Bon Jour, Mon Amis!
Hope you are all having a great week so far!
Today I thought I'd share with you the cherubs that I recently hung in my craft room.
They are actually a paper mache form that I found a few years ago at a garage sale. I didn't know at the time what I'd do with them, but since I love anything involving vintage sheet music, I just knew that the two would make a perfect fit!
I made them a few years ago, and never got around to hanging them til now! (do you ever do that?) Actually, there just never seemed to be the perfect spot to hang and enjoy them.
The cherubs ended up being much more time consuming than I imagined, but it was such a fun project! I just randomly tore pages of vintage sheet music, and used Mod Podge to adhere the pieces to the form. I then went over the entire thing with a couple more coats of Mod Podge. I used a bit of craft chalk to apply a hint of blush to the angels cheeks, as well as their lips. I had debated on painting on eyes, but thought that might make them look creepy!
I've hung the angels in an antique frame that I also painted white. The frame has alot of meaning for me, as it used to hold a photo of my dad and his sisters sitting in a buggy being pulled by a horse. My dad must have been about 3 years old at the time, and it was the neatest picture. Sadly, the glass and photo were badly damaged from being stored in my mom's attic. Anyway, my mom gave me the frame, as she knew I would find the perfect use for it! It used to be black, and after I painted and distressed it, I couldn't believe how beautiful it was! The details are just amazing, and didn't even show up with so many coats of black paint!
If my dad were still with us, he'd be 90, so this is one old frame!
I think my angels look right at home here!
I got a little snap happy taking their photos this morning for my blog post!
I'm so glad that I finally found a place to hang the angels and frame!
After redecorating my craft room this summer and painting a formerly icky red brick wall that I never liked, I now have the perfect home for my angels! When hubby saw that I was painting the brick, he was none too pleased! Then I reminded him that it was my craft room, after all, and I don't tell him how he should decorate his
man cave garage! (tee hee!) I just love the way it looks now that it's white, and think my angels look good there, too!
Thanks for visiting today!
