Donna Reed Dreams
Everybody Loves Raymond reality...
The current Pink Ninjas challenge:
Prompt - Dream a little dream.
Technique - NO patterned paper
Pink Twist - Buttons
OK, so you obviously get the prompt aspect...
I fudged just a leeeetle bit on the technique. While my background definitely does not contain patterned paper, I cut the ballerina girl out of patterned paper...so does that count? Hmmm..
And I didn't include any pink buttons. I was going to...I felt compelled to but something stopped me.
The base of the layout is a piece of cardboard that I painted erratically with white. Then I dipped buttons in lime, turquoise, and yellow paint and decorated the base. I laid it on thick on purpose because then I heated up the paint so it bubbled. I LOVE that! The buttons I used are decorating the house.
I filled my perfect house with some Donna Reed dreams...modern day Donna Reed, of course. All natural, organic, no-high-fructose-corn-syrup, low sodium diet. Rockin body. Organized, clean scraproom. Beautiful garden and outdoor environment. $$$$$.
Yeah. Not exactly my current reality. I'm working on it, though...
(Look! I sneaked in one of my current loves of my life onto the layout...my Shark steam mop. Luh-huh-huv it!)
