Hi everyone and Happy Friday! First, I wanted to let you know that Jaxen’s little hospital visit and minor surgery went well- he was back to himself in just a few short hours after he woke up from the anesthesia. Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers!
I also have this floating frame that I bought from Joann’s or half off- which made it $10. It is 16×20, and when I bought it, I kind of knew what I wanted to do with it- but, wasn’t 100% sure. I knew I wanted to use etching vinyl- which is vinyl, that is crystal like, so it gives an awesome etched glass look when it’s applied to glass. Love this stuff- because etching cream can be finicky. 🙂
I wanted to not only personalize it with our last name- but our first names too- because we try to stress individuality in our little home. But- if you don’t like that, you can always put established and a year at the bottom too.
The picture I put in the frame was 8×10, and I centered it in between the glass panes, before I decided how big I wanted to cut the vinyl letters.
Since it’s see through- It was hard to photograph it- but, I wanted to try to show off the vinyl so you could see that it looks etched. The etched vinyl is placed on the outside of the glass, and the fonts I used are: Qumpellka No. 12 for the top, and Playball for the bottom.
I LOVE how it turned out- It would make a great gift for someone- a wedding, an anniversary, a baby gift- almost anything! 🙂
Yay- it seriously makes me so happy!!
So…tonight I am off to volunteer at Alexis’ Reading night- and then tomorrow is her birthday party- though her birthday is not til the 2nd of May. Wish me luck on that- and I promise I will post pics of all that we’ve made and put together for the party.
Then…Sunday we have a Pink by Design event and make in take in Omaha! 🙂 So, please if you are nearby–stop in and see us!
Thanks for stopping by today- and have a great weekend everyone! 🙂
