A Little Sign for Jaxon & Mistakes Happen, just use more paper!


So the other day, my neighbor has a baby. Well, we didn't find out for a bit. Like a week. I sent the hubby over with spare veggies for their goats and pig, and voila, we find out Alison had her baby. His name is Jackson, reports back the hubby. I mean, I knew she was having the baby at some point in August...but the time kinda got away from me. Sure she was counting the days, especially with all the heat we've been having.

So, I made her a little sign. Good thing Shirley went over to bring some of her spare veggies and told me that the baby's name had an X in it. Too bad I wasn't listening closer. I spelled it Jaxson.


So, I told her my "Jaxson" wall hanging was ready and did she want to go over and visit again with me. (Any excuse to hold a baby). Then she broke the news. NO "S" in the name. Boogers.

So, enter in utility knife since I modged podged the letters on. So, I cut out this banner to cover up a rather large mess I had going. Yeah, those letters didn't work either, way too big. So, I overlapped them and more glimmermist. I like it now. Better I think!!

The little fairy on the bottom was fun too with her baby. She is my first digi stamp. I didn't know that there was such a thing until I started reading blogs. And, I don't have any copics yet, they are just testing them at my local I printed her out on photo paper and used some old photo markers I had. I then got real brave and used some clear glimmermist to give her some sparkle. It helped blend in the markers. I was so excited!

I bought her from the Emeralde Faerie blog for a baby page or project a bit back and finally got to use her!

The board this was made on was a premade picture from Walmart that I covered with gesso (left thick for texture) and then sprayed glimmermist on. I love making something was a pretty horrible wall hanging!!

Have a great night and remember, just a little more paper makes everything better!
