This weekend we celebrated my daughter's 14th birthday. I cannot believe how fast the time is passing and that she will be starting high school in the Fall! Usually I make her a card, but I found one at the store that said all the things I wanted so I bought her one instead (GASP!) and opted to make her something for her room.
She LOVES to read - so much so that I should own stock in Amazon. Within the first 3 weeks of Summer break, she had already finished 8 novels. Sometimes, she will spend a whole day in her room reading. Part of this is due to the fact that at the moment her phone is broken but even when it's not, she still prefers a book to TV.
When Krista released this image (Hammock Time), I knew it was perfect for my daughter. I added some titles to the books in Photoshop and added the quote which is a variation of a Neil Gaiman quote - "A book is a dream that you hold in your hands." I colored with copics and used a stencil and ink for the clouds and then I handprinted my daughter's name.
I bought the frame at a local craft store and used my Spellbinders to create the mat. My daughter loved it.
I apologize for the quality of the pics because they were taken with my iPhone but I cleaned them up as best as I could with Photoshop.
Thanks for stopping by.
