A Productive Afternoon

I saw this post from Tattered and Timeless a few weeks ago and was totally inspired. And then I completely forgot about it. :) Then this afternoon I was looking through my saved pictures inspiration file and came across the post again.

I had everything on hand to make something similar. I got the unfinished wood frame on ETSY a while back for $.97. I knew I could do something with it. For this project, I painted, sanded and distressed it. Isn't that blue delicious? I am in love with light blues right now. I want to paint everything in my house this color. :)

The framed text is from an old French workbook from college. The page was a bit too bright so I distressed it a bit by painting a watered down brown on it. The "JOY" is a sticker on the outside of the glass which adds a bit of dimension.

The flower was done using this technique. I used fabric from the clearance bin from my local craft store and (get this) an old Anakin Skywalker costume my son grew out of years ago. The Force is totally with this project!! :)

Here is it outside. (I find I get the best pictures outside.)

And here it is in it's new home on a shelf in my living room.
