Sometimes is REALLY NICE.....

Such a sweet card...such a sweet outlook.
I feel so lucky to have these amazing Art Girls in my life.
They are so talented and are amazing artists, but more then that they are AMAZING people.
Such a beautiful way to tell someone they are loved....thank you Lynne for this reminder as well as the inspiration!

To be told "You are LOVED"!

I have an upcycle project for you today.
I purchased a small whitewashed wood hanging 
at TJMax for $2.00.
I thought it had possibilities.....

When I went to use it I realized....
it had a crack down the front of it so
I took a piece of textured wall paper and
adhered it to the wood.

Next, I pulled out an Architextures ~ Junque Pack
and adhered pieces parts on top of the wall paper.

I painted on a layer of Multi Medium to
help keep the paper mesh together.

I tied a bit of jute around the board
and added a piece of wire mesh
all which are held in place by a staple.

I spritzed a few leaves with water and painted on a bit
of Lime Cordial ~ Glimmer Glam.
I painted Caspian Sea ~ Glimmer Glam onto the flower
and spritzed everything with 
Precious Metals ~ Glimmer Mist.

What would a wall hanging be
it if didn't say something from the heart????
(the reason I love Yvonne's stamps so much!!)

Once everything was all glued down
I sprayed the whole piece with
Bronze ~ Glimmer Mist.

Here are photos of the finished project.....

Thank you for stopping by
and remember to try to have your last words be
