Silhouette Decor

"Billet Doux" from One Little Bird Designs

The whole family has been sick for the last two weeks and as horrible as it is to look after sick kids when you are also sick, a few good things did come of it.  There was a lot of quiet time to work on scrapbooking projects and I even had a hint of inspiration one day and did some rebranding.  You may have noticed that I have been experimenting with the image at the top of my blog as it never looked quite right to me.  Well, I finally came up with a new design that I really liked so I also designed new business cards, watermark (as seen in the picture above), and advertisement.   That’s right, advertisement!  I finally put my first advertisement in our community newsletter and I am feeling a bit nervous about it.  We will see what happens when it comes out this summer!

The other good thing that came from having sick and sluggish kids is that I was finally able to get them to sit still for a profile picture so I could attempt to make their silhouettes.  I quite like how they turned out and I will be printing and framing each silhouette for some artwork for our main bathroom.

Happy Easter!


Wall Art for Grandparents

I have had some great feedback on the wall art projects and one of the suggestions was to make one for grandparents with pictures of all the grandkids.  This project can take up to eight black and white photos and for this example I just used photos of our family.  I think I may have to make one for my dad with all of his grandkids!  The accent colour can also be changed to almost any colour to suit your decor. This page will also be $25.00 for a 12″ x 12″ size.

Another suggestion I had was to have the pages printed on canvas so they can be hung directly on the wall.  I have been looking into this and decided to try placque mounting.   I will let you know how it turns out and if I will be adding this option to the pages.

Have a great week!!
