Decorative Back on my IKEA chair

Customer Freebie bird from http://www.scrapgirls.com/, which I got about a year ago! Always loved this bird, but wasn't sure how I was going to use her.

I pulled the .jpg file into my photoshop program and adjusted the size to my liking, printed it out, and cut it up as my pattern. I absolutely adore RED, so that was an easy pick for the color of the bird. I found some really nice fabric at a quilt shop in town. The white fabric has a white-on-white pattern to it. It's pretty thick so I think it'll hold up to our abuse.

I debated on the white background. I was considering adding a cute little block stripe of different fabrics at the bottom of the back but in the end SIMPLICITY won out. And I think the green helps make the red pop out and not to have any other distractions in the white background fabric.

By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
