What does Tape, Ribbon and a Printer have in common?

I love creating things from scratch. My daughter will tell you that if you go away overnight, when you come back, make sure you turn on the light because everything has changed.

I was working on some signature tags the other night and my eye kept roving to the wall behind my dinette table. I have changed the theme of the the kitchen/dining area but had done nothing to the wall. I searched the internet for something out of the ordinary but cheap without success.

My eyes fell on a signed poster that I had of Venice Carnivale. The creative juices started to flow. Now I ask you, when you see poster tape, a poster, ribbon and your printer; what comes to
your mind?

I am not sure what you thought of but I saw those items and the first thing that came to my mind was to make a wallpaper border.

Since I have lots of images that I use in making my signature tags, it did not take me long to discover that I had numerous images of Carnivale mask. This is the results....




I do not have a blank wall anymore.

Wonder how long before I get another idea and come up with something else?

Stay tuned.

I am off to start knitting my tote for the International Tote Exchange, and possibly work on the convertible gloves for the Mitten KAL. Oh, I also have to finish warping my loom for the scarves I am making and spin some yarn for part of the design on the tote. Where does all the time go?

LOL! Yes, I can confirm that coming home can be an interesting experience. I have the stubbed toes to prove it.

When you originally sent me the picture of the border, I just thought you found it at Home Depot or something. I had no idea that you made it!!!

As soon as I get a house, you are so coming over to decorate.

Wonderful job mom. =)

Thank you TeAntae and Rhonda. I really love coming up with unusal things and ways to decorate. That is why my favorite magazine is Ready Made. One of these days I will growup and buy real furniture, curtains, etc., but no time soon.
