Today we celebrate our three year anniversary, I'm not really sure what we will be doing as of yet, but we'll be celebrating throughout the weekend. Rich has a date with Court this morning, then he has to do some work.
So I'm hoping to have a nice dinner, some beer steak, grilled asparagus, and twice baked potatoes.
I'm not much of a 'cook' at all so we'll see how it goes. heh. It might be a disaster, I looked over some recipes earlier in the week though and it seems pretty basic.. then again, sometimes I can't even make a good bowl of Ramen. No joke. LOL
I think I came a way up from my terrible valentine.
I really wanted to get romantic and sweet with what I wanted to make for Rich this time around.
I was inspired by this art I came across on Etsy.
I thought it was just the sweetest! And I had been wanting to do a melted crayon art, so I did!
And I think it's quite awesome.
I did do some trial and error, my first melted art attempt was terrible with the blowdryer. I'll tell you about that a lil later. (read about it here)
This time around I used a heat gun which worked much better and was faster.
I just loved how it melted. The colors are really so nice, it was hard to get a good picture with my phone, and I still don't have a working camera. T_T
I used some tape to try to keep the paint clear of the spot where I wanted to put my silhouette. Though some of the melted crayon still snuck in at the top. It's hard to get anything to stick to canvas. I don't know how some people have been doing resistance canvas work with stickers.
I took one of my favorite wedding photos
and made a silhouette out of it, and added an umbrella.
I was just soooo in love with the finished piece. Just LOVE! <3
I can't wait till he sees it. I hope he loves it as much.
On the back of the canvas I glued a lil envelope that says something along the lines of Loving Him through rain or shine. <3
I also took the coordinates from the place we went hiking to (Enchanted Rock) right after we got married, and wrote it on a scrap of one of his old belts that I loved wearing. I mostly did this because I wanted to incorporate a bit of tradition with the leather gifts being what has been given in the past at the 3yr mark.
I found this pic in my wedding album and just cracked up. What are we doing!? LOL
Happy Anniversary Honey! I love you.
