Hello and Happy March!!! Spring is getting closer!!!
Today I am sharing a Pinterest inspired project at Sheila's BLOG. I have been dreaming of travelling someplace warm with no snow or freezing rain!!!
I have some old maps and wanted to frame them. I have one 8 x 10 frame and one 5 x 7 frame.
I took two of my favorite travel quotes and put them on my mat. One I traced, but the other I recreated using a font on my computer (Ballerina Script from dafont.com).
I wanted the vinyl on the inside of the glass, so I flipped the quotes and put them on my cutting mat.
Weeding the quotes was interesting!
Once they were weeded I decided I wanted to put the images on the outside of the glass and then flip the glass over. That way I could center the quotes to the frame. Some 8 x 10 frames are not exactly the same size as the glass if the frame sides are thick.
I used my clear contact paper to transfer the images to the glass.
Next, I took the frame apart and flipped the glass over.
The brown frames looked ok, but I wanted to jazz them up. I painted them turquoise and coral. Once the paint was dry, I distressed the frames with a little brown paint.
Here's to you and any future training you may do!!!
Thanks Sheila for having me over today!!!
