I wanted to create a beautiful gift for my best friend of 30 years, as a Christmas gift. I purchased a wood sign with a heartwarming quote and a wood picture frame. I painted the picture frame with Prima Heavy Black Gesso and then using a white Folk Art Home Décor Chalk paint and a foam brush, I dry brushed on some white to give a distressed look to match the distressed look of the wood sign. I then used E6000 to glue the frame to the sign. I tried to stay within the distressed feel of sign so I recolored a recent photo of us to black and white so that it would lend a more timeless feel. I added beautiful pieces (including the exquisite Beautiful Board product) from Reneabouquets to complete the overall textured quality for a treasured keepsake that can be displayed in her home for years to come.
Below the pictures will be a link to my YouTube video for a complete start to finish process of how I made this project! I will also add the links to the products used from Reneabouquets.com.
