So, one of Matthew's dear friends from high school got married this weekend and we had a blast at the wedding! I'm always so excited to go to these things as I'm just hitting the age where everybody we know is getting hitched (and I'm just stockpiling ideas for when Bab and I eventually tie the knot). The couple explicitly stated that they didn't want gifts, but I found this eight-by-eight, sixties' art print and just had the hankering to do something extra to it. When I saw it on the shelf at the Hendersonville Goodwill, I obviously loved the frame, and the colors in the picture are pretty, but it just felt kind of "blah".
|NOW we're getting somewhere...|
|Look how sweet the little frog's expression is!|
"Does it read like he's riding the pig as a means for transportation?" I asked Bab. Bab said yes. But we weren't through!
|((royal trumpet fanfare))|
Last but not least, caption time:
|I don't know if you can read it, but it says "Tomorrow they would start on the big hunt"|
Anyway, I was so proud of the finished product that I thought I would share it with you. I don't usually like "upcycled" stuff, as it can have a tendency to ruin a perfectly good old thing to make it "more modern", but I have to say in this case I prefer the done-over picture to the original. Maybe I'm biased because I made it, though! From start to finish, this took about 40 minutes, which was mainly deliberating over which image to use and waiting for the Mod Podge to dry. And I didn't have to feel bad coming empty handed to the wedding! :)
How about you? Been up to any craftiness this past weekend? Any good scores at the sales? Let a girl know!
Happy Monday, see ya tomorrow!
