Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Sometimes All You Need Is A Makeover :)I can get captivated every once in awhile by the show What Not To Wear. Have you seen it? The hosts of the show work with someone to give them a total makeover - clothes, hair, makeup - it is pretty amazing to watch the recipient of the makeover transform before your eyes - not just externally, but internally as well. You can see their confidence build with the outer transformation. I must confess that I am not very into makeup and clothing. There was a time when I wore a ton of makeup and then I grew out of it. I decided that other than a touch of lipstick on special days, I didn't want to tug and pull on my face. So you will usually find me sans face paint and in clothing that I'm sure does not make my mom very proud :) I have my reasons - mostly craft related. If you play in the craft room as much as I do your clothing definitely becomes a part of the creative process :) And, okay, maybe I also like to hide in schlumpy clothes...but that's another story for another day....maybe I need to see how I can make myself over - to build my confidence and feel as good on the outside as I do on the inside and vice versa. How 'bout you?
I decided my poor masking tape needed a makeover too! Not that there is anything wrong with the lovely vanilla tinted tape as it is...I just thought it might want a little boost :) So, off I went with my roll of masking tape, my Jet Black Staz-On ink and the En Francais background stamp...and the rest is history :) Here is a video to show you how I made this card. I hope you like it!
