Adios 2010 and my last project of the year.

Framed book pages and our last name.
(I couldn't think of a good title)
It all started out when me and the kiddos were out on a walk and I saw this book on top of a trash can... From trash to my wall. This project was fast and easy

Step 1 find book in the trash!

Step 2 take an old frame that was hanging on the wall for 6 months without anything in it.

Step 3 rip pages out of said book and crumble them up and use double sided tape to adhere to the cardboard backing.
Step 4 I forgot to take a picture of me painting but I printed out our last name and then put it under the glass and then used black acrylic paint to paint over it. Then a took a little piece of denim and stamped the year we got married on to it.
 (This is my tribute to Freckled Laundry one of my bloggy obsessions.)
Here it is all assembled.
And here it is all hung up.
 My hubby had a great idea after it was all finished. 
"Why don't you use the sheet music from the song we danced to at our wedding?"
How sweet is that, and what a great idea!
Adios 2010- I sure had fun this year I can't wait to see what 2011 brings.

  8. That is such a fabulous idea! And the sheet music would be beautiful done that way too!
    Our men can come up with some really great, creative ideas sometimes, huh. It comes from hanging out with us though, maybe.:]
