Take Flight

A few days ago, I showed you guys my latest map art, but told you there was more to it, which is what I'm here to show you now.

I started with this ugly picture/picture frame that cost $3 at a yard sale. Like the frames for my map art, I sanded it and stained it Dark Walnut.

For the 'picture' part of it, I cut out the words 'Take flight' with my silhouette and stenciled it onto some burlap. It looked great, but the blue and peach had to go!

I ended up painting the mat warm white and the inside border was painted the same chocolate brown as the 'Take flight'.

I hung the pictures at eye level, but unfortunately the dresser below is kind of on the short side. I'm thinking it will look fine once I put more accessories on the dresser though. Oh, and the pictures aren't crooked; I just desperately need another kind of camera lens =)

And here's one more picture just because I had it and didn't want to waste it, ha.

Grin, I am glad you posted that last pic too, it is my favorite!
Love your wall art, so envious of your silhouette. I want to do a design on a pillow and have been wrecking my brain about how to transfer it.
The combo with this project and the maps looks really fab. Great job.

Looks great!
I like how you painted the inner border of the mat brown. It really makes the wording stand out
