It's Business Time

For all the Flight of the Conchords fans... not that business time! I'm talking about the Business Section of the Los Angeles Times. The other day I was reading the paper and I completely disregarding the business section, feeling slightly bad for it. Then while I was perusing my crafty blogs that I read daily and I came across a DIY project that uses non other than newspaper! So, I swept up the disregarded yet highly beneficial (in many ways) business section to begin my project. Now, just a disclaimer: I find that most DIY projects almost never turn out exactly like the picture or how it is discribed. And myself being a perfectionst - hates this. Oddly I do them all the time anyways perhaps I'm hoping to achieve ultimate DIY-doer status or something. Anyways, I am proud to announce that I found this project quite a success and super easy! Naturally, I had to share it here with you all! Here is a link to the actual article with instructions and here is a photo of my first attempt. I didn't happen to have water color paint with me so I added water to my acrylic paint and it turned out perfectly. I also didn't have any fancy schmancy jewels for the center but I had buttons and I think it turned out alright. Overall, I was proud of my little orangy red slash yellow flower even though it didn't really look like the example... one day I'll get there =)

Now, I'm not sure what exactlly I'm going to do with my new little business section turned lovely... got any ideas??
