Crafting Gone Bad Part 2

Here's where my craft failure from Friday ended up.


I would really love to show photos of my office some day. It's just so hard to get good shots up there, since it's a little windowless loft area above my bedroom. The light is so wonky that I have a 4 desk lamps going plus the ceiling light and it's still a little on the dark side.


Uh, oh. I was trying to rush to take photos before the sun goes down and the Mod Podge isn't even dry yet on my second try at this project. BTW, I let this one dry out before I added the top coat and it made no difference. Still wrinkly.

Enjoy the football game tonight, if you are so inclined. I'll be watching, but since the Browns didn't make it into the game (surprise, surprise) it's more about fun and festivities rather than the game to me.

  1. Well, at least you can enjoy your fail in your craft room...and it the light is so bad it won't be glaringly obvious! xo Diana

  2. Your craft room looks so nice and neat....cozy and comfy too. I think your project looks great, wrinkles and all. It probably isn't as noticeable on the wall, cameras can pick up every little detail. Very nice!
    Not too interested in the Super Bowl either since the 49ers lost two weeks ago. Oh well. Enjoy your evening.

  3. Pam, if you steamed your "failure" or held a blow dryer on it, do you think it would soften up enough to let you smooth it out ? I'm not a mod-podger, but I was just thinking of a way for you to salvage it. It's really pretty !

  5. What an adorable space you have! I know what you mean about bad lighting. My whole carriage house is so hard to photograph due to very bad lighting!
    I'm not watching football since Sam is hogging the television with his xbox but that's okay I'm getting caught up on my blogs!

  8. Your picture looks nice even though it wrinkled too. I wonder what's up with that? That's a GREAT office you have hidden away from the rest of the house. I so envy you. take care.

  9. Pam, I am trying to learn to live with and appreciate wrinkles so your picture looks fine to me. I would just forget about them because they are probably more noticeable to you than to others. Love your office!!-------- Shannon

  10. Even the projects that you're not happy with look 100 times better than what I could do. Feel better?

  11. We all have projects that come up short of our expectations. Don't be so hard on yourself. For the record I don't know how folks get their decoupage so perfect. Darn thing always bubbles. I do find that if you glue the paper and the surface it lays a bit flatter. Try to ignore the flaws and enjoy the overall view!!!

  12. In the first photo you can't even see the imprefections. It makes me happy to see your using them even though your not 100% happy with them. The prints are just too pretty to waste.
