"What does that mean?" she pondered giving me a fish kiss look.
"I think we need to make this room look more like you, make it yours."
"Oh, I know you will do art and want me to put it in my room." (why do I keep hearing that? I haven't put my art in any one's room- a few things near the China cabinet, that are small!)
"No, that isn't it. We take down all the stuff animals, wash them and put funky frames up with cool magazine ads. We will use ads for make up, hair, jewelry and fashion-that you love."
"Ok, but I still don't know what you mean." she declared, hands on hips.
"I know, but give me a chance and you will have full veto power."
Now she smiles!
When she saw the frames, she became excited. So, here is one step of the process. I bought these fun, vibrant frames at Target last week. They were regularly $15-$20, I grabbed them for $4-$6. I bought her a Vogue mag, for inspiration and told her to grab some of her other mags. Now cut out what draws your attention, captures your eye. I did one and told her, "you do the rest."
;D I know this one looks familiar, lol
This is a side angle of Adele's face, in the Fuchsia frame.
Funny, how one idea gives birth to another. I gave her a pair of shoes for Christmas, and on the box it says Diva Lounge. I told her this is what you are creating. You love doing hair, make up, and fashion. She laughed and thanked me~
I found this at the thrift shop. It was over some of my garden photos. I took it down and decided we needed this in her room for impact. Here, I am painting it Metallic Black, to frame her photos.
I know it looks messy now, but I'll be back to show you how it came out and a few other ideas. She is loving her new look....more to come!
