We are home at last. Although it is HOT, HOT, HOT here is Arizona I am happy to be here. Our travels were lots of fun but as they say (whoever "they" are), there is no place like home, which brings me to this post. I hope you enjoy the Magic of Oz. Over the next week or so I will be posting some of my projects with instructions that were featured on the Graphic 45 blog in July.
When I started this project, I had an entirely different end result in mind but as most paper crafters know- some things just take on a life of its own. When I first saw the previews for the “Magic of Oz” I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. I had my book, a dictionary from GoodWill, all ready to go before the paper ever reached my doorstep. When I first started cutting into the beautiful Graphic 45 paper (which is so hard to do) the vision started changing.
I originally thought I would use a rod in the center and used an old paper towel holder which worked for holding it secure while working but later decided that was not the look I wanted. After searching around my kitchen for awhile I found this bowl and thought it was just right.
