{balloons and freelance whales}

I love those afternoons where I actually have nothing to do. I spent one last week like this: {From this DIY on A Beautiful Mess}

A friend gave me 20 blank canvases a few months back {because he's moving to Spain and didn't want to lug along 20 blank canvases} and I had these prints I made a couple weeks ago that I wanted to do something with. So, this. But now that I've started, I can't stop. And I'm going to have a mound of silly balloon pictures lying around the house.

But. We will cross that bridge when we come to it. {That's, like, a really wise-old-sage-sounding way of talking about procrastinating.}

  2. Hmmm...I'm confused...how did the picture get beneath whatever you were rubbing off? Did you put the white modge podge(?) on twice? I missed something. (You look absolutely beautiful in the video, though!)

  4. I love the way that turned out! You needed a time lapse counter in the corner - or on second thought after I read the tutorial, maybe not. I could give this assignment to one of my kids....hmmm!!

  6. This is awesome, what a beautiful finished product! I love a good bit of time lapse, too! Man, I am inspired to give this diy a go sometimes...if only I was clever at paint balloons like you!

Say anything you want. It doesn't even have to be relevant.
