A Spring Frame-Up

Each day that I pack, I find things that I haven't seen for a while. I mentally try to take notes on where they were found and try to remember which box they are being packed into. Last weekend I was opening cabinet doors that hadn't been opened for a bit, and I said "Hello" to an old friend that had been on my kitchen wall several years ago.

I'm a sheep lover from way back. If you look on my blog list I have several sheep blogs that I keep up with on a daily basis. This fellow is just one of many sheep and lambs in my flock. He's really a chalk wall pocket, but I like him plain. He looks like a pretty serious fellow to me, so no sprigs of Ivy or trailing foliage for him.

I've been wanting a little more inspiration in my studio, so when I found him I went searching for an oval to frame him in. But there needed to be a little pattern and color...something for Spring that was easy to work with; maybe something that could be changed with the seasons. I thought a wallpaper sample would work, just a little small, but it gives the right background.

A few years ago I had the chance to grab a few discontinued wallpaper books, so I had a few options. I settled on something "Spring Green", but can change it out when the mood strikes.




I thought of pitching all these sample books, but slapped myself right afterward. I've used these papers for so many projects. Since it's close to Easter, a few vintage Easter Postcards were tucked in for display.

don't you love this patina?

So glad he's baaaaaack...
