On Saturday morning, Patryk ended life as I know it by throwing out my back. I cannot get comfortable unless I am flat on my back. It really makes life with 3 kids and a third shift husband complicated, as I cannot lay flat on my back no matter how badly I want to.
I can't even sit in my craft room for extended periods of time, as the wooden chair I sit on starts to bother me after only 15 or 20 minutes. Nonetheless, I still managed to get this page done yesterday for the weekend challenge over at Paper Posies. It is a sketch challenge, and as I tried to complete this on Sunday unsuccessfully, I thought I would post it today. I wasn't able to do the stitching until this morning...the kids wouldn't let me have 2 seconds to myself last night! I loved this sketch so much!
Here's the sketch:
And here's my take:
Paper Loft Dude collection papers, sanded. Mulberry tag: Paperbilities. Random raffia. Acrylic paint applied with the other end of the paintbrush for brown dots. White dots on title accent: gel pen. MM eyelets. American Crafts letter stickers. Heart shaped vellum tag random from my stash. I hand stitched a strand of raffia onto the title accent. Vellum accents are inked.
Maybe I'll get up there again, I'm not sure. All I know is I have to go rest my back...it hurts :( Hope you are all having a better day than I!
