Well I'm in the midst of projects overload! I swear everywhere I turn there are projects waiting to be completed! I have lots to show you, but each one is missing something before I can say it's done.
Except for this one.
This one, took a couple of hours this weekend because I had to let things dry before I could put all the pieces back together. But other than that it was quick and easy. Just how I like them. (get your mind out of the gutter)
I've seen these art pieces everywhere with the gold letters. You can see some here. But since I'm impatient and crafty, I wanted to create my own. Kind of like this.
I used a black frame with mat that I had picked up a goodwill at some point, Martha Stewart Gold Metallic Paint, and some chipboard letters from my scrapbooking stash.
The mat that was in my frame had a pale creamy inner liner that just wasn't doing it for me, so I paint it with MS gold paint. Then I painted each letter (twice) and let them dry.
When all of the paint was dry, I glued the letters on to white cardstock that had been cut to fit in my frame and then put the whole kit and caboodle back together.
See... easy peasy.
And I really like it.
It makes me SMILE.
This picture just doesn't do it justice. It has just a little bit of shimmer when the light catches it.
I'll show you tomorrow, where it ended up. I just need to take some good pictures of the space.
So whadya think? Does it make you smile?
p.s. - This post is NOT sponsored by Martha, I just love her stuff. But Martha if you want to sponsor a future post, call me. lol. Pffft. As if she reads my blog.
