I am joining Debbiedoos Blogging and Blabbing for her magazine challenge.
This is my inspirational project.
For this project I used an old wooden picture frame, a vintage child's illustrated book and a button.
I also needed primer, paint, mat board, decoupage glue,spray mount adhesive, hot glue gun and ribbon.
The only items I purchased were the old frame, the book and mat. I found the book and frame in a local antique store for a total of $8. The matted frame was purchased at a discount store for a buck.
I found the project in this book which was on a freebie table at a garage sale a few years back.
And here is my copy-cat version! I primed and spray painted the frame a sunny yellow. Then I wiped on a bit of antique gold rub and buff and sanded lightly.
I used decoupage to adhere the verse's to the frame. I love this part of the project!
Here on top and....
And on the bottom of the frame as well.
I used spray adhesive to attach the illustration to the mat and then used my glue gun to attach it to the frame.
I hot glued the button onto the bow and then hot glued the bow to the frame.
I have one more step and that is to spray a sealer but I want to allow it to dry a bit today.
And there you have my copy!
Total cost for me since I had so much on hand is $9.
I am hanging it in my Grand-daughter Addison's room (at our home) which is painted this aqua blue. It appears darker in this pic than it really is. I am still debating where to hang it so I just hung it on a wall for a quick pic. I will take another pic when I get it all situated and post that too.
I really wanted to join Debbie for her challenge!
I am a wee bit behind as usual... since I have my hands full all day with a very busy wee one!
Thanks for coming by to visit me. My comment button moves around and nothing I do, and I mean nothing, ever changes it. Usually its at the top of the post...sorry for any inconvenience.
