Well I got my three words:
vintage, fun, and romantic
Once I got my words I spent a couple days stewing on those words and trying to decipher what direction to take.
Since I'm a do-er I thought it would be much more fun to make something...then go out and buy items. Because That's the way I roll.
So I think I first headed out to pinterest to get some ideas. I'm not especially Vintage or Romantic ( I can be fun, though) so I wasn't too sure where to start.
It was there that I came across this print from REStyleShop.
I thought it was quite lovely, but wanted to take that idea and make it by own. I thought if I replaced the vespa with a vintage romantic bike I'd hit the mark more.
So, here we have my Life is a Beautiful Ride magnet. It is 2.5" by 3" so I had to use my teeniest paint brushes. It's painted in oil and sealed all ready to be shipped out tomorrow.
Truth be told I had a great time making that magnet...and half way through the project I thought..."Hmm, I think I'll make another one for my shop to sell".
So I repeated the idea and made one more for the shop:
Hope my swap buddy enjoys!
