined the first y and there were no more in the box...hehe...
