You all know that old book pages and sheet music are part of my signature look, and have endured seeing countless projects done this way. Well, the other day, I was over at Carter's home helping his Mama to add some book pages to an old book case for the home office in her new home, and she had the fabulous idea to film me for a nice little tutorial to share with you.
I'll tell you right now that I insisted she film my arms only for this first time online tutorial because :
A. I am a woman over 50 that is more vain than I'd like to admit (and I think most of us "girls" that are over 50 are this way....) and
B. I was having a really bad hair day, (No, seriously I was.) and
C. I was caught in a typical Pacific Northwest (I still can't really believe I live here, can you?!) downpour before going to Carter's home and it made the bad hair day oh-so-much-worse.
Now that I have shared why you only see my hands (and a fraction of my nose and lips in one ten second spot) I would like to share the very first tutorial video with you. (By the way, Carter's Mama created the new blog for me on Blogger because Typepad, as much as I love it, isn't so video friendly as I would like.) I will however, be jazzing up the looks of this tutorial blog in the very, very near future (As soon as I get the password and such from Carter's Mama.)
The first (in hopefully a nice long series) of tutorials is on Decoupaging book pages. You can find it here. (The link to the tutorial blog is now on my blog's sidebar.)
Oh, one more thing...I have a fair amount of kind of...pauses....and I do not usually talk this way (any, I don't think I do) but, I was trying to get my thoughts together, and there was a bit of a race for time, as we could hear Carter on the baby monitor, stirring from his nap, and time was of the essence.
