So it’s been a while since I wrote. I have been busy crafting. I have realized that I absolutely hate to seal my creations. While painting is very forgiving I don’t feel the same is true of sealing.
Anyways I wanted to have a bakery window in my kitchen. I grabbed an awesome graphic from the graphicsfairy.com and set to work. I really wanted my last name on the image so I used PicMonkey to edit the image… actually I needed a really large resolution so I used all the fonts that the original image had and recreated it. I ended up getting it professionally printed as a decal so I could place it in the frame.
For the frame, I found it at Goodwill. It was originally gold and while it was beautiful it did not stand out against my kitchen walls. Since shades of blue are what I am using to tie my whole home together, I used Napoleonic Blue from Annie Sloan to paint the frame. I went over with a wet cloth in certain areas to have the gold show through.
