Guess what this is?
If you guessed that it is the cover of my December Daily album....
you are right!
I had the great idea of wanting to make a cover out of wood this year. Well, I almost gave up when I could not find the wood that I wanted to use. Hint...do not look at Lowes or Home Depot.
After a trip to Michael's (duh!), I found thin pieces of wood in thicknesses from 1/8" on up. I had my husband cut them to size for me and then I stained then with an oil based stain. The color was much too dark and no wood grain showed through. Plus I told my husband the wrong size and they were too small. So, I was ready to give it up once again.
But he came home with more wood, cut them to the correct size and this time I used a water based stain. And now I love the result:
Now if I could only find the time to work on the pages.
