Bon Jour Mon Amis!
Hope you all had a great long holiday weekend! It's hard to believe that September is here already. While it always seems a little bittersweet that summer is almost over, after a super steamy hot summer, I am oh so ready for autumnal weather to arrive!
Today I'd like to share with you one of my latest creations, a framed and matted silverware print!
I found this pretty frame a few weeks ago. It already came double matted, and originally held black and white photos of flowers. While it was pretty, you know me, I just have to change things up! So, I began by painting the frame a nice taupe color, which matches the inner mat.
But what to add to the three openings? I immediately thought of silverware! The Graphics Fairy is where I found the amazing fork, spoon, and knife prints! Aren't they pretty? I also found the lovely background print there too! So, I first printed out the background, then the silverware on top of it.
I'm really happy with how it all came together!
I'm also super excited, as a week from now hubby and I will be leaving for France! We will spend 10 days there, driving along the French country side for the first half of the trip, then spending the second half in our very favorite city in the world, Paris! I can hardly wait! We've talked about this trip for months, and it really snuck up on us! We've always gone to Paris in the spring, so visiting in the fall will be a real treat! Thanks to hubby's many years working for the airlines, we are able to fly very cheaply (we fly standby, keeping our fingers crossed that we make it on the plane!), and we love taking advantage of such a wonderful benefit.
I plan on purchasing lots of treasures while there, that I will offer for sale here on my blog when we return (thank goodness for expandable suitcases!). So stay tuned!
Later this week I'll be sharing with you more photos of my craft room. I'd love to have you pop back in for another visit!
