"SMILE"

Hey! Hey ! Hey!

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.

I'm linking up at Inspiration Monday.
