Earlier this year, when perusing my
local TJ Maxx I came across a GREAT
wooden home decor piece in the
clearance section. I figured I could
paint over it or whatever
when the notion so inspired me....
Now....having just returned from an
AMAZING summer get~a~away....
I couldn't WAIT to create
a "piece" of my MEMORY
and my clearance find was
just what I needed.
The first thing I did was scuff up the
shiny finish with my Groove tool.
Now, for the inspiration of the flowers on
my "memory" piece....
the Beach Rose,
Queen Anne's Lace
To recreate the Beach Rose,
I chose the DIY Burlap Blossoms
sprayed with a bit of water,
and colored with watered down paint
and it was just PERFECT!
I then pulled out an oldie but goodie....
Darjeeling Foliage Assortment.
....a bit of spray and paint
and both leaves look similar.
And there you have it....
MY SUMMER MEMORY!
The DIY Queen Ann's Lace was the
ideal addition to my flower cluster.
I pulled one of the clusters apart
and tucked then randomly
around my "Beach Rose".
As you know.....I love a good quote!
I hope you are having a WONDERFUL summer
full of "moments" to remember....
...and creating something
to remember your "moments"!!
