This week I've been lightening things up around here and adding simple touches of spring into my decor. I found a new shade of aqua blue that is my current obsession. Unfortunately it is in a tiny bottle of acrylic craft paint....Ceramcoat sea foam. It is the softest most beautiful shade of blue and I want to paint everything with it, but I'm trying to make that tiny little bottle stretch. I used it on my family monogram frame and distressed it to let the heirloom white show through. LOVE IT!
Have I mentioned how much I adore this burlap scrapbook paper? It looks so real.
This is how my frame started out a month or so ago. I loved the colorful pattern on this paper, but it quickly became too busy for me and I had to change it. Plus, you couldn't really see the monogram, which is my favorite part of this frame. So I changed it.
This time I went with something more simple, but still with a bit of color. I loved it for a few weeks, but of course got tired of it and wanted a change. Again with the D.A.D.D. (decorating attention deficit disorder).
I probably would have left it like it was, if it weren't for that darn craft paint I fell in love with. So I peeled off the vinyl lettering and started over. This is by far the simplest look, but I love it. The colors are just perfect for spring. And I found some gorgeous scrapbook paper that is almost identical to my new favorite paint color to wrap my candles in.
