Well, we have turned the clocks forward, the sun has decided to start shining here and the temps are supposed to be in the high 60's to low 70's all week. So I must say I think Spring has finally arrived at my house. I am so thrilled - it has been a long dreary winter for sure. So to celebrate Spring today I am going to share a pretty little window I did for my Spring mantel which I will be sharing soon.
We had this little window picture in the girls room quite some years ago and when they out grew it we put it in storage. There it stayed till I found it the other day. I have been looking for a window for a project I have wanted to do but just couldn't find one I thought was the right size. So when I found this again I was ecstatic knowing it was going to work for what I wanted to do.
I painted it all white - even over the picture part but for some reason I forgot to take a picture of it before I went on to the next step but you can see how it looks with the all white coverage here. I then chose a graphic I had gotten at The Graphics Fairy. She carries all sorts of images that can be used for your projects. You really should go browse around for a while.
As you can see this is just a small piece that I have had for years. Just place it under your taped image and trace all the parts of the image you want to transfer. It will look like this when you are done. I then traced over all the areas with a black fine point Sharpie and used a medium point to fill in some of the areas of the letters. Very simple but does take a bit of time and concentration.
This is the finished product. A French window sign. When it was finished I didn't like all the white so I dry brushed a bit of Valspar's Gravity on "frame" of the window.
It turned out just as I had hoped - I love it.
This is a very easy method of image transfer that I have used for years and can be done on most any kind of project. Is it something you think you would love to try? Would love to hear about it in the comments below.
Be sure and sign up for my emails so you don't miss any of the great projects I will be sharing.
Until next time create something you love.
I will be linking up to the parties listed on the Where I Party page. Be sure and go by and visit some and check out all the great projects and inspiration found there.
