Let’s talk. For a while now I’ve been sick of my iPad case. It serves it’s purpose, but it’s boring. Just leather. Just black. Just blah. So, like any able-bodied crafter, I decided I’d give it a revamp. I saw this iPad cover by Free People and loved the feather print. Perfect opportunity for me to finally make some foam stamps, right?
It all started off innocent enough. Prelim pics of the disaster that was about to strike.
Now — one thing that did turn out right? The feather foam stamps. Hopefully they’ll get used again.
And… yeah. Then this happened. I started by just printing the stamps haphazardly on the cover, but the acrylic paint + leather material + foam stamps just didn’t mesh well together. The stamps (with the acrylic paint) would work much better on paper or fabric — not leather. I got pissed (surprise) and just painted over everything to try a patterned look. Also failed.
Oh well. The phrase “can’t win ‘em all” also applies to crafting.

Have you ever started a project with good intentions and then watched as it quickly fell apart?
(If your answer is no, then I don’t believe you. Second thought: what are Martha Stewart’s failed projects?)
