Okay so quite awhile back I posted this
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=261981.msg2937361#msg2937361

I attempted to glue it back together:


And then forgot all about it and that piece sat in my closet for several more years.

Well the other day one of my cleaning clients asked if I had anything I could donate to an auction for charity and I thought about that piece and decided to crop it down and here are the final results:

Here is a scan:


Photo:


Close up:


I was actually pretty happy with how it looked all cropped down. I have one fully colored section left that I made into an ATC. I still have to scan it and take pictures of it.

Thank You!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

I love it, it looks better cropped, especially on a wall that isn't "busy" with items
