The Paper Dog

Monday

A gift...

Hi and happy Monday to you!  I'm so happy you stopped in to say hello.  

I do enjoy creating gifts for others but this was a tough one for me because I so wanted to added bunches of butterflies and hearts all over it but I held back because I knew the recipient is a bit more simple and wouldn't appreciate my "frilly" addictions.  Here's what I mean:
The quote says "No words are necessary between to loving hearts".  Isn't that so true?  I simply decoupaged the ugly frame with old book paper using Claudia Hellmuth Studio Multi-Medium in matte, took out the glass and put it all together. 

I also added a Pinterest button to my sidebar for you to oogle at all the things that make me so happy these days.  I try my best to add a few pins daily.  Some may even inspire your creative soul like they do mine.  Hope you enjoy this bright sunny day!

Supplies: 
frame- flea market find for .25 cents 
canvas - from my great grammies stash
paper - old vintage free book from the market
2 little heart charms from my personal stash

Oooo I love this piece. Simple and elegant. The fabric you used is what I have used to paint over and it gives great texture.
