Welcome to Friday~~Finding Beauty
I finally completed a project I have been working on for a bit.
I posted a while back that I had decided to create ART from some of my photography.
I have always loved art work on my walls and decided when I made this last move to my new condo, I was going to start putting my money where my mouth was– finding beauty in ourselves and our passions, and get my own work up on the walls.
So, I took a step off the cliff and enlarged a photo (see previous post). I think it’s something along the lines of 36″ by 30″
I had so many frames from my previous “purchased” art that I thought I could just put it on of those frames. I tried and tried– I just couldn’t make it look right.
So I headed to Hobby Lobby (see above) chose the colors of matt and frame and had them put this together for me.
I have to admit I was nervous about investing a good spot of money on this — the negative monster that pops into my head too often kept asking me “what if you spend this money and you hate it?”
But I didn’t!
I have to honestly say I enjoy the way it turned out and how it looks over the sofa.
I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to do this, but surrounding myself with MY work is inspiring and very uplifting to my spirit. I smile when I walk past these.
Try taking one of you photos that you enjoy (a place you love that brings wonderful memories or just an artful shot) and enlarge it– I challenge you– something bigger than 8×10 — I am betting on you that you will love it.
You will enhance your home AND your heart.
These last couple of shots are simply so my sis in Montana could see up close. 🙂

The things you look at change.
