So I've been looking for a piece of art to put above the back of my stove for a while. I know most people just put like spices and such up there, but I'm at the stove a lot so just like my gallery wall, I wanted something pretty to look at. I haven't found anything I've loved that was the right proportions for the spot - until I saw this post on Pure and Lovely and was totally inspired. I love the meaningful way she separated the words, but as for font, I wanted something a little sweeter.
So I nervously attempted to make my version of it. This is my result:
I used cradle board and acrylic paint. The font is "Lobster" from Google font preview which I traced and transferred onto the cradle board. I just free-handed the flowers. I also sprayed them with polyacrylic spray to protect them from all the food and yucky-ness that goes on around the stove. What do you think? I wish I had made the flower on the right hand side lower, but oh well. This is the first time I've ever attempted something like this, so you live and learn!
I've also been working on this desk. $40 from Craigslist and it's exactly what I'm looking for - antique but not too ornate or bulky because I'm going BOLD with it. Can't wait to share the final result!
