Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
I've started one of my projects from my Artful Gathering classes. This little frame made from vintage book board and book paper will be the centerpiece of a fabric collage I'm making in Joanna Pierotti's class.
She's far from done. There are plans to add some eyelets and rusty wire to the bottom. I may add a bit more book paper there too. I enjoyed distressing this frame and just love all the texture.
Here's a closer look. Feel free to double click too. The beauty in the picture is my husband's grandmother, Lena. Lena is 101 years old this year and still full of life and quite independent. I love this picture of her. I think she was about 19 at the time. Here's a picture of us helping her celebrate her 100th birthday last year.
I'm looking forward to working on this over the next few weeks. I'll be sure to share the finished piece. How about you? Working on anything special this week? I would love to hear about it. Leave us a link in your comment if you like. Until next time...xoxo
