I placed an order from Two Peas in a Bucket quite a while back. It was doing great until UPS gave it over to the Postal Service. No clue why they did that, but that bumped me back another 2 days. So I've had this delicious paper sitting on my desk but couldn't finish it for a week! But I finally got my box of goodies today and I'm so happy! I love this whole collection. Since this whole paper line gave me the feel of being in school, I decided to do a page about my love/hate relationship with my glasses. Glasses seem to be a Davis family curse. I thought I had gotten lucky and didn't need them until I was in the 4th grade and everything started getting blurry. I only use them to read and I try to get by without doing that.
The wood grain is the only bit that isn't from the Oxford collection. It's actually from their 'Life of the Party' line. But it just look so great with that red plaid that I couldn't leave it out.
I thought it would be fun to make a mock pair of glasses. I cut out a very retro pair from some of my wood grain paper and backed them with plastic from an old package I had laying around. I'm really pleased with them. Especially the gauze in the middle to add a little 'geek chic'.
On the 'Debate Team' paper there were these cute sayings on them. Well, with how 'brilliant' the glasses make me look, I just had to cut that one out and use it! The edges where inked with Tim Holtz's distress stains in black soot and brushed corduroy. I hope you all enjoyed this. Now (since I finally have my box of goodies) I can go create some more!
