One more project crossed off the list!
This project took WAY longer than it should have...I was suffering from a serious case of design paralysis. I couldn’t decide what color the frame should be, I couldn’t decide on a quote, I couldn’t decide on the color of the paper, I didn’t know if the frame was big enough, etc. etc. Finally I (mentally) slapped myself across the face and made some decisions!
The first decision was a black frame. I forgot to take a before picture, but the frame was originally gold. I used gray spray primer and FolkArt Shiny Black to paint the frame and inner frame piece.
The second decision was the quote. I found this print on Pinterest and fell in love. I would have bought this print, but it wasn’t quite what I had in mind.
I also loved this image from the Graphics Fairy.
Combine the 2 and you have this:
You don’t even want to know how much time I spent in Picasa making this…
The third decision was all about the details. I printed my new artwork on a piece of gray paper from my scrapbook stash. Then I used a piece of aqua paper to make a little heart. I used my handy dandy sewing machine to stitch it up and then bent up the sides.
Finally after a week of being a wishy-washy baby, my wall went from blank:
I love how it turned out!

If you want a copy of my print, send me an e-mail (or leave a comment). It’s nothing too special, but I’m willing to share.
