Well, I wanted to participate in the Made It Myself Linky Party with You Had Me At Craft today and just needed to make it easy for fellow "linkers" to view my creation. I blogged about this one way back in February, but this creation wasn't a stand alone creation on that day's blog. So, I am just re-blogging to share it again.
Hope you like it.....
I was inspired by Amber Life, Love, Green www.lifelovegreen.com to work on an altered frame. Her "Old Key Wall Art" was gorgeous!!! http://www.theiheartblog.com/2010/09/old-key-wall-art/
I had just recently purchased some rustic star accents, an old picture frame, and had a few lonely old yard flags laying around. I am using a cardboard cutout for the base, patterned paper, and ribbon as well. Curious to see my final project.
Thanks Amber!!! :O)
OK, so as I am finishing my "altered frame", when it dawns on me that I am not working with a shadow box, therefore, it won't fit back in the frame, duh! So, I came up with an idea for a two-sided wall decor. One side is dedicated to Stars, Stripes, and Freedom. The other is a Home Sweet Home picture. It would have been nice to frame it, and maybe that will still happen, but this is what I was able to complete for now.
