Picture This!

Have you ever had a project in mind, materials at hand and just never get around to doing it?  Well that seems to be the modus operandi of my upcycling projects.

Several years ago, I acquired a beautiful 8 pane wooden frame window.  The minute I saw it, I knew it would be perfect to showcase a photograph.  The frame sat and sat and sat – for almost four years.

Today however, I got rolling on this project and have it 90% completed.  What finally lit a fire under my butt?  A quote I saw on line.

In a field of Roses
I am a Wildflower

The word WILDFLOWER is what did it for me.

I have in my stash, some pretty digital photographs.  I am by no means a trained photographer, but I know what I like and sometimes, I hit it just right.  One of my favorite shots was an unplanned quick shot of a post and rail fence with wildflowers in front of it and spruce trees in the background.  I took the photo at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel NY 5-6 years ago.  I like the shot so much that I matted and framed it and have it hanging in my livingroom.

Today I combined that spur of the moment shot and the window frame into a beautiful wall decoration.  I’d like to somehow incorporate the phrase that inspired me to finally put the window to use into the panes, but I just haven’t figured out how yet.

If I figure out how to incorporate the phrase without compromising the integrity of the piece, I’ll post an update!
