I'm not artsy
but I aspire to be
so I did this one for the

its another pin from my Simple DIY board

just Elmer's glue and then paint the whole thing one color
this one was clearly the one from Pinterest
here's mine

I used a cookie cutter to help outline my pictures
I used the fall leaf, in retrospect I wish I would have 
used my Mickey cookie cutter

this is the face and oh-so-loud cry next to me as I was trying to work
upset that she ran out of go-gurt

and this is what it looked like after it was painted

the way the glue and canvas worked together was cool, 
my art not so much

I'd like to do it again, but put A LOT more effort in my art design
OR just have someone else do the design

I think next month I'll do some PinterTest baking
