Two of my favorite things.
For those of you that don’t know me (Suzanne) - I wear Turquoise – a LoT!
And Rhinestones- well – lets just say I like the old costume jewelry kind-
always keeping an eye out for a GreAt Steal on those!!!!
So when my photographer friend Shelli took this photo of
Turquoise Dr. and Rhinestone Dr. and posted on facebook, I knew I had to have it!
So- sweet Shelli at (www.photographibyshelli.com) let me order a pic of the road signs.
I was tickled! (She has lots more awesome pictures if you’re interested in prints.
She was a vendor in our 2009 Barn Sale, and she does awesome work.)
Here’s how I ended up with the beautiful picture above.
First things first- Buy a cheap frame – mine came from Walmart
Check out the assortment of stones on hand…..
Wound up using a large greenish turquoise cross to highlight
the sign color along with a few chipped stones as well.
Then went digging through stickers and scrapbook stones
since I couldn’t part with any of my vintage costume rhinestone brooches.
… Break out the always handy Dazzle Tac
( I’m sure E6000 would work just as well).
So I picked matching corners for each and glued/stuck on.
Viola- It hangs proudly on my bathroom wall-
with some turquoise hanging around pretty close to it!
Just a little something I made…..
