Sheet Music Flowers...

Hi Friends,
I have been so busy lately with family in town, potty training our baby girl, and getting ready for an upcoming boutique show. My house is strewn with fabric pieces and paint brushes as I am trying to increase my inventory for an upcoming women-owned small business event where Burlap and Buttons will be a vendor! If you are in the Bay Area send me a message and I'll get more info to you so you can come!

Anyway, I thought I would share a few projects I'm working on for the upcoming event... Of course, I will probably be interuppted as soon as Ava wakes up with "Mama, pee pee!" and have to run to the "big girl potty" with her :) But, I will do my best to get this post up before she wakes up from nap-time. 

I was inspired by these framed art pieces from Target...

{Found HERE}

But I have also been wanting to try some paper flowers... My mom had some antique sheet music that was just the right amount of aged without being brittle... I bought the shadow box frames on a buy 1 get 1 free deal and painted & distressed them. I used burlap fabric as the background behind the flower... I'm so happy with how it turned out. I can't wait to try another one to have a set. 





I will be selling these at the boutique sale in March... 
but for now they are in my Etsy store if you want to take a look!

Later this week I have a great and EASY DIY project to show you... And, Ava is awake. See ya soon!
