One Day at a Time

I've been working on putting together a birthday gift for a friend. I decided that before I wrapped it up, I'd try to take some pictures to share with you. That's easier said than done! Reflections on the glass and tiny fabric threads which show up as checks in the pictures made photographing this a challenge! With some creative angles, I was able to get two pictures to share with you. The most 'creative' thing about this project was deciding how to layer and sponge the paints used to create the shabby chic effect on the frame. Although it was pretty in all white and cream, I decided to add a touch of antique gold that I just skimmed over the top of the ridges and dots. I like how it enhanced the patterns in the frame molding. Next, it gets wrapped in roses tissue. . .and delivered to Paula. I hope she likes it!

Remember. . .

One day at a time. . .
